$13M Rolls-Royce Sweptail - The Most Expensive Car Ever Build

Rolls-Royce unveiled a one-off custom build called the Sweptail. At a reported price of nearly $13 million, it is believed to be the most expensive new car ever commissioned. We’ve included this car into our list Top 10 Most Expensive Cars in the World. Rolls Royce Sweptail – a bespoke one-off coupe built for one of Rolls Royce’s “most valued customers.” “Sweptail is the automotive equivalent of haute couture,” Giles Taylor, the director of design for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said in a statement. “It is a Rolls-Royce designed and hand-tailored to fit a specific customer.” According to Rolls, a customer approached the company in 2013 and asked it to build a one-of-a-kind motor car inspired by the luxury yachts of the 1920s and ’30s. The Sweptail’s signature feature is a single-piece glass roof that tapers into the car’s fastback rear end. It’s a design feature that dominates the car’s silhouette. The front grille of the unique motor car is also unique by itself and is the largest fitted to any modern-era Rolls Royce giving it a distinct look. It’s milled from a single piece of aluminum and hand-polished to give it a mirror shine. On the rear end is the “swept-tail” that gives the car its name. The coup de gras of the rear is the ultimate homage to the world of racing yachts that inspired the client, with its raked stern. The back seat is replaced with a wood mid-shelf that features an illuminated glass lip. Further back is the wood hat shelf, polished and inset with luggage rails and surrounded by a large teardrop-shaped glass roof that contributes to a very bright, airy cockpit. On the inside, the cabin is predictably wrapped in opulence. Rolls claims the car’s dash is the cleanest to date, with a clock made from the thinnest Macassar veneer and machined titanium hands. The center console also houses a mechanism that serves up a bottle of champagne and two crystal champagnes flutes. The Sweptail comes with its own set of luggage. Rolls-Royce has not released technical specs of the car, but it’s believed to be based on the current-generation Phantom platform, which means some version of the company’s 6.75-liter V-12 is most likely lurking under its long bonnet.

  1. That’s about as expensive as one F1 car, which those drivers just regularly wreck

    1. Its not even really as expensive as f1 car.. The f1 cars true prize is actually kept secret to avoid government taxation and unnecessary attraction and distraction.. It’s only the engine that’s about 13million or more

      1. Wrong. Dead wrong. You cannot hide the price / cost from The American Internal Revenue Service. Do you even try that would get you laughed out of court and straight into a jail cell. Anybody with common sense knows this, or anybody else that’s tried to hide the cost of anything.

        “ F1 has been using the same 1600cc V6 turbocharged engines (or Power Units) since 2014. These engines have been developed to maximise performance, the rules surrounding their technical specification have remained predominantly the same.
        Made up of six components, the PUs feature an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE)

        Turbocharger (TC), Motor Generator Unit-Kinetic (MGU-K), Motor Generator Unit-Heat (MGU-H), the Energy Store i.e. batteries (ES) and Control Electronics (CE).
        PS: “The regulations call for a customer to be supplied at €12m (£10.34m). The reality is that no one pays just this for their engines, because of all the other bits and pieces that come into it.

        “Customers are paying something in the region of €15m (£12.92m) for one engine.”
        Cost: $18.32m (£12.92m)
