Rolls-Royce Sweptail

The Rolls-Royce Sweptail wasn't initially made for any specific reason: it was a request. A car that once took the title of the most expensive in the world, it's a model that's captured the hearts of all kinds of car fanatics across the planet.

One of the best things about this car is its fusion of the old and the new: modern luxury combined with a hint of 1920s and '30s glamour. We're talking about characteristics from the classic Rolls-Royce silhouette combined with innovation and technology.

Despite all we know about it, there's one thing unknown: its owner. This one-off car truly is one of a kind.The Rolls-Royce Sweptail is a one-off large luxury car made in the United Kingdom by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. At the time of its May 2017 debut at the yearly Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, it was the most expensive new automobile in the world, costing around US$12.8 million.

The Sweptail is owned by Hong Kong-based customer Sam Li, son of billionaire real estate mogul Samuel Tak Lee. 

The car is stored in the United Kingdom and has been spotted driving on the motorways there.The Sweptail is based on the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé and hand-built over four years. Inspired by coachbuilding of the 1920s and 1930s. The car was commissioned bespoke in 2013 as a one-off automobile, at the request of a super-yacht and aircraft specialist, who had a unique idea in mind. Giles Taylor, former director of design at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars described the vehicle as "the automotive equivalent of Haute couture".In 2019, it was overtaken as the most expensive new car by the Bugatti La Voiture Noire which sold for US $ 18.7 million.
