The most expensive car in the world until today is the Sweptail by Rolls Royce. The car was shown recently at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este, Italy. Sweptail costs around 10 million pounds or $13 million because it is hand-built and is based on the design of Rolls Royce of the 1920s and 30s.
Sweptail is the first modern coachbuilder that has redefined luxury and has been taken to a totally different level. It was made for one gentleman, yet the company refuses to unveil the name of the owner. Only one such car has been made so far.
When questioned about the idea and design, Rolls Royce said that the idea began with a single line on paper. The company also said that the owner is a connoisseur of private aircraft and super-yachts. The owner himself had asked the company workers to design a car which is just a two-seater coupe and also features a large panoramic glass roof. It was his idea of a complete luxury car. Today, this car is the most expensive car in the world.
This Sweptail car is an addition of a 103EX Concept. It is a personalized, futuristic car that will be made by Rolls Royce in the coming years. Furthermore, it was unveiled in their Vision Next 100. It has the largest aluminum grille which is handed polished to get a mirror finish. The signature ornament of Rolls Royce ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ is also larger than in the other cars. The Sweptail gets a giant 6.6-liter V12 engine and a length of over 6 meters.
The interiors are made from Paldao veneers and Macassar Ebony. The leather seats are in a hue of Moccasin and Dark Spice. The steering wheel is hand-stitched. It is so unique that it can catch anyone’s fancy. There is a hand-stitched steering wheel. Without a doubt, this car is the haute couture of automobiles.
A wooden shelf is placed in the center. Moreover, there is no rear seat. The cart has an illuminated glass roof. Behind the shelf, there are polished luggage rails. A huge teardrop-shaped glass roof surrounds it.
Only a few cars every year make the top 10 list. These cars are bespoke automotive luxuries because the customers request for them. First, they have all the features the owner desires and second, there are hardly one or two of such cars made in the world. Their resale price is often double than their original price as many people are always competing owning such classics. The price doubles up at auctions. Rolls Royce Sweptail is the most expensive car in the world. It is the proud automobile of an owner who also has a passion for collecting unique yachts and private airplanes.
