The Most Expensive Rolls-Royce Ever
For most, a car in the price range of a million dollars would suffice their wildest dreams. Alas, this is not the case when it comes to a certain private collector who requested a custom Rolls-Royce estimated to cost upwards of $ 12 million dollars. This is the ultra-rare Rolls-Royce Sweptail, a one-of-a-kind coupe four years in the making.
Just about every high-end luxury feature has been included in this one-off coupe. Inspired by the classic Rolls-Royces from the 1920’s and 30’s, the Sweptail comes with a state of the art full glass roof.
The auto manufacturer gave a thorough backstory to the car's creation and influences, saying:
The grandeur, scale, flamboyance and drama of the 1925 Phantom I Round Door built by Jonckheere; the svelte tapering glasshouse, dramatic dash to axle proportion and up-sweep of the rear departure angle of the 1934 Phantom II Streamline Saloon by Park Ward; the elegantly falling waist-rail, swept tail coachwork of the 1934 Gurney Nutting Phantom II Two Door Light Saloon, and the flowing roofline, rising departure angle, and again the swept tail coachwork of the 1934 Park Ward 20/25 Limousine Coupé were all considered by today’s Rolls-Royce designers in the creation of this very distinctive motor car.
This Rolls Royce proves a very true fact: if you have the money, they will get it done.
