Rolls-Royce Boat Tail: A Seminal Moment For The Legendary House


“Today marks a seminal moment for the House of Rolls-Royce. We are proud to unveil Rolls-Royce Boat Tail to the world, and with it, the confirmation of coachbuilding as a permanent fixture within our future portfolio … Only the House of Rolls-Royce can offer its Coachbuild clients the inimitable opportunity to commission a product of future historical significance, that is as fundamentally unique as they are – and then participate in every detail of its creation. This is authentic luxury. This is contemporary patronage in its truest form. This is Rolls-Royce Coachbuild.” — Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive, Rolls-Royce 

The inaugural Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is a combination of extraordinary thoughts, concepts and items, which come together to form the clients’ perfect experience. The commissioning patrons, a couple of worldwide success who are highly skilled in the appointment of Rolls-Royces, truly represent our ambassadorship.

To satisfy the clients’ remarkable ambitions, significant engineering difficulties were overcome in the development of Rolls-Royce Boat Tail. Indeed, 1813 completely new parts were developed specifically for the cars. Time, patience, dedication and passion were the project’s hallmarks. To complete the preliminary engineering phase, before the beginning of production, a total of over 20 collective years were spent.

Rolls-Royce Boat Tail presents an astonishing new look for the marque, balancing hitherto unseen levels of production. The creation tells the romantic tale of Rolls-Royce’s history, echoing a Boat Tail design but not explicitly mimicking it, fusing a historical body type with a completely modern design.
