After Rolls-Royce unveiled the Sweptail at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy, X-Tomi Design now reimagines the most expensive car ever built as a convertible. Yes, it’s the same controversial Rolls-Royce with a price tag of $13 million commissioned by a special client!
Having been inspired by the yachts and swept tail models between the 1920s and 1930s, the client requested Rolls-Royce to make a car with surfaces similar to the hull of a yacht.
As for Xtomi’s latest interpretation, the Sweptail convertible nearly has all the footings of a Phantom Drophead Coupe. Albeit the fact that the coachbuilder has already rolled out its “Last of Last” edition in Saudi Arabia just the previous month. To best describe the Sweptail, the coupe’s massive bodywork with exceptionally designed boat tail comes with panoramic glass roof and extravagant interior that can only seat two people. Little did we expect that it can look just as nice as a cabriolet with rear seats.Read the entire article X-tomi Design hypothetically drawn a Rolls-Royce Sweptail Drophead Coupe
If you have plans to purchase a new factory-fresh Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Drophead Coupe, it is much better to hurry up. This is because the only remaining it is the newest and the last Phantom VII Drophead Coupe to roll off from the carmaker’s production line, as confirmed by a certification from the Rolls-Royce factory.
Rolls-Royce introduced its Phantom family as early as 2003. The first to be launched was the sedan in 2003, and it was followed by the convertible four years later in 2007. Then in 2008, Rolls-Royce introduced the coupe version of the Phantom VII. Now, a decade since the open-top Phantom VII was born, the “Last of Last” edition -- the sole remaining example of the 2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe -- is now up for sale by at the Seven Car Lounge in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. According to the listing, this Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe is a fresh output of the carmaker’s Goodwood assembly facility, which is in now being retooled to prepare for the production of the model’s future successor.
As a proof that this Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Drophead Coupe – with Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of 12345 -- is still fresh from the factory, the “Last of Last” edition has zero miles traveled since it was rolled off from the production line. Its core is served by a powerful 6.5-liter 12-cylinder V12 petrol engine, which delivers 460 PS of max output and 720 Nm of peak torque. This high level of power is sent to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission. The powertrain is accommodated in body frame that is made from pure aluminum components. By using such material and construction, Rolls-Royce was able to make the casing as light as possible while making it stiff and strong.Read the entire article Last of Last Rolls-Royce Phantom VII Drophead Coupe now on sale in Saudi Arabia

Rolls-Royce has just confirmed that is developing a new model that will hit the dealerships by mid-2016. We believe that the manufacturer is talking about the rumored SUV as several sources said that the new vehicle will arrive by 2017. If true, the Rolls-Royce SUV will debut just in time to take on the Bentley SUV, which wants to be the fastest and most luxurious on the market.
A source who claims that he saw the first sketches said that the new Rolls-Royce SUV will look like a Mercedes-Benz GLK-plus-plus. Under the hood, we expect to see the big petrol engine, but a hybrid version could also be offered as Bentley already announced its plans for a plug-in hybrid version of its SUV, which will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine and an electric motor.Read the entire article Rolls-Royce confirms new model by mid-2016, might be the Wraith Drophead Coupe
