Rolls-Royce Boat Tail with Pearl-Inspired Paint Debuted in Italy


This Rolls-Royce Boat Tail with Pearl-Inspired Paintjob doesn’t have a name, but it is one of the luxury brand’s most sophisticated color ever created. But don’t think this of as a Brown paint job, the brand didn’t provide an official name for the shade, but it combines several hues inspired by pearl shells from the buyer’s collection. This is the second-of-three Boat Tails that Rolls-Royce will build.

This Boat Tail or also referred to as “the next chapter” made its public debut this weekend at Concorso d’Eleganza, Villa d’Este in Italy. As the buyer remains anonymous, but Rolls-Royce says the individual’s family does have a history in the pearl industry. That’s where the pearl connection to the exterior finish comes from, the person presented four shells to the automaker for inspiration. This resulted in one of the most sophisticated finishes ever originated by Rolls-Royce Bespoke, the foundation consists of Oyster and Soft Rose along with flakes of white and bronze mixed in.

This combination creates a pearlescent effect with a color-shift quality, which is just the primary shade you see on the car. The hood dons a dark Cognac color with more Bronze and some Gold tossed in. For the rear, a Walnut Veneer with Rose Gold pinstripes. To normal eyes, the overall statement is one of beige with a kiss of rose, that sets ablaze with the darker contrasting color. It’s impressive in the photos and looks even better in person.


The interior sports similar pearl shells inspired but with more Cognac colors, more Walnut, more Rose Gold, and naturally, mother-of-pearl accents. The Boat Tail owner supplied Rolls-Royce with mother-of-pearl from his collection to be used during construction. “Every Rolls-Royce Coachbuild commission is, of course, incredibly special; but in this case, there was an additional depth of feeling,” said Alex Innes, Rolls-Royce head of coachbuild design.
