Rolls-Royce has unveiled the world’s most expensive car that costs around USD 28 million. The new custom-built Boat Tail leaves previous record-holders far behind. The previous costliest car was Bugatti Voiture Noire that was priced at USD 20.2 million. 2017 coachbuilt Sweptail Rolls-Royce too was on the top of the list with USD 14.2 million price tag. Apart from being the priciest new car, Boat Tail is just another example of true engineering wonder. This is because it has a rear deck that includes a picnic set. So it is not just something that your drive to the picnic destination, in fact, it is in itself a picnic destination.
The picnic set has designed in such a way that it just requires a touch of a button to get deployed. This may look unimaginable but it is something that Rolls-Royce took 4 years to develop. The car has been reportedly commissioned by power couple JAY-Z and Beyoncé. According to the company, there are several things that have been specially designed considering the preference of the client. However, the company has not directly named the couple. Rolls-Royce said that the colour of the car was chosen as blue because this is the favorite colour of the two patrons. The couple even shared their love for champagne how they like it to be served. The company in a release said that there a fridge has been incorporated in Boat Tail to so that champagne can be cooled down exactly to 6 degrees Celsius.
According to information shared by the carmaker, the couple is passionate about boats and has a deep love for blue colour. These tidbits have made people believe that the car has been commissioned by Beyoncé and Jay Z. Most importantly, the couple has a combined net worth of more than USD 1.9 billion. This makes Boat Tail car easily affordable for them. For the uninitiated, JAY-Z bought champagne brand Armand de Brignac in 2014. While he sold some of the value of the company this year, he still owns half the company. However, Rolls-Royce has not commented anything on it.
