Jay-Z and Beyoncé Reportedly Owners of the Staggering Rolls-Royce ‘Boat Tail’

Rolls-Royce’s utterly unique coachbuilt ‘Boat Tail’ was reportedly designed at the behest of music royalty Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

The report comes from the UK’s Daily Telegraph who put a £20 million (A$36.8 million) price tag on the absolutely jaw-dropping vehicle, believed to be the most expensive new car of all time.

The nautical-themed convertible is driven by a 6.75-litre V-12, seats four, and comes with a retractable carbon-fibre top that lets it turn into a stylish coupé. It is inspired by the $13 million (A$17 million) Rolls-Royce Sweptail and measures 19 feet from bumper to bumper.

The twin side-opening compartments at the back, which store a champagne cooler, a Christofle picnic set, cocktail tables, matching chairs, and a full-sized parasol is the central focus point of this car.

This car should mark a sense of occasion and serve that occasion like nothing else” was the brief, and it seems the rear profile fits the bill and then some.

Rolls-Royce actually built three Boat Tail cars for three different consumers. As discussed with the trio of clients, it was decided that the three vehicles would have a common body, but each would be independently, highly personalised. The Jay-Z and Beyoncé bespoke design is the first of three to be announced to the public.

Significant engineering obstacles were solved in the creation of Rolls-Royce Boat Tail in order to meet the customer’s ambitions. In fact, 1813 entirely new components were developed just for the cars. 

“Rolls-Royce Boat Tail challenges the notion of what a motor car is and creates a new definition of what a motor car means,” Rolls Royce chief executive Torsten Müller-Ötvös said.

“Boat Tail exists far beyond a mere means of transport. It is not just the method to reach a destination, but the destination itself. It is an ambition realised with a remarkable cohort of women and men who empowered the marque to create a concept of extraordinary scope.

“Boat Tail is unprecedented. Boat Tail is a distinct counterpoint to industrialised luxury,” he added poetically.
