Take a look at the back of the world’s most expensive new car, a $28 million Rolls-Royce Boat Tail inspired by racing yachts.
British luxury marque Rolls-Royce notes that just three of the nautical inspired custom-built motor cars will ever be made.
While the first unit arrived in May 2021, the second made its debut at the d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event in May 2022.
The Boat Tail’s most notable feature is the marine-style wood decking at the rear that opens up at the touch of a single button.
Hosting suite found at the rear include a double champagne refrigerator, bespoke cutlery and Porcelain plates from Christofle in Paris.
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is a one-of-a-kind 19-foot long automotive masterpiece inspired by the brand’s Phantom II Boattail Tourer from 1932, which itself took cues from early 20th-century racing yachts.
With a price tag of over $28 Million, the commissioned Rolls-Royce Boat Tail arrived at the time of debut in 2021 as the world’s most expensive new car, a record it still holds up till this moment.
Rolls-Royce notes that just three of the nautical inspired custom-built motor cars will ever be made, with each of the three lucky customers having the privilege to customized Boat Tail to their own taste.
“We have created a trio of exceptional cars which, although they share a common body style, are each imbued with the unique, highly personal imprint of the commissioning patron, thereby telling differing stories. Boat Tail is a distinct counterpoint to industrialised luxury.”
Though British luxury marque, Rolls-Royce, is still mute on the three customers that commissioned the Boat Tail, one of the customers is believed to be American music couple, Jay-Z and Beyonce.
While the first unit arrived in May 2021, the second of three Rolls-Royce Boat Tails that will ever be built made its public debut at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event in Italy May 2022.
Rolls-Royce said that the bespoke ride took four years to design from the ground up. At the front, the Boat Tail features a new Pantheon Grille with a unique lighting signature that looks like a modern interpretation of the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead.
But the Boat Tail’s most notable feature is the marine-style wood decking at the rear that opens up at the touch of a single button to reveal a hosting suite that include a double champagne refrigerator.
Other items found at the rear deck includes two bottles of Armand de Brignac vintage cuvée, bespoke silver cutlery with “Boat Tail” inscriptions and Porcelain plates from Christofle in Paris.
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail uses the Architecture of Luxury and 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 found in latest models like the flagship Rolls-Royce Phantom 8 and Ghost sedans and Cullinan SUV.
