Rolls-Royce sniffs Bugatti for the title of “World’s Most Expensive Car”.
Bugatti thought enough that they would be allowed to win the title The world’s most expensive car when they developed an extended special model of Chiron called Bugatti The Black Car with a price tag of just under SEK 130 million, but British Rolls-Royce (now owned by BMW) really hits the French.
Rolls-Royce Boat Tail costs 28 million US dollars, corresponding to just over 231 million kronor.
Do you want to charge hysterically a lot for a car, it is not a dozen cars. That is why Rolls-Royce is only produced in a quarter dozen, ie in three copies.
– For us, this is the crown of the work and therefore they must be super unusual. We are not at all tempted to do more, because it would only have devalued the value, Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös explains to Automotive News.
Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is inspired by Rolls-Royce Sweeptail presented in 2017. Boat Tail has the same 6.75-liter V12 as the Phantom and Ghost, but has 1,800 unique components. The cars are built by hand. Customers have been involved in the project.
– We have a lot of clients who want to create something unique. It is not us who propose ideas that customers then buy, but customers tell us what type of body they want and then we build it by hand, says Torsten Müller.
Because the cars are built according to customers’ wishes, the three copies of Rolls-Royce Boat Tail differ from each other. In the future, it may also be relevant with specially built engines.
Rolls-Royce is already up and running with the planning of the next special model, but the CEO does not want to tell who the customers are or anything about what that model will look like.
