There are luxury cars and then there's Rolls Royce’s latest coachbuilt masterpiece, “Boat Tail,” which holds a stunning $28 million pricetag – making it the world's most expensive car. But this exclusivity makes sense when you consider, the world's greatest power couple might be behind the ride.
According, to Page Six Beyoncé and JAY-Z commissioned the bespoke Rolls-Royce with all its bells and whistles. While the car manufactuter hasn’t confirmed if the celebrity couple are the owners, earlier this week it did unveil its Boat Tail convertible for an undisclosed client.
Dressed in blue – perhaps a nod to the Carters’ daughter Blue Ivy and their overall obsession with the color – the vehicle boasts a number of luxury features, including a rear deck with a dinner set, parasol, rotating cocktail tables, and a double refrigerator. The car also includes features like two-sided Bovet 1822 timepieces made for a couple, which can be used in the car as clocks or worn. It's these extra trimmings that take the car to its rumored $28 million price.
Everything points to this being the Carters' whip. Rolls-Royce specifically describes the refrigerator’s ability to keep “the clients’ favorite vintages of Armand de Brignac” at “precisely six degrees.” It's worth nothing that Hov recently sold 50 percent of his stake in Armand de Brignac to Moët Hennessy in February. The convertible grand tourer was also made for the Mediterranean backroads of the Cote d’Azur, a place JAY and Bey frequent.
"It's thought this fantastic car has been commissioned by Beyoncé and JAY-Z with all its detailing matching their favorite things," a car industry source told The Telegraph.
The model is one of three lavish bespoke models. It took four years to design and produce the vehicles in collaboration with the clients. Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Rolls-Royce’s CEO, calls it the company’s “most ambitious project yet.”
