2017 Rolls-Royce Sweptail

In 2013, one of Rolls-Royce's customers approached them with the idea for a one-off fastback 2-seater based on designs of coachbuilt Rolls-Royces from the 1920s and 1930s.

The massive front grille is the largest of any contemporary Rolls-Royce, and is milled from solid aluminum. The most defining aspect of the car however is the sloping boat tail roofline reminiscent of the 1963-1967 Chevrolet Corvette and the 1971-1973 Buick Riviera. The Rolls-Royce design is more daring with a panoramic glass roof going up the entire length.

The naturally lit interior has a design reminiscent of high-end boats. Large amounts of finely polished Macassar Ebony and Paldao wood correspond with light Moccassin and Dark Spice leathers. One interesting feature are hidden panniers behind the opening of the coach doors that when activated slide forward to present the owner's attache case. This leather-wrapped carbon fiber case matches the interior and a full set of luggage developed by Rolls-Royce Bespoke for the car.

The center console utilizes a one-of-a-kind handbuilt mechanism that presents a bottle of champagne and two crystal champagne flutes at the touch of a button.
