Photos of the new Rolls-Royce Boat Tail convertible were published. It costs $28 million and is the most expensive new car in the world. The exclusive convertible will be presented during the retro show in the town of Villa d’Este on the shore of Italian Lake Como. Details about the model were disclosed on the official website of the British brand.
This is the second in a series of three Rolls-Royce Boat Tail. Since the cars are custom-built, they are somewhat different from each other. The owner of this convertible is kept secret, but it is known that the very first Boat Tail was created for Beyonce and JAY-Z.
The new Rolls-Royce Boat Tail features a special pearl finish with a cognac-colored hood and a coffee-colored fabric roof. Salon and trunk lid are trimmed with walnut and imitate the deck of a ship. In general, the name of the model is translated as “the stern of the boat” and it is positioned as a kind of land yacht.
The interior of the car is decorated with expensive Swiss watches, and the buttons are encrusted with pearls. Hidden in the trunk is a champagne cooler, as well as a picnic set with china plates and gilded cutlery. Special folding picnic chairs and a sun umbrella are also provided.
Technical “stuffing” is not so exclusive. The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail Cabriolet is based on the Phantom sedan and is equipped with a standard 6.75-liter V12 rated at 571 hp.
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is exactly the most expensive new car, but there are much more expensive cars among the retro cars. The other day, for example, a 1955 Mercedes-Benz sports car set a record – it went under the hammer for $142 million.
