Rolls-Royce Sweptail: the most expensive car in the world

By order of a customer whose name is kept secret, Rolls-Royce made an extravagant Sweptail coupe. The British say that in 2013 they were approached by a great connoisseur of exclusive cars, yachts and aircraft, announcing their intention to acquire Rolls-Royce. And, of course, not some consumer goods there, which can easily be found on the street, but made specifically for him, the one and only.

Moreover, the car must certainly be inspired by the classic brand models of the 1920s and 1930s. Of course, the mysterious client had a very, very much money, which he would not mind spending on a new toy, so the British gladly got to work. The basis was the chic Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe with a 6.75-liter V12 engine.

After three years of hard work, Rolls-Royce finally showed the result. The British boasted that the 1925 Phantom I Round Door, 1934 Phantom II Streamline Saloon, 1934 Gurney Nutting Phantom II Two Door Light Saloon 1934, and 1934 Park Ward 20/25 Limousine Coupe influenced the design of this epic coupe with an elongated rear. .

Only two chairs remained inside, and a fridge for champagne and two glasses appeared in the center console. The cost of an exclusive car was more than 10 million pounds, or a little less than 13 million dollars at the current rate. And this is an absolute record among any new cars, because even the Bugatti Chiron hypercar costs four times cheaper! It is unfortunate that we are unlikely to ever see Sweptail in the streets.
