We first saw the Rolls-Royce Sweptail at the 2018 Concours of Elegance, and wow, what a car. A future classic car for sure. The level of detail and craftmanship is exceptional. This car was first revealed on the shores of Lake Como in May 2017, Sweptail heralded a remarkable milestone for the iconic British marque Rolls-Royce. This most striking motorcar was commissioned by one of the world’s foremost exotic automobile collectors and made history in being the first in-house designed and fully coachbuilt Rolls-Royce in over half a century. It is also one of the very few two seater Rolls-Royces to have ever been created by the marque since its inception in 1904.
Sweptail’s wonderful sense of occasion, enhanced by the owner’s personal attention to detail, is perhaps best demonstrated by the secret “his and hers” attaché cases that deploy on command from the B pillars and to cap it all, a centre console that effortlessly deploys the owner’s favourite Dom Perignon vintage Champagne, chilled, along with two fine cut crystal flutes.
It supposedly cost £10 million, but only the owner and Rolls-Royce will know for sure. Here’s a video we came across with more detail. Enjoy.
