Rolls-Royce is known for its luxury vehicles which speak of class and status. Normally, the cars are known to be quite Expensive. However, a new car designed by the company has created history as being the most expensive new car in history.

The vehicle is named Sweptail and is a one-off car, which was designed and created by the company under the commission of an anonymous client. The car was bought by this individual at a whopping $12.8 million. The car was reportedly being built since 2013 and was revealed at the Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza in Italy.

The super expensive new car

Every part of the vehicle has been designed specifically for the unnamed client. The team of designers took inspiration from several vehicles in the 1920s and 1930s while determining the outer look of the vehicle. However, the Sweptail is fitted with all the modern amenities inside.

The vehicle is equipped with 1925 Phantom I Round Door sides. The exclusive vehicle also boasts the rear of the 1934 Phantom Ii Streamline Saloon rear. The customized Rolls-Royce car also touts aspects from the 1934 Gurney Nutting Phantom II and the coachwork of the 1934 Park Ward 20/25 Limousine Coupé. Its body has been hand polished and the luxury car is also fitted with a panoramic glass roof.

This makes the Sweptail one of the most complex designs for a modern car.

The anonymous owner has been described as an enthusiast of vehicles with possessions such as a private airplane and super yachts. The carmaker said that the owner’s commission was undertaken because of the fact that he was understandable and sustainable enough to know that the design and creation would take time.

Interiors of the Sweptail

The glass roof which is framed on all sides by polished aluminum allows the bespoke car's cabin to be filled with natural light. Generous quantities of Macassar Ebony and Paldao are found inside the customized vehicle. This choice of dark and light Ebony is set off by contrasting dark spice and light moccasin leathers that adorn the seats, armrests and dashboard top of the Rolls-Royce car.

Behind the two coach doors are housed identical panniers which are a feature specifically requested by the client. When deployed these panniers open and reveal an attaché case, which affords a space for the owner to place his laptops in. Apart from this, the central console now houses a mechanism, which at the press of a button allows the owner to access a bottle of chilled champagne, along with two flute glasses. This platform for the champagne in the Rolls-Royce car has been designed in such a way that the owner can pick up the bottle easily.
