The Ultimate Coachbuilt Car: The Story Behind The Rolls-Royce La Rose Noire Droptail

Rolls-Royce, the epitome of luxury and elegance, has unveiled its latest masterpiece: the Rolls-Royce La Rose Noire Droptail, a one-of-a-kind Coachbuilt creation that is rumored to be the world's most expensive car. The price tag of this stunning vehicle is not officially disclosed, but some sources estimated it to be around $50 million.

The La Rose Noire Droptail is the first commission of the Rolls-Royce Coachbuild program which allows the most discerning and wealthy clients to collaborate with the Rolls-Royce design team to create their own bespoke and unique cars. The program is inspired by the golden age of coachbuilding when Rolls-Royce chassis were fitted with custom-made bodies by independent craftsmen.

The La Rose Nore Droptail is the result of a four-year collaboration between Rolls-Royce and a family of passionate collectors, who wanted to create a car that reflects their personal journey, tastes, and passions. The car is named after the Black Baccara rose, a rare and mysterious flower that symbolizes deep romance and secrecy.

The exterior of the car is painted in a special shade-shifting color called "True Love" and "Mystery", which changes from a passionate red to a deep black depending on the light and angle. The color took over 150 iterations to perfect and is applied by hand in 23 layers. The car also features a distinctive droptail design, which harks back to the classic Rolls-Royce boat tail models of the 1920s and 1930s. The droptail opens up to reveal a luxurious picnic set, complete with crystal glasses, silver cutlery, and porcelain plates.

The La Rose Noire Droptail is not only a masterpiece of design and craftsmanship but also a masterpiece of engineering and performance. The car is based on the Rolls-Royce Phantom platform but has been extensively modified to accommodate the unique body shape and features. The car is powered by a 6.75 - liter twin0turbocharged V12 engine, producing 563 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. The car can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds, and has a top speed of 155 kmp.

The La Rose Nore Droptail is a car that transcendent the boundaries of automotive art. It is a car that expresses the vision, passion, and personality of its owners. It is a car that celebrates the legacy and future of Rolls-Royce. It is a car that deserves to be called "The Black Rose".
