So many times have we wished to be millionaires or even more to experience a super luxury lifestyle with one-of-a-kind items designed to our own imagination. However, while we are still daydreaming, someone has turned those imaginary stuff into real-life. And in this case, an anonymous millionaire has ordered Rolls Royce to build his own coupe with $13 million (N5.1 billlion), setting a new record for the most expensive car in the world.

“Sweptail” is the chosen name for this special car, announced in the annual Italian event Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. According to a published work by the company, Sweptail’s owner is a well-off man self-claimed a “connoisseur and collector of distinctive, one-off items including super-yachts and private aircraft.” To add more in his “modest” collection, 5 years ago, he came to Rolls-Royce to request a custom-built car for his own. And Rolls-Royce did agree with a reasonable price.
Featuring the swept tail design for rear ends in the beginning of the 20th century, which boosted Phantoms to worldwide fame, the millionaire’s Sweptail collects quite much of those iconic models. Specifically, one can easily recognize the typical round door of Phantom 1925, the silhouette of Phantom II Streamline Saloon in 1934 and of course the swept tail style from Gurney Nutting Phantom II in the same year.

Having done with nostalgic components, the modern Sweptail somehow bears the futuristic look of 21st century with panoramic glass roof. This design allows Rolls-Royce drivers to watch “the world slip by” and immerse themselves in “part of that passing landscape” while still “detached from the outside…in a cocoon luxury.”
What about the interiors? Wood of Macassar Ebony and Paldao are definitely in the list for inside materials. Machined titanium in the analog clock, a champagne cooler, 2 crystal flutes, a hat shelf with a couple of carbon fiber attache cases for laptops are all that one can dream of a utility cabin.
Some final words to share, keep dreaming and earning more money till your car gets a customized champagne chiller for $13 million. Otherwise, you may enroll in a mechanics course and design one for your own!
Now it’s time to have a gaze at the beauty of the most expensive car in the world!
