The Rolls Royce Sweptail coupe was crowned in 2017 as the most expensive car in the world with an estimated price tag of $13 million and was officially unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event in Italy.
This vehicle is not for everyone to own such beauty that you definitely have to be one of those rich people who own yachts, islands and private jets.
The Sweptail is a combined effort between the anonymous owner and Rolls Royce, the owner is still unknown, but it will be a matter of time before we know who the mysterious owner of this expensive bespoke vehicle is.
Rolls Royce crafted their vehicles in England and their assembly line looked more like an art gallery in motion, with each model bringing human craftsmanship from the seats to the interior work.
The Sweptail was inspired by the classic 1920s car models and draws its inspiration from the 1934 Phantom II Streamline Saloon silhouette, the 1925 Phantom I round door and the 1934 Gurney Nutting Phantom II rear door.
So far, it’s a one-off luxury car made in the UK by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. It looks like their usual Phantom Coupé from the front, but the only difference is the glass roof and the tapered back.
This piece of art’s build spanned around 4 years and its manufacture was completed through the Bespoke Customization Division program and made its debut at Villa d’Este in 2017.
The Sweptail is gorgeous in every sense and is based on their Phantom VII Coupe chassis and has Rolls Royce’s artdeco design tied to the vintage look.
Inside the Sweptail you will find diamond-encrusted displays, gold paint and accurate fiber optic lighting on the roof of the stars.
Also in the Sweptail you will find polished metal surfaces, Macassar Ebony and open-pore Paldao wood, a full-length panoramic glass roof, leather thrones and a hand-built mechanism that brings out a bottle of champagne and two crystal flutes.
It is fitted with a 6.75 liter V12 engine under the hood, which pumps out 453hp to match the Sweptail’s esteem.
The two-seater model features retro-fitted lines and ultra-modern interiors enhanced by the ebony Macassar and Paldao, with a blend of Dark Spice and Moccasin leather or seats, elbow pads and dashboard tops.
