$28 Million Rolls-Royce Boat Tail Makes Global Debut

Rolls-Royce have unveiled the ultra-luxurious, utterly unique Rolls-Royce Boat Tail series – a collection comprising of three unique vehicles commissioned exclusively for private clients who have complete involvement at each step of the creative and engineering process.

The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail - which is fully bespoke and designed exactly to the specification of the discerning client - is built on the same luxury architecture as the Rolls-Royce Phantom, with the Boat Tail series featuring rear butterfly panels that shift 67-degree skyward in a synchronised manner to reveal a unique hosting/picnic suite with intricate carbon-made cabinets, allowing the tail of the vehicle to transform to create an exclusive outdoor lounging experience.

With a single button press, panniers reveal themselves on both sides of the rear picnic suite. On the left, there are 2 coolers for champagne and glasses. On the right, there's a full set of crockery, cutlery and Rolls-Royce-branded dining accessories.

The ultra-luxurious vehicles also feature two picnic tables that emerge from the rear butterfly panels.

The first Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, which boasts a striking special shade of blue on the exterior, features a minimalistic body with smooth, crisp lines showcasing the superiority of the Rolls-Royce hand-craftsmanship. The front of the vehicle has a simplified classic Rolls-Royce design with front LED headlamps, recessed classic lamps, and a large pantheon grille painted in black with subtle crystal flakes.

As a truly hand-built, one-of-a-kind creation, in which both the bodywork and interior are designed and produced to the client’s specification, each of the three vehicles in the series will be completely unique, featuring a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 engine capable of 563 horsepower.

The first Boat Tail model boasts a luxe interior colour scheme that matches the exterior, featuring two-tone paintwork with wood and metallic finishes that are complimented by hand-stitched upholstery and leather sourced from the hides of Alpine cows in the Bavaria region of Germany.

Taking the title of the world's most expensive car, the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is expected to sell beginning at $28 million, although the price of each model is kept strictly private between Rolls-Royce and the client.
