Every unveiling of a new Rolls-Royce car comes with a lot of buzz, but it’s difficult to remember a model that shook the world as much as Sweptail. Designed for a mysterious millionaire who was described as one of the company’s “most valued customers”, this impressive vehicle is a perfect combination of pure power and impeccable elegance – and it comes with a $13.000.000 price tag!
The anonymous client commissioned a Rolls-Royce inspired by the cars of the “golden era”, with a large panoramic glass roof, a champagne chiller in the center console, a special compartment for his briefcase, and a shelf for his hat. Despite possessing larger grille than other modern Rolls-Royce models, Sweptail only comes with two seats – the rest of the space is occupied by exotic wood interior, creating an illusion you’re seating on a private yacht.
Numerous historic models from 1920s and 1930s served as muses for crafting this magnificent creation, which was described as “the automotive equivalent of Haute Couture” by the company’s director of design Giles Taylor.
“It is a Rolls-Royce designed and hand-tailored to fit a specific customer. This customer came to the House of Rolls-Royce with an idea, shared in the creative process where we advised him on his cloth, and then we tailored that cloth to him. You might say we cut the cloth for the suit of clothes that he will be judged by,” explained Taylor.
