Following the introduction of the first device, known as La Rose Noire, at Monterey Auto Week, Rolls-Royce has introduced the following limited-production Droptail.

Amethyst, the name of this Droptail, is inspired by the purple gemstone. It has an ethereal paint job and real amethyst in the gauge cluster.

It also has sections of open-pore wood and carbon fibre that is purple in colour.


Rolls-Royce unveiled the Droptail, a stunning new convertible, this month at Monterey Auto Week. The V-12-powered two-doorway will only be produced in 4 models, each with a unique particular motif. La Rose Noire, the first example, displayed 1063 pieces of wood trim arranged in a geometric design and was painted a rich, enticing shade of pink. The 2nd Droptail, named after the gemstone amethyst, was just unveiled by Rolls-Royce. It features a stunning purple paint job, acres of open-pore wood, and genuine amethyst jewels.

Although Rolls-Royce hasn’t disclosed a selling price for the Droptail, the Boat Tail, a prior bespoke project, had a price tag of over $20 million. According to Rolls-Royce, the unnamed customer first operated a jewellery store before growing into a global corporation. We believe the multi-million dollar price tag was not a problem for this rich people because the client collects diamonds (along with cars and artwork) in their own personal museum. Their son’s birthstone, amethyst, served as the idea for the purple hues throughout the car.

On the other side, the elegant paint job is inspired by the global amaranth wildflower, which, according to Rolls-Royce, “blooms in the desert around one particular of the client’s houses.” The contrast between the light purple overall body and the darker-colored hood is designed to represent different stages of the flower’s blossoming. The light purple overall body has specks of powdered aluminium to create a sparkling finish. The lower portion of the carbon fibre body is finished in an amazing chevron pattern with an amethyst tint, and the 22-inch polished aluminium wheels also feature a touch of purple paint.

With the grille of the Droptail, Rolls-Royce deviated from convention by angling the vertical vanes inward for the first time. The vanes of the Amethyst Droptail have a dividing line between two hand-polished and hand-brushed finishes. The unusual procedure, which reportedly took 50 hours, was inspired by a watch that the owner’s son chose because it had brushed arms. Similar to La Rose Noire, the reduced air intake utilises an elaborate, complicated structure made of 202 rectangles of hand-polished stainless steel that have been coated with a colour similar to globe amaranth.

The Spirit of Ecstasy pendant, which is perched atop the broad hood, is made of amethyst cabochons, a term for when a gem is polished into a rounded shape rather than faceted like the gems on many wedding rings. The electrochromic glass of the Droptail may switch from being opaque with a purple tint to translucent with a hint of the Sand Dunes tone. It also has a retractable hardtop roof.

The client chose the Calamander Light open-pore strain, which is meant to match the Sand Dunes leather accessories, and the cabin is entirely made of wood. According to Rolls-Royce, finding wood that perfectly complemented the leather took six and a half months. Tan leather may be seen on the seats and dashboard, which contrasts with the predominantly purple leather interior.

The wood runs from the dashboard down the door panels to what Rolls-Royce refers to as the “aft deck,” which is plainly supposed to evoke opulent boats and where the grain takes on an amazing V-form. The wood was obviously put to the test for 8000 hours under conditions that included exposure to intense sunlight and rain, temperatures that ranged from 176 degrees Fahrenheit to minus 22 degrees. The deck may also have aerodynamic benefits, according to Rolls-Royce, which claims that it is the “only ‘raw’ picket surface in the world that creates downforce on a new roadgoing motor automobile.”

The gauges are a replica of the Spirit of Ecstasy on the hood, which is encrusted with amethyst stones in cabochon form. Additionally, there are woven leather floor mats in the interior, which, according to Rolls-Royce, are a nod to the traditional weaving seen in the souks, or Arab markets, of the owner’s particular household. The dashboard, like La Rose Noire, features a spot for a special treat that the buyer orders from Swiss jeweller Vacheron Constantin. The wearable can be removed from its dashboard casing.
