A one-of-a-kind Rolls Royce has been unveiled at a cost of £20M, making it one of the most expensive cars in the world.
The second bespoke car in the Rolls Royce Boat Tail trio was released after being commissioned by a family who made their fortune in the pearl trade.
The one-of-a-kind luxury convertible grand tourer has a gorgeous pearlescent exterior – and costs a cool £20million.
Inside, the detail is inspired by mother-of-pearl, a nod to who commissioned the luxurious engine.
In the back of the hand-crafted vehicle is a “hospitality suite” with a dining set, beverage cooler and food warmer.
And on a sunny day, the driver of the two-door four-seater can also extend a table and open a sunshade – all hidden under two butterfly doors.
Rose gold-plated crockery and a cutlery set by Christofle of Paris come with the car – and the lucky driver can use them outdoors when you stop for a picnic.
The elegant Rolls Royce also has a mother-of-pearl dashboard clock and a lot of luxurious gadgets hidden inside.
Inside, the iridescent material is also used for the control switches and dials “to create a strong visual and material connection between the car, the owner and their family heritage”.
Oyster leather and soft rose accents complement the opulent car, which subtly changes color in different lights.

And the transmission tunnel is made of Royal Walnut veneer – with rose gold pinstripes to enhance the stunning opulence.
The Goodwood, Sussex-based manufacturer declined to name the customer for whom the world’s most expensive car was built.
But Rolls Royce said the new Boat Tail was created for him by his bespoke coachbuild arm, “as a tribute to his father and his family heritage”.
Avid motor fans can see the beauty being unveiled at Saturday’s Concorso d’Eleganza event at Villa d’Este on Lake Como in northern Italy.
Rolls-Royce said: “It was commissioned by a patron whose family business has grown from his father’s origins in the pearl industry.
“The client is well-travelled, internationally educated and cosmopolitan in taste and influences. He is an established patron of the arts who also owns a sizeable collection of classic and modern cars housed in his own private museum.”
The stunning exclusive engine uses four specially selected pearl shells and mother-of-pearl highlights as the basis for its color scheme.
More than meets the eye, the extravagant Boat Tail can accelerate from a standing start to 100 km/h in around five seconds.
Rolls Royce added: “Although the trio of Boat Tails share a common body style, each is imbued with the client’s unique, deeply personal imprint, thereby telling different stories.”
