The second of the three units of the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail was the absolute star of the 2022 Concorso d’Eleganza at the Villa d’Estaing last weekend, drawing the attention of visitors. In addition to a gallery with live photos of a very expensive envelope car, a video uploaded to YouTube Mike’s car gives us a behind-the-scenes view of the nerve-wracking process of transporting it on and off the exhibition ramp.
Rumor has it that it will cost about $ 28 million, and driving a unique handmade car seems to be the dream of many gas station owners. However, taking responsibility for driving it through narrow spaces is not the most relaxing scenario. The professional driver who took him to the Rolls-Royce stand looked very cool and confident with the help of his colleagues who guided him in difficult places.

Don’t get me wrong, the road from the garage to the exhibition stand is not difficult for an ordinary driver. However, if we drive this large landscape yacht with aluminum body panels and a special paint inspired by the mother of pearl, I’m sure we won’t feel that way. The latter seems to change depending on the lighting conditions, and appears brighter in the sun than in the press.
As a witness to the countless hours spent on the creation of the boat’s tail, we must all agree that the overall description looks perfect in the live shootings of the BMW group. Decorated with Royal Walnut veneer, the interior of this example screams serenity in combination with the delicious accents of cognac / oyster skin and rose gold. Rolls-Royce designers and engineers also believe that the owner will be very pleased that the mother of pearl material is integrated into a cluster of instruments, switching devices and watches. After all, it came from his personal collection of pearls.
Another interesting feature of the boat’s tail shown in the video is that it can be carried with the back deck open, so you can show your wealth to observers using special cutlery, usually hidden under a beautiful Royal Walnut veneer. From the outside, the Rolls-Royce stand should be the most expensive bar / restaurant in the area, with carbon fiber stools under the umbrella left empty for most of the event.
A similar installation can be found on the tail of the first boat, so we think that the owners can arrange a meeting room for four people. Unfortunately, the third model remains closed after the owner’s request. It would be great to put all three Rolls-Royce Boat Tails in one place for a photo shoot, but that sounds unlikely. If you are interested, the purchase of a custom trio will cost at least $ 84 million.
