Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is about to take the title of the world’s most expensive car. The vehicle
is inspired by the 1932 Boat Tail, and both the interior and exterior of the vehicle feature
elements that you would usually see on luxury wooden yachts. This coach-built model
includes unique features such as a rear deck with a refrigerator, umbrella, and cocktail
tables, which are perfect for summer adventures in the Boat Tail.
The manual techniques that are used within the Coachbuild department increase the design options available to clients. To design these luxurious, expensive cars, the team started with the preliminary design before creating a full-size clay sculpture by hand. With just three vehicles available, it’s rumored by the UK’s Daily Telegraph that Jay-Z and Beyoncé are one of the lucky couples to get their hands on this stunning ride.
The Boat Tail is also inspired by the $13 million Rolls-Royce Sweptail and is likely to be the
most kitted-out model the company has ever produced. It’s powered by a 6.75-liter V-12
and measures 19 feet from front to back. The detachable carbon-fiber roof offers drivers the
chance to transform the vehicle into a coupe, and you can comfortably sit four in the Boat
The world’s most expensive car’s estimated cost is between $25 and $28 million. However, with more than 1,800 parts and 20 years of man-hours needed to create this incredible vehicle, it’s certainly one of the company’s more ambitious projects. The Caleidolegno veneer gives the vehicle a stunning finish, and the company was excited to show off this project in the recently released images online.
The Boat Tail name was last used for a series from the company back in the 1920s and
1930s. While the vehicle itself is an exciting development for the company, it also acts as the
reintroduction of the coachbuilding services within the brand. While this vehicle alone took
four years from its concept to the final product, the company will now be able to offer
individuals the chance to create personalized vehicles with the coachbuilding services in the
future to create some of the most expensive cars in the world.
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is the world’s most expensive car, and while the three models will look almost identical, they will offer their owners some personalization options. The buyers have yet to be formally identified, but they’ve been involved in the creation of the Boat Tail from the initial design stage. There’s no rush to complete the personalization stage, and the coachbuilding team is willing to take as long as needed to create a one-of-a-kind vehicle for the lucky trio who’ve secured the Boat Tail.
As the world’s most expensive car, we are excited to learn more about this incredible vehicle, and we hope more images will be released in due course of the finished product. Welcoming back the coachbuilding department to the company will certainly open up a world of possibilities for luxury car buyers in the future, offering them the chance to create customized vehicles to meet their specifications.
