Rolls Royce Sweptail – A Complete One-Off Bespoke Rolls Royce
Say hello to the Rolls Royce Sweptail – a one-off bespoke car, built for one of the most valued customers.
The customer who commissioned the exclusive car wanted the vehicle’s swept tail rear end to echo classic 1920s and 1930s Rolls’. Rolls Royce described the car in possibly the most flamboyant description a motor vehicle has been given.
At the front, the face of the car remains strongly Phantom influenced, using Rolls’ contemporary, brutally square design language. The large grille is the biggest fitted to any ‘modern era’ Rolls-Royce and was milled from solid aluminium before being polished by hand.
Things are clearly radically different to any Rolls-Royce compared to the Rolls Royce Sweptail. The rear tapers into a sharp point and is said to be the “ultimate homage to the world of racing yachts” – another key design influence of the Sweptail.
Only two seats appear inside, with the rear bench making way for a hat shelf in a nod to Rolls-Royce GT cars from the 1920s and 30s. You may also have picked up on the “08” numbers engraved at the front and rear – these are milled from aluminium ingots and serve as identification and registration marks.
Two concealed panniers in the outboard walls of the car behind the doors hold the owner’s bespoke attaché cases holding his personal laptops.
Rolls-Royce said: ‘The cases themselves have been hand-constructed from lightweight carbon fibre, wrapped in the finest leather that matches the interior of “Sweptail” and detailed with machined aluminium and titanium clasps and locks’.
‘These attaché cases are twinned with the full set of luggage, also developed by Rolls-Royce Bespoke for “Sweptail”, which sits in the car’s wood-clad boot.’
Rolls-Royce spent four years with the new owner who commissioned the car, which is powered by an effortless 6.75-litre V12 engine.
