Unfortunately its not for sale

Four years is what it took for Rolls Royce to build this car and it definitely looks gorgeous. Say hello to the Rolls Royce sweptail which also happens to be the World’s most expensive car.

Rolls-Royce wanted to create a modern coachbuilt car they already showcased 103EX to the world about a year ago but it was a vision of the future, but Rolls-Royce claims that they have already stepped in the future and created the Sweptail. This car takes its inspiration from swept-tail of particular Rolls-Royces from the 1920s. The car was presented at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este on Saturday 27th May 2017 where it certainly attracted a lot of attention because of its unique shape and characteristics.

The entire car has been hand-tailored to meet particular customer’s needs. The cars idea came from a client who wanted a fully customised Rolls Royce. The valued customer owned several cars including a super-yachts and private aircraft. He wanted his car to be unique and like no other. The client has Rolls Royce this idea of customising and since then made a good relationship with the design department led by Taylor.

The customer wanted a car which was inspired by the beautiful coachbuilt RR’s of the 1920’s era. He also wanted it to be a two-seater with an enormous panoramic sunroof. Rolls-Royce took design inspiration from the 1934 Phantom II Streamline Saloon by Park Ward. The beautifully designed waist-rail swept tail coachwork inspired from the 1934 Gurney Nutting Phantom II Two Door Light Saloon, while the flowing roofline rising departure angle, and again the swept tail coachwork of the 1934 Park Ward 20/25 Limousine Coupé all were used in the creation of this modern car.

The first and the foremost thing which will surely attract your attention is the iconic Rolls-Royce Pantheon grille. This grille also happens to be the largest of any modern era Rolls-Royce, the entire thing is made out of solid aluminium and is polished by hand to get the mirror finish. The outer edges or the frame of the front face has been made out of brushed aluminium. The rear profile of the car is an homage that RR paid to the world of racing yachts which has inspired the client.

The highlight of the Sweptail is definitely its panoramic sunroof which also happens to be the largest and the most complex that you will ever find in a car. Thus sunroof also allows the cabin to be flooded with natural light. Talking about the cabin particular the interior comes with just two seats. That’s right! The interior of the car gets its styling inspired from a classic two-seat GT configuration which showcases the cars touring nature of its exterior body lines. There is no doubt in the fact that this is one of the most expensive cars of the world and thus the interior too has been finished with some of the rarest materials. However, one thing which will attract everyone’s attention is the fact that in place of the rear seats there is a massive wood creating a mid-shelf with a bright glass lip, and a hat shelf which flows to the outer limits of the interior volume. This itself is a thing of beauty which has been highly polished and completed with luggage rails.
