$13M Rolls-Royce Sweptail Spotted Chilling with Koenigsegg Agera RS in Norway
Back in May, Rolls-Royce dropped the Sweptail one-off, with the $13 million coupe having serious chances of earning the title of the most expensive new car ever. Of course, we all wondered how such a landyacht would spend its days.
Well, here we are, bring you a day in the life of the current Crewe halo car. The lavish two-door was spotted in Norway earlier this week.
The trip that brought the two together also involved a host of other uber-exclusive machines, such as the Ferrari F12 Tour De France and the McLaren P1. For instance, the machines got to stretch their mechanical legs through the Trollstigen Road.
The Sweptail was built by Rolls-Royce Bespoke personalization arm for a customer who has a thing for one-off machines, owning multiple yachts of the kind, as well as private jets.
The lavish Grand Tourer, which has seen its rear seat area trading its accommodation for the sake of cabin design, is based on the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. Speaking of which, the exclusive materials used inside the car include open-pore Paldao wood, Macassar Ebony, as well as Mocassic and Dark Spice leather.
The firepower department of the luxurious two-door machine was left untouched, which means the engine compartment houses a twin-turbo 6.75-liter V12 that delivers 453 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque. The output, which is offered effortlessly, is sent to the rear wheels with the help of an eight-speed automatic tranny.
As for the pricing accolade mentioned above, the Roller might have been one-upped by the Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta that recently made its way into our pretty little world. However, we can only rely on unofficial sources when talking about the $15 million price tag of the San Cesario sul Panaro hypercar, so we have to take this with a grain of salt brake dust.
