Rolls Royce has applied the full extent of its coach-building cunning to create a spectacular one-off coupe, inspired by custom Rolls from the ’20s and ’30s. A commission from one of the company’s most valued customers — “a connoisseur and collector of distinctive, one-off items including super-yachts and private aircraft”, the Sweptail is estimated to cost in excess of $12,000,000. The first item of note? The massive Pantheon grille, which is milled from aluminum then hand-polished to achieve a mirror finish. A brushed aluminum frame cocoons the rest of the front-end, flowing into an all-glass roof that tapers into a “bullet-tip” that ends at the car’s single rear brake light. The interior is lined with Macassar Ebony and open-pore Paldao woods, along with the requisite Champagne ejection system that distributes a chilled bottle at just the right angle for instant passenger refreshment. (Brogue advocates the 2004 Dom Pérignon. You’re welcome.)
