Rolls-Royce Boat Tail - An Experience That Costs Over 20 Million Dollars
In this world, there are things that an ordinary man can only dream of. One of them is the new Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, a convertible that costs nothing more and nothing less than 28 million dollars.
Three units were produced of this vehicle, all coachbuilt and with unique specifications. Three units for three customers, whose identity is unknown, who are the only three people who can boast of owning this car, since the company assured that it will no longer be manufactured.
Rolls-Royce Boat Tail Is The Destination Itself
"It exists far beyond a mere means of transport," says Alex Innes, head of Rolls-Royce Coachbuild design for Forbes, speaking about Rolls-Royce Boat Tail.
"The Boat Tail is not about reaching a destination," he added, "it is the destination itself."
In his turn, Rolls boss Torsten Müller-Ötvös has described the company’s coachbuilding efforts as "the haute couture of our industry."
Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is based on the Phantom Drophead, which has been discontinued since 2017. With it shares its aluminum platform and engine, a 6.75 V12 with 563hp/850Nm.
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is a convertible car whose (wooden) back simulates the stern of a yacht. This back opens to reveal a storage system for champagne, cold drinks, glasses, towels, dishes, and even caviar. On the sides, we have two cocktail tables and luxury stools.
The car, which has 1,813 parts made exclusively for it, has four seats, measures 5.8 meters, has a striking but at the same time quite minimalistic design, and the noblest materials: handcrafted aluminum body, stainless steel inlays, exclusive leather, and hand-painted details.
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail also includes a matching Bovet 1822 watch with a Montblanc pen and parasol.
