Before gasping at the price, you have to notice that this car is off the markets.

The inspiration behind the Sweptail comes from Rolls-Royce classics from the 1920s and 1930s. With the sweeping lines and the coachbuilt quality, it recreates that ethos perfectly. The sunroof is fully panoramic, tapering down sharply like those of the racing yachts, as per the orders of the customer. The interior handcrafted with wood and leather is the hidden attaché cases for holding laptops behind each door. Not much else is available on this most expensive car in the world, except that it is based on the 1920s and 30s models, and looks like a yacht from the back.
