Rolls-Royce Has Crafted A Pinnacle Of Bespoke – The Most Expensive ‘New’ Car!

At the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este (Competition of Elegance of Villa d’Este) this last weekend, a truly unique one-off Rolls Royce was on display.

Unconfirmed reports claim it to be the most expensive new car ever produced and sold at a rumored cost of $12.8 million the Rolls Royce Sweptail is a sight to behold. A spokesman for the British Luxury car manufacturer said that the undisclosed client approached them in 2013 to realize his vision of a truly unique Rolls Royce two-seater coupe’.
From initial concept through to the finished product, the client and the Rolls Royce designers kept in touch throughout the process of its creation.

The sweeping exterior of the Sweptail is reminiscent of the coach built Rolls Royce’s 1920s and 1930s. Featuring the largest grille to grace a Rolls Royce, forged from a single piece of hand polished aluminum. Flanking this magnificent grille are thin LED running lights and circular headlamps. From head to toe, the roof is covered in sections to provide a panoramic view which Rolls-Royce claims is “one of the largest and most complex ever seen on a motor car of any marque”. Polished aluminum frames the fascia as well as the roof line.

The interior of the Sweptail has only two seats, the rear seats being replaced with a split level rear deck. The materials used in the interior include Macassar Ebony with Paldao wood complemented with Moccasin and Dark Spice leatherwork. Included in the design is a specially crafted attaché case for the owner to store his personal laptop. What Rolls Royce is describing as the Sweptail’s coup de gras, is the center console housing a one-off hand built mechanism.

At the touch of a button, the console will deploy a bottle of champagne and two exquisite crystal champagne flutes, the mechanics of the mechanism positioning the Champagne perfectly for easy access. In a statement, Rolls Royce said of the Sweptail “Rolls-Royce’s history as the world’s leading coachbuilder is at the very core of its identity as the world’s leading luxury brand. Sweptail is proof, today, that Rolls-Royce is at the pinnacle of coachbuilding…”
