The Droptail from Rolls-Royce is a Superlatively Luxurious Two-Seat Roadster

– During Monterey Car Week, Rolls-Royce revealed the Droptail, its newest coachbuilt vehicle.

– La Rose Noire, the original Droptail, supposedly takes its name from the Black Baccara rose variety.

The prior efforts paled in comparison to the scale of this project.

A monocoque structure of steel, aluminum, and carbon fiber is said to underpin the Droptail’s design.

The 6.7-liter V-12 here has 593 horsepower, which is 30 more than the base Phantom, and 620 pound-feet of torque.

At The Quail, during Car Week, the first of four Droptail attempts is unveiled.
