Rolls-Royce recently shocked the world when it revealed a one-off car, created for an ultra-wealthy client. The Sweptail was unveiled at the Concorso d'Eleganza car show in Italy, and the design is inspired by Rolls-Royce cars from the '30s. While the front end of the car may seem familiar, except for the large grille, the portion that defines the Sweptail is the rear, which is styled to resemble a luxury yacht. This bespoke masterpiece is the result of the painstaking efforts of the people that craft a Rolls-Royce and that is one of the reasons why this one of a kind Rolls-Royce costs a whopping $13 million or Rs 83.66 crore (before taxes). While you let that sink in, the image gallery below gives you a glimpse of the most expensive car in the world.
