A ONE-of-a-kind Rolls Royce has been unveiled at a price point of £20MILLION making it one of the most expensive cars in the world.
The second bespoke car in Rolls Royce’s Boat Tail trio has been released after being commissioned by a family who made their fortunes in the pearl trade.
The one of a kind luxury convertible grand tourer has a gorgeous pearlescent exterior finish – and costs a cool £20million.
Inside, its detail has been inspired by mother-of-pearl, which is a nod to the commissioners of the luxurious motor.
In the back of the hand-crafted vehicle, there is a “hosting suite” with a dining set, drinks chiller and food heater.
And on a sunny day, the driver of the two-door four-seater can also extend a table and open up a parasol – which are all hidden under a pair of butterfly doors.
Rose gold-plated tableware and a cutlery set made by Christofle of Paris come with the car – and the lucky driver can use them alfresco once you pull over for a picnic.
The elegant Rolls Royce also has a dashboard clock made from mother-of-pearl and a host of luxurious gadgets hiding within.
Inside, the iridescent material is also used on the control switches and dials “creating a strong visual and material connection between the car, the owner, and his family heritage.”
Oyster-coloured leathers and soft rose accents complement the opulent car – which changes colour subtly under different light.
And the transmission tunnel is formed from Royal Walnut veneer – with rose gold pinstripes, to add to the stunning opulence.
The manufacturers, based in Goodwood in Sussex, declined to name the client that the world’s most expensive car was created for.
But Rolls Royce said the new Boat Tail had been created by its bespoke Coachbuild arm for him, “in homage to his father and family heritage.”
Keen motors fans can see the beauty unveiled unveiling at Concorso d’Eleganza event at the Villa d’Este in Lake Como, Northern Italy, on Saturday.
Rolls-Royce said: “It was commissioned by a patron whose family business has grown from his father’s origins in the pearling industry.
“Widely travelled, internationally educated and cosmopolitan in his tastes and influences, the client is an established patron of the arts, who additionally owns a sizeable collection of classic and modern cars, housed in a dedicated private museum.”
The stunning exclusive motor uses four specially chosen pearl shells and mother of pearl highlights as the basis of its colour scheme.
More than meets the eye, the flamboyant Boat Tail can drive from rest to 62mph in about five seconds.
Rolls Royce added: “Although the trio of Boat Tails share a common body style, each are imbued with the unique, highly personal imprint of the commissioning patron, thereby telling differing stories.”
