The car was custom-made for singer Beyoncé and the rapper Jay-Z, according to The Telegraph.

Rolls Royce has revealed the world’s most expensive car, the R390 million (£20 million) “Boat Tail”.

The Telegraph claims, though we cannot confirm it, that it was built for billionaire celebrity couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

The car was supposedly inspired by sailing and features a rear deck with cocktail tables, chairs, and a popup parasol.

Refilwe Moloto interviewed international correspondent Adam Gilchrist.

For the money… it doesn’t look like you get an awful lot… Four seats only. The roof is made of canvass that you have to take off manually. The rear flips into a picnic area with matching chairs and an extendable umbrella… personalised his-and-hers watches in the dashboard…

For the same money – R390 million – you could instead buy five Rolls Royce Ghosts, five Ferrari Monzas, five Bugatti Veyrons, and still have enough cash left for 150 Range Rovers!
