Money can buy anything! Well almost anything when it comes to materialistic pleasures and what better example than the one-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail, that cost a jaw-dropping $12.8 million. Yes, you read that right! Don’t rub your eyes in disbelief. The bespoke Rolls-Royce Sweptail is a one-off car that has been crafted for a stinking-rich client (more along the lines of Uncle Scrooge who takes a daily money swim). Taking the internet by storm, here is all you want to know about this one-off, Rs 84 crore Rolls Royce Sweptail.
When you have abundant money even the super-luxurious car marque like Rolls-Royce give you options for customizations. The bespoke Sweptail was revealed at the Concorso d’Eleganzaza at Villa d’Este on May 27th, 2017 and since then it has been breaking the internet.
The owner of the Sweptail, as described by Rolls-Royce is a ‘connoisseur’ who has a treasure of several one-off items including private aircrafts and ultra-luxurious yachts.
Taking inspiration from the coach-built two-seater Rolls-Royce from the early 1920s and 1930s, it took four years to build the Sweptail, which is primarily a modern rendition of the vintage Rolls-Royce models.
The round door on the car has been inspired by the 1925 Phantom I Round Door. Other elements, like the dash, rear and the tapering glasswork remind of Phantom II Streamline Saloon from 1934. While the panoramic roof has been crafted along the lines of luxurious yacht.
Up front, it gets the Pantheon resembling aluminium grille. Along with the massive grille, the coupe gets a unique registration number, ‘08’. With these carefully crafted details, the Sweptail is one of its kind of Rolls-Royce, built ever.
The bespoke interior sports polished Macassar Ebony and open-pore Paldao. While the seats, armrests and dashboard are wrapped with Moccasin and Dark Spice leathers. Rear seats have been replaced by an expanse wood accompanied by an illuminated glass lip.
Another exquisite bit on the Sweptail is the hand-made clock that features titanium hands and Mazassar veneer. In addition, it also gets the handmade panniers and bespoke options for the luggage.
This isn’t the first time Rolls-Royce has built a custom car, but what makes it special is the high-level of luxury customization. Another interesting fact is that it is probably the most expensive car ever built carrying a price tag of $12.8 million that translates to a whopping Rs 84 crore.
