It was at the flamboyant Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este that the British firm Rolls-Royce presented, on May 29 and for the first time, what is possibly the most expensive commercial car in the world ever made: the Rolls-Royce Sweptail . The portentous and elegant machine was born from a personal order in 2013 and, therefore, there is no other equal in the world.
Inspired by the classic bodies of the 20s and nautical design, the client in question has customized the vehicle to the point of merging their two passions (collector of airplanes and super ryates) into a single two-seater machine.
If we look at it from the back, we will have the feeling of being in front of a sports yacht. He lowered the hood, the most expensive car in the world has 460 horses that power the machine, matching the Sweptail with the most powerful sports cars of the moment.
Personalization adds and continues. A panoramic glass roof, considered the largest ever built for a car , discovers an interior flooded with natural light in which are concealed (on the outside walls of each side of the car) two identical suitcases that unfold to show a briefcase tailored for the laptop.
Everything is related, as the Rolls-Royce includes a complete set of luggage incorporated in the trunk , dressed in wood and with polished aluminum rails. And as not everything will be driving, for those moments of stillness and pleasure, simply by pressing “the button”, a system will be deployed equipped with a bottle of champagne and two glasses of glass.
“Sweptail is the automotive equivalent of haute couture, it is a Rolls-Royce designed and crafted to suit a specific customer.This customer came to the house of Rolls-Royce with an idea, shared in the creative process we advise and then we adapt, “said Rolls-Royce design director Giles Taylor at the presentation of the car.
The esquisitez is also reflected in the texture of the Rolls-Royce Sweptail, the most expensive car in the world . The seat of the Sweptail and the dashboard are made of dark spice leather and moccasin. All this amalgam of machinery and design has, at last, known price; the British company has revealed the figure and is to prepare: eleven million and a half euros.
This vehicle joins the list of the most expensive cars in the world, among which are models such as Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (2 million euros), The Ferrari 599 XX , sold for 1.5 million, the Henessey Venom GT of 1.4 million, the Zenvo ST1 , valued at 1.3 million, the Koenisgssegg Agera R , of another 1.3 million, or the Maybach Landaulet , sold for 1 million euros.
