The luxury and expensive price tag car manufacturer Rolls-Royce has unveiled world’s most expensive Sweptail car at $13 million. The inspiration behind the Sweptail comes from Rolls-Royce classics from the 1920s and ’30s—and with sweeping lines and coach built quality, it recreates that ethos perfectly. This car proves that a manufacturer will build whatever you want, as long as you’ve got the cash.
In regards to price, it more than triples the price of the aforementioned Chiron. According to the Telegraph, the car totals up to £10 million, or about $12.8 million. Based on that, the Sweptail could officially become the most expensive new car ever sold from any era, even when adjusted for inflation.
Rolls-Royce gave a thorough backstory to the car’s creation and influences, saying – “The grandeur, scale, flamboyance and drama of the 1925 Phantom I Round Door built by Jonckheere; the svelte tapering glasshouse, dramatic dash to axle proportion and upsweep of the rear departure angle of the 1934 Phantom II Streamline Saloon by Park Ward; the elegantly falling waist-rail, swept tail coachwork of the 1934 Gurney Nutting Phantom II Two Door Light Saloon, and the flowing roofline, rising departure angle, and again the swept tail coachwork of the 1934 Park Ward 20/25 Limousine Coupé were all considered by today’s Rolls-Royce designers in the creation of this very distinctive motor car.“
