Look! Rolls-Royce launches its most expensive car to date—the Boat Tail

The rear deck ingenuity of this four-seater luxury car is an ambitious concept that was never seen before in the automotive business.

It is aptly named Boat Tail due to its distinguishable rear. At a press of a button, the deck opens in an extendable umbrella-like gesture, offering its own cocktail table on one side, and a dining side table on the other.

One side provisioned for dining; one side provisioned for drink.

This car is unique in its own right, having surpassed its predecessor Sweptail in terms of price and modification. The latter was worth 12.8 million US dollars when it launched in 2017, which made it the most expensive Rolls-Royce back then.

The Boat Tail has 1,813 parts and 15 bespoke ones. It kept the same firepower of Rolls-Royce Phantom, which has a 563-hp twin-turbo V12 engine.

Its roof is completely removable rather than simply being convertible.

The rear is not the only thing that’s interesting about this automobile. The interior dashboard is also worth mentioning because of its two tourbillon Bovet 1822 timepiece mounted on the front. Its roof is completely removable rather than simply being convertible. And it’s a vision in oceanic blue, infused with shimmering crystals. Its nautical design draws inspiration from a J-Class racing yacht.

The Boat Tail is extremely rare. Rolls-Royce has in fact only built three units so far. Its price is estimated at 28 million US dollars, reportedly making it one of the world’s most expensive cars to date.
