Rolls-Royce’s La Rose Noire Droptail: A Synthesis of Luxury, Art, and Timekeeping
In a groundbreaking move, Rolls-Royce debuts its inaugural two-seat vehicle, the La Rose Noire Droptail, as part of its Coachbuild series. This masterpiece draws inspiration from the Black Baccara tea rose, cherished by the lady who initiated the project.
The car’s standout design includes a convertible roof, with a glass panel that turns translucent at a touch. This low-slung roof imparts an urbane aesthetic. Within, the cockpit dazzles with 1,603 meticulously hand-painted wood triangles, assembled over two years, simulating scattered rose petals. The exterior boasts a rich burgundy, enhanced with five layers of clear lacquer, each imbued with varied red tones.
Yet, what truly distinguishes the Droptail is an incorporated Audemars Piguet timepiece – a custom 43mm Royal Oak Concept Chronograph, ingeniously designed to be worn by the owner.
Rolls-Royce’s Anders Warming lauded the vehicle as a revolutionary expression of the brand’s luxurious craftsmanship. This is just the first among four unique Droptail commissions, with more revelations ahead.
