The radiator grille is very large…
The “Pantheon” grille is in fact the largest of any modern era Rolls-Royce. It’s milled from solid aluminium. Periphery of the whole front end is framed by brushed aluminium.
What other design highlights?
Take your pick. The tapering cabin roof is certainly distinctive, while its vast glass section is impressive for its scale and complexity of curvature. And yes you can access the luggage deck through the rear opening backlight (it’s a hatchback, sort of…). The roofline accelerates towards the rear of the car, overshooting the boot lid edge to emphasise its length. The ‘bullet-tip’ houses the centre brake light.
Then there’s the raked stern, said by Rolls-Royce to be “the ultimate homage to the world of racing yachts.” There’s more yacht in the way the bodywork wraps under the car with no visible boundary, akin to the hull of a yacht, says R-R. And then there’s the upward sweep at the rear departure angle, culminating in the swept-tail that gives Sweptail its name.
What’s it like on the inside?
Modern, minimalistic and handcrafted are the words Rolls-Royce uses to describe it. A strict two-seater with very yacht-inspired rear deck area, the cabin is a clutter-free cocoon of luxury with some very special touches indeed. Polished Macassar Ebony and open-pore Paldao provide a light and dark theme echoed by contrasting light Moccasin and Dark Spice leathers. The dashboard is simple in the extreme, with most switchgear relocated out of sight. The clock is special: its face is handmade out of the thinnest Macassar veneer so it disappears into the dash. And the hands? They are machined from titanium. Obviously.
