You remember the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail – the ultra-exclusive private order that came with a champagne fridge, his and hers watches and a supposed price tag of US$28 million ($38.4 million). Singapore dollars)?

Well, here is the second piece ordered in this luxurious series of three, which recalls the brand’s roots in bodywork.

Unveiled by Rolls-Royce Coachbuild Design at the Concorso d’Eleganza vintage car event, Villa d’Este, the automobile’s bespoke livery offers only the faintest clue to its underground patron, including the family business grew out of her father’s involvement in the pearling industry.

Handcrafted at Rolls-Royce headquarters in Goodwood, Sussex, this Boat Tail – like its predecessor – comes complete with an accommodation suite that folds out at the touch of a button, where a drink, a parasol and rose gold-plated Christopfle tableware await you.

The two-door car, almost 5.8 meters long, does not lack power. Its respectable 250 km/h top speed and five-second sprint come from a 6.75-liter V12 engine that produces 570 hp.

Nevertheless, speed is probably not the main concern of the secret client who ordered this car. We suspect that the vehicle, once delivered, will reside in its dedicated private museum, where there is also an extensive collection of classic and modern cars.
