An unknown multi-millionaire has commissioned this £20m+ bespoke Rolls-Royce complete with telescopic parasol and caviar fridge, because… why not!
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is a coach-built Rolls-Royce with an estimated £20 price tag, although Rolls-Royce would never do anything as vulgar as disclosing the exact price. Taking their inspiration from the the Rolls-Royce Sweptail from 2017, this new car could quite possibly be the most expensive new car to date. (That title currently resides with Bugatti’s La Voiture Noire, which sold for around $18.7 million after taxes.). The design evokes the style of cars like the 1935 Auburn 851 Speedster and 1929 Bentley Speed Six Boat-Tail.
Measuring a generous 19 feet in length and inspired by the aluminium space-frame platform shared by the Phantom, Cullinan and new Ghost models, the Boat Tail also shares the same 6.75-litre V-12 engine. Just have a look at the enormous hand-painted Azur blue bonnet! With it’s deep rich colour graduating down to a lighter shade. And finally up front, the iconic painted Rolls-Royce pantheon grille takes the place of the traditional stainless-steel finish for the first time in modern history. The crowning glory, however, is a parasol that slots into the rear of the Boat Tail to provide it with extra shade. With a stainless-steel shaft and aluminium coupling, its high tensile fabric is stretched over carbon-fiber stays. And just to be sure, it was tested in a wind tunnel.
And if all that isn’t enough for you then the convertible also features crockery from Christofle of Paris, a proper refrigerator and has a giant parasol at the back… I can see you reaching for your wallet.
We might not make cars.. however when it comes to the rest we’ve got this same style and quality covered, from our Stainless Steel Cupboards (perfect for storing your Christofle of Paris crockery) to our Stainless Steel Drinking Fountains (for when you’ve run out of Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Champagne Midas and just fancy a nice sip of water).
