The latest ultra-limited Rolls Royce Boat Tail model – the second in a series of just three cars worth around £20million each – has been unveiled ahead of its appearance at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este this week-end.
The handcrafted model features a design commissioned by a customer whose family business originated in the pearling industry. The company says the car “creates a very personal and emotionally resonant tribute to the customer’s father”.
Rolls-Royce also says the Boat Tail has a mix of “oyster and soft pink” colors, with a pearlescent finish that changes under different lighting conditions.
The hood, finished in a “cognac color”, was designed specifically for the model and features bronze and aluminum mica flakes, as well as a crystallized and matte glazed coating. The sills, meanwhile, are rose gold.
A wooden deck was added to the rear of the car, concealing a bespoke “lodging suite”, complete with a unique “butterfly design” dining set and umbrella.
Walnut-colored leather appears throughout the interior, which has rose gold accents and walnut veneer. Rolls-Royce says the leather materials in the dashboard, armrests, center console and seats use a pearlescent finish.
The firm says walnut was chosen because it “matures over time” and will eventually resemble the cognac-colored hood.
The transmission tunnel, meanwhile, is in walnut veneer, with gold stripes to match the rear deck. A bespoke pearl-colored timepiece sits atop the dash.
Alex Innes, Head of Coachbuild Design at Rolls-Royce, said: “Each Rolls-Royce Coachbuild commission is, of course, incredibly special, but in this case there was an added depth of feeling.
