If you can afford it, Rolls Royce can build you anything with every detail included as per your preference. The Sweptail model, for instance, took four years from inception to finish. It was first unveiled at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, and it is a one-off commission created for a client with specific and exclusive tastes, which is why it is off the markets.
The car emulates the style and designing cues from luxurious super-yachts while drawing inspiration from Rolls Royce classic models. It is equipped with a custom coachwork, accommodates only two people, has a panoramic roof that tapers down like that of a yacht, and the interior is handcrafted with wood and leather. It also comes with cases for holding laptops on each door. Well, drinking and driving in this one-of-a-kind model seems enjoyable across the world.
