Rolls-Royce Sweptail Coupe

Cars like the Rolls Royce Sweptail Coupe inspire one of two things in a person; utter disgust at the fact someone was willing to pay that much for a car, or a total admiration of the craftsmanship and attention to detail involved in its making. We count ourselves in the latter category.

This vehicle, originally commissioned four years ago in 2013, was inspired in large part by both the vehicles of the early 20th century and by contemporary and classic yachts. The nautical half of the influence is most pronounced towards the back of the vehicle. It is here that the car sweeps together to a fine point, much like on the aft of a ship. To top it off, a panoramic domed glass roof lets light pour on to the interior wood deck of the vehicle where the rear seats would usually be. How much did this ‘connoisseur and collector of distinctive one-off items including super-yachts and private aircraft’ pay for such a luxury? According to the Telegraph, $12.8 million. If true, that would make it the most expensive car ever sold.
