The bonnet of the Boat Tail is finished in Cognac, with rose gold sills.
The second of only three ultra-limited Rolls-Royce Boat Tail models – each worth around £20 million (over Rs 200 crore) – has been revealed ahead of its debut at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este this weekend.
- Wooden deck in the rear conceals a bespoke hosting suite
- Dash, armrests and seats have a pearlescent finish
- Will make its public debut on May 21
A design commissioned by a customer whose family owns a pearl business is featured on the hand-built model. The Boat Tail, according to Rolls-Royce, is a color blend of “oyster and soft rose,” with a pearlescent finish that changes depending on the light.
The bonnet, which is finished in a “cognac color,” has bronze and aluminum mica flakes, as well as a crystalized and ice matt coating, and was designed specifically for the model. Meanwhile, the sills are rose gold in color.
A wooden deck has been added to the back of the car, concealing a bespoke “hosting suite,” complete with an umbrella and a unique “butterfly design” dining set.
The interior is finished in walnut-colored leather with rose gold accents and a walnut veneer. The leather on the dashboard, armrests, center console, and seats has a pearlescent finish, according to Rolls-Royce.
Walnut was chosen, according to the company, because it “matures over time” and will eventually resemble the cognac-colored bonnet.
Meanwhile, the transmission tunnel is made of walnut veneer and has gold pinstripes to match the rear deck. On the dashboard is a bespoke pearl-colored timepiece.
“Every Rolls-Royce Coachbuild commission is, of course, incredibly special, but there was an additional depth of feeling in this case,” said Alex Innes, Rolls-head Royce’s of Coachbuild design.
On May 21, an example of the Boat Tail will make its public debut at the Concorso d’Eleganza on the Italian shores of Lake Como.

Last year, the previous Rolls-Royce Boat Tail model was also unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, though that event was in October.
With a rumoured price of around £20 million (over Rs 200 crore), the previous car was the most expensive Rolls-Royce ever built, and nearly double the price of the Rolls-Royce Sweptail. The price of this newly revealed car has yet to be determined by the company.
