Rolls-Royce creates world’s most expensive car — the £20m Boat Tail with parasol


ROLLS-Royce has made the world’s most expensive car — the £20million Boat Tail complete with picnic table and parasol in the boot.

Built using the chassis and engine of a Phantom, the rest of the motor is bespoke to the customer’s specifications, including two fridges.

Each model will be heavily customised to the specifications of its buyer, and the first Boat Tail machine features an amazing rear deck with a cocktail table, chairs, two fridges and even a parasol extending from the rear.

The luxury car took four years of “mind boggling attention to detail” and collaboration with the client to create – even the exterior paint colour is bespoke, modelled on the client’s favourite colour.

Alex Innes, Rolls-Royce’s head of Coachbuild Design, told Autocar: “It’s something never seen on a motor car before, but it seemed a logical extension of our limousines that have umbrellas in their doors.

“This car is all about enjoying the high life, so we need to offer provision for if you’re under the midday sun.”

One reason for the steep price tag of the car is that it has been engineered and designed from the ground up as a one off.

The chassis, engine and underpinnings are based on the existing Phantom limo, but everything above that was designed and created from scratch.

Measuring just under 5.8 meters or 19 feet long, the new four-seater two-door Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is the first to be built by Rolls-Royce’s new Coachbuild department at the company’s boutique headquarters in Goodwood, Sussex.

The owners, who have asked Rolls Royce not to name them, are said to have “a sense of style and a love of travel, adventure, and entertaining who collect cars, watches, pens and fine champagnes and like sailing”.

The car is double the price of Rolls Royce’s previous most expensive car, 2017’s Sweptail that cost £10m.
