They clearly fit the profile.
Last week, Rolls-Royce revealed one of its most astounding and opulent commissions yet: the aptly named Boat Tail. Rolls-Royce has a long history of beautiful coachbuilt cars but the Boat Tail is still something exceptional with its long body and the well-known 6.75-liter V12 engine that does duty in other Rolls models like the Phantom.
But the question is, which elite individual - or individuals - ordered this stunning Rolls with its price tag of around $28 million? Well, a new report by The Telegraph indicates that the bespoke Boat Tail was likely commissioned by none other than power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z.
Perhaps the duo felt outdone by Drake's custom Rolls-Royce Cullinan or maybe they just wanted a car of unsurpassed luxury but the couple clearly has the means to acquire this beauty. "It's thought this fantastic car has been commissioned by Beyonce and Jay-Z, with all its detailing matching their favorite things," said an unnamed source.
What are those details? For one, the couple is known to enjoy outdoor picnicking and the Boat Tail comes with a rear deck that dramatically opens with butterfly-like wings to reveal bar stools and a cocktail table. It's preposterous and wonderful at the same time. There are a few other clues that Beyonce and Jay-Z commissioned this car.
Apparently, the Boat Tail has a fridge set at six degrees Centigrade. This is the exact temperature required to store a bottle of Armand de Brignac, said to be the owner's favored drink. The blue color of the leather could be a link to the couple's child, Blue Ivy, too. There is also a spot on the dash to hold a wristwatch and use that as a clock - Jay-Z is known for his exclusive watch collection.
"I enjoyed many meetings with the owner and his wife at their home," said Alex Innes who heads up coachbuild design for Rolls-Royce. "They were wonderfully welcoming."
Allegedly, both the music stars signed the engine manifold and other hidden areas of the lavish convertible when it was built. A hard knock life? Not anymore.
