The Sweptail was made upon request
The Rolls-Royce Sweptail isn’t a production model car that was created to retail in mass quantities. It was made on request and the intention of the high-end automaker has been to maintain the uniqueness of the model by foregoing the manufacture of limited editions or production class vehicles that would sully the grandness of the bespoke model that was built in exchange for an obscene amount of money.
The Sweptail was created from a combined DNA of the finest
True Rolls-Royce admirers who understand the rationale behind the design and appreciate the aesthetics of each model crafted have a deep connection with the brand and will easily recognize the components of the Sweptail from the origins of which they came. The prime inspiration for the car is gleaned from the rear of the 1934 Phantom II Streamline Saloon and the round door sides from the 1925 Phantom I. ThePark Ward 20/25 Limousine Coupe coachwork from 1934, along with the Gurney Nutting Phantom II two-door light saloon from the same year.
