Introducing the World’s Most Expensive New Car-Rolls-Royce Boat Tail worth £20 million.
Royal Royce Boat Tail
Three luxury carmaker’s clients have commissioned the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, a wholly custom and coach-built model.
The first of the three Boat Tails was unveiled on 27th May, displaying the client’s specific preferences and the extent to which the bodywork has been customized.
All models will have the same body type, but their appearances and features will be distinct.
- This is one of three Rolls Royce Boat Tails that were exclusively commissioned.
- Various nautical-themed design elements may be found on the building’s facade.
- The details of the powertrain have yet to be published.
This new model was unveiled shortly after Rolls Royce announced that its coachbuilding activities would be restarted earlier this week.
This gives potential customers the option of commissioning unique and customized body shapes while staying true to the company’s design ideas.
This quality of coachbuilding was also evident in the one-of-a-kind Sweptail shown in 2017.
Royal Royce Boat Tail-Body & Aesthetics
Rolls-Royce stated earlier this week that its coachbuilding operations would be revived. This new model was presented shortly after that announcement.
This allows potential clients to commission unique and customized body shapes while yet remaining true to the company’s design concepts.
The one-of-a-kind Sweptail displayed in 2017 exemplified this level of coachbuilding.
The car’s massive proportions, measuring approximately 5.9 meters in length, are the first thing that strikes you.
The pantheon grille, flanked by extensive and deep-set daytime running lights and classical round headlights, is located in the front.
All of this is seamlessly integrated into the new front-end design. The nautical theme is best noticeable when viewed from the side.
The wraparound windscreen is meant to seem like a visor on a boat; the gradually sloping waistline with the well-integrated hardwood deck (reminiscent of yacht decks) in the back and the unorthodox and distinctive fixed-canopy roof is the primary talking points.
The Boat Tail has a set of bold horizontally mounted taillights positioned relatively low to evoke the image of a dipping stern of a boat on the back.
Rolls-Royce has also used carbon fiber in the lower components of the automobile, such as the side sills and front and rear bumpers.
This Boat Tail is painted in a two-tone color scheme that includes a bright blue and a darker, darker blue paint shade flecked with metallic and crystal flakes.
The wheels, which are covered in white-wall tyres, are likewise painted in a dual-tone color pattern.
Rolls Royce and the clients collaborated on a few customized design features that should be highlighted.
The first is the fixed-canopy roof, which complements the car’s sculptural appearance by extending out to the deck and resembling flying buttresses.
Rolls Royce has provided a temporary cover (tonneau) for the seats if the clients encounter inclement weather while the roof is off.
The second notable feature is the dark-colored wooden rear deck, which is finished in a caleidolegno veneer.
The brushed stainless steel pinstripe inlays on the open porosity timber deck aesthetically serve to lengthen its appearance.
The deck’s butterfly-style doors open to a precise 67-degree angle and are hinged towards the centerline.
When the decklid is lifted, the contents below it, including fine cutlery, silverware, towels, and other items, are elevated to a 15-degree angle and presented to the owners.
Two folding picnic tables and two refrigerators are also located in this area.
One of the refrigerators was built expressly to hold the owner’s favorite bottles of champagne and can quickly cold them to 6 degrees Celsius, the perfect serving temperature.
In addition to the umbrellas in the doors, Rolls has offered a one-of-a-kind umbrella (parasol) located under the decklid’s centerline.
Royal Royce Boat Tail- Interiors
Although the interior arrangement is similar to other Rolls Royce models, the Boat Tail has several distinctive features.
The most noticeable feature is the color scheme, which features dark blue front seats and light blue rear seats.
Contrast piping on the seats and intricate stitching throughout the cabin complete the look.
The instrument panel dials are embellished with a decorative technique known as Guilloché, which adds another fascinating feature to the interior (a method more commonly used by jewelers and watchmakers).
The glove compartment also includes a special Montblanc pen housed in a hand-crafted aluminum and leather casing, as the clients are ardent pen collectors.
Even the timepieces on the dashboard were explicitly built for this Boat Tail by BOVET 1822. They are removable so that the pair can wear them as wristwatches.
Rolls-Royce has yet to provide any information on the new Boat Tails’ powertrain or technical specifications.
The 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 engine used in the Phantom, Ghost, and Cullinan is likely to be found under the hood of the Boattail.
The engine produces 555-571 horsepower and 850-900 Nm of torque.
