I'm the furthest thing from a car snob as they come. Granted, I'm very particular about what I'lll drive, but only in the sense that it has to be a Volkswagen Beetle. Not that Beetles aren't lovely cars, but they aren't 13-million-dollars and custom built. That being said, I want this car. Why? Because it's nicer than most people's homes.
As per The Verge—"According to a (fantastically baroque) 2,500-plus-word press release issued by the company, a very rich man who considers himself a “connoisseur and collector of distinctive, one-off items including super-yachts and private aircraft” came to Rolls-Royce in 2013 with a request: would the automaker be so kind as to create a bespoke car for him?"
Must be nice, huh? Just calling up Rolls-Royce and asking for a tiny favor by way of 13 million dollars and the world's most beautiful car. Oh, how the other half lives. Question is, what exactly warrants that kind of price-tag? Take a look—
- Panoramic glass roof
- Polished Macassar Ebony and open-pore Paldao wood interior
- Analog clock in the dash uses machined titanium
- The center console hides a champagne chiller and two crystal flutes (not so sure this a solid idea against the whole drinking and driving thing, but my God is it cool).
- The car’s side walls conceal a pair of carbon fiber attaché cases that have been specifically designed to fit the buyer’s laptop, and they match a set of custom luggage found in the trunk.
