The latest Boat Tail has been exclusively hand-made and gets a design specially commissioned by the buyer, who Rolls Royce claims, hails from a family with origins in the pearl industry as a homage to his father.

The second Boat Tail receives an exterior colour which is a blend of “oyster and soft rose” according to Rolls Royce. The bonnet is meanwhile finished in an exclusive “Cognac” colour with bronze and aluminium mica flakes, as well as a crystalised and ice matt coating. At the rear, a ” butterfly design wooden deck” has been added which houses a hosting suite as Rolls likes to call it and is finished in Royal Walnut wood. At the front, the Pantheon grille is milled from a single billet of aluminium and features a Spirit of Ecstasy in Rose Gold.

As we move inside, we see that the interior has a two-tone theme going on with a mix of cognac and oyster coloured leather all throughout. “Royal Walnut” veneered wood panels are used inside on the transmission tunnel as well as other places which, Rolls Royce claims will age eventually into the matching cognac colour of the bonnet. There are also rose gold and mother-of-pearl accents across the interior.

This example of the Rolls Royce Boat Tail will be publicly unveiled at  Concorso d’Eleganza, Villa d’Este on 21 May 2022, an event which happens on the shores of Lake Como in Italy. The first example of the Boat Tail was also unveiled at this event in October last year and was rumoured to have costed around £20 Million or INR 200 crore which would have made it the most expensive Rolls Royce ever made beating the Sweptail.
