Introduction

The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, a customized car built on an established platform, is evidence that style and quantity can coexist without competing with one another. The first of three models to be produced, this incredibly rare vehicle was intended to be a coach-built model. What is meant by that?

All shade of beauty

Boat Tail challenges the notion of what a motor car is. It is not just the method to reach a destination, but the destination itself. It is an ambition realised with a remarkable cohort of women and men who empowered the marque to create a concept of extraordinary scope.

From sublime masterpiece to clay model, Coachbuild’s manual procedures open up new design possibilities. A full-sized clay sculpture was hand-crafted until a pure form was found after the initial idea was written. Buks was made from a digital remastering. After that, aluminum sheets were pounded into a canvas and refined until the surface and lines were as clear as possible.

Rolls-Royce Boat Tail Price

According to reports as of 2023, the “Rolls-Royce Boat Tail,” which supposedly cost about $28 million, was the most expensive car in the world. The Bugatti La Voiture Noire, which sold for around $18.7 million after taxes, wasn’t far behind. These cars are more than just means of mobility; they are a union of exclusivity, engineering prowess, and artistry.

The Exotic Vehicle Has a Beautifully Detailed and Tailored Exterior

Caleidolegno Veneer, a gray and black material, is typically found inside Rolls Royce vehicles. The outside of the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is made of the same material. The veneer’s brushed stainless steel pinstripe trimmings and linear wood grain are adorned with open pores. Its 5.8-meter length highlights its distinctive nautical style. The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail design also has a continuous negative sculpture, an aligned A-pillar, and a wraparound windshield. The 1,813 new handmade parts of the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail Car, which total a staggering 20 years’ worth of labor hours, are made possible by all of these unique elements.
The boat Tail is built with class

In a lineup of automobiles, Rolls-Royce vehicles would inevitably stand out from the competition. The traditional pantheon grille serves as the model for their unmistakable appearance. Nonetheless, the Boat Tail’s disassembled pantheon grille softens the car’s overall appearance compared to the traditional formal style.

The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, which was designed by none other than Santiago Calatrava, features a deck that dramatically rises into the air, giving the impression of a sweeping butterfly. The custom deck has enough for additional opulent stuff like caviar and an envied champagne chest. Additionally, the deck adds some picnic seats and cocktail tables on both sides. The architect’s design for the back picnic area served as inspiration, and it was intended to serve as the owner’s gathering place. Rolls-Royce has incorporated an umbrella to defend against inclement weather, carrying on the tradition of adding parasols to its Ghost and Wraith vehicles.
