Crossing boundaries – Rolls-Royce unveils Boat Tail, a masterpiece of design
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars unveils Boat Tail – one of their most ambitious bespoke car designs yet. This unique and ambitious four-seater open-top is the product of four intensive years of creation and a tribute to the master skills of Rolls-Royce Coachbuild – a now permanent fixture in Rolls-Royce’s future portfolio. Rolls-Royce created the modern coachbuilding movement with Sweptail in 2017. This motor car set a new watermark of potential and ignited a fascination among collectors, patrons of the arts and commissioning clients of now-iconic architecture.
In this film, Alex Innes, Head Designer of Coachbuild, gives us a fascinating insight into the art of handcrafting a unique and exceptional motor car. When you see the full handcrafting process of the design, clay modelling, delicate hand-beating and honing of the aluminium frames, you understand why Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, says: “it’s not about money – it’s about perfection.”
