British luxury automobile maker Rolls-Royce has debuted its latest coachbuilt masterpiece – the La Rose Noire Droptail, which is the first of the four Droptail commissions. The ultra-customized vehicle, which costs more than $30 million (approx. ₹211 crore), was recently presented to the clients who commissioned it at a private event close to Pebble Beach in California. With this pricing, it has become the world’s most expensive car.
The La Rose Noire is inspired by the Black Baccara rose – a velvet-like flower that originates in France and is a favourite of the mother of the commissioning family. The colour of its petals is a dark pomegranate colour which appears almost black in shade but in direct light, it appears like a red with shimmer. These two hues form the primary colour palette of the vehicle.
