This year’s exclusive Concours of Elegance event – held at Hampton Court in September – saw the completely bespoke Rolls-Royce Sweptail taking part in a new ‘Future Classics’ feature. It was displayed alongside a brace of rare Aston Martins – a Vanquish Zagato Speedster and a V12 Vantage V600 Coupé – as well as the first of the all-new McLaren Senna series.
SWEPTAIL AT CONCOURS OF ELEGANCE
The one-off Sweptail was originally unveiled on the shores of Lake Como in May 2017, heralding a remarkable return to the fully coachbuilt Rolls-Royce designed and built in-house. It is also one of very few two-seater models created by Rolls-Royce throughout the marque’s 114-year history.
The lucky owner of the Sweptail ensured that the car was created exactly to his requirements, even down to the secret ‘his and hers’ attaché cases that deploy on command from the B-pillars, plus a centre console that effortlessly provides his favourite Dom Perignon vintage Champagne – chilled, of course, along with two fine cut crystal flutes.
