Rolls-Royce, which is currently one of the most prestigious brands in the world, and the Sweptail, once the most expensive model in the world… Let’s take a look at the features of this vehicle, which cost 13 million dollars.
When you become one of the most prestigious car brands in the world, it may become a requirement for you to make a difference with your newly released models and cases. Working to make every model and every case look more impressive than the previous one and of course have higher performance. Rolls-Royce, Sweptail The model has exceededly fulfilled all of these requirements.
This model took 4 years to complete. it is completely shaped according to the future owner of the car that ordered it. For Rolls-Royce, which is used to making personalized models, 4 years is a long time to produce a car. Of course, there are reasons why Sweptail, which cost $13 million, took so long to complete. Let’s take a look at these reasons together.
Rolls-Royce Sweptail features:
First of all, the Sweptail has a very different structure from previous Rolls-Royce models. However, it still preserved the spirit of the classic Rolls-Royce. It may be inappropriate to explain why a $13 million car is so special. However, even if you look at the car from the corner of your eye, you can see the labor on it.
In other words, it would be unfair to criticize such a meticulously built car only for its price.
The new Rolls-Royce differs significantly from the Phantom Coupe, the front of which most closely resembles the Sweptail. On the Phantom, the headlights are rectangular, while on the Sweptail the headlights are round. Also, since the Sweptail’s grille doesn’t have anything like the Phantom around it, it adds a much cleaner look to the car.
08 car identifier and registration number located in front of the vehicle and just below the grille. The number that adds a completely different prestige to Sweptail is also found in other parts of the vehicle. Its structure, reminiscent of a hard face, ensured that the vehicle did not stray from the spirit of Rolls-Royce.
Rear panel designed in a nautical spirit
The most important and distinctive feature of the Sweptail is undoubtedly the rear of the vehicle. While the steep and imposing shoulder lines are a characteristic feature of Rolls-Royce, in Sweptail, instead of these lines, lines that we have not seen before in any model of almost any car brand are highlighted. It’s a brave move for such an innovation to come from Rolls-Royce, a car company that adheres to its lines.
The full effect of the lines and design can be seen from the rear of the vehicle, where the roofline is dramatically tapered as it approaches the rear, where the two sides are pulled together and finally meet at the tip of the trunk. Sweptail’s nautical spirit is reflected in the lines on the rear of the vehicle, which takes its design inspiration from the nautical industry. Again, the 08 text, which is only a feature of Sweptail, appears here as well.
Completely Custom Interior Design
As the lines on the outside of the vehicle changed, the interior had to be changed as well. custom made The changes made in the interior of this car were also requested by the owner of the car. Thus, it has been completely removed from the rear of the vehicle and replaced with a wooden cabinet and luggage rails illuminated by the windows outside the vehicle.
Balanced Macassar Ebony, one of the world’s most luxurious and popular wood veneers, and open-pore Paldao are used in the interior design of the vehicle. These two very valuable wood trims are further highlighted by Moccasin and Dark Spice leathers covering the seats, armrests and part of the instrument panel.
None of these materials have been used in any Rolls-Royce vehicle before. -even as customization- not seen. Among the reasons why the vehicle is worth 13 million dollars, the use of materials that have not been used in any vehicle before can be written.
Rolls-Royce says the car’s gauges are the cleanest and most accurate gauges ever built, showing only one control on the dashboard, other buttons and switches. “secretly repositioned” made the statement. Unfortunately, it is not possible to see these changes in the photos. The use of titanium in the watch and watch hands included in its interior has made the vehicle unique.
Inside, there are other features besides the materials used. The first of these features is a handmade mechanism in the center console that holds a bottle of champagne and two glasses. Also, Sweptail’s owner is on both sides of his vehicle. with the help of the panels added to the outer walls made it possible to access a pair of handmade briefcases that were part of the luggage set at the push of a button.
As beautiful as it is fast
The Sweptail is a very powerful car, apart from its appearance and the quality of the materials used; 6,75-liter twin-turbo W-12 engine with 453 horsepower owner. In fact, it is not much different from other Rolls-Royce models. But still, this is an impressive engine specification compared to standard vehicles. This 13 million dollar vehicle can accelerate to 100 kilometers in just 6 seconds. Since the purpose of this vehicle, which has a maximum speed of 250 kilometers, is not speed, it does not make much difference. The reason why such a heavy vehicle can travel at a speed of 250 kilometers is undoubtedly the twin-turbo W-12 engine.
With such many and distinctive features, it is a car that took the title of Rolls-Royce Sweptail’s most expensive car in the world for a while. Rolls-Royce, which left behind all the vehicles it made in its long and glorious career with the Sweptail, has also shown us that vehicles are not designed in its own lines by simply sticking to the past.
