Watch: Dad builds a fully functional wooden Rolls-Royce Boat Tail replica for his son – News
Rolls-Royce had record sales last year, during which it also unveiled the most expensive new car ever made: Boat Tail.
It is a blue two-seater convertible that has all the conveniences you would expect of a Rolls-Royce vehicle, including a ‘welcome area’ in the back, which has wine glasses and plates ready for a picnic. The exuberant car was built specifically for a customer and retails for NZ$38 million.
But now there is a second boat tail in the world. But it’s not blue, it won’t cost you nearly $40 million, and it’s wooden.
This one is a creation of the very talented ND – Wood Art on YouTube, who made the vehicle for his young son. It’s a scaled-down version of the Rolls-Royce, and it actually drives.
The project took 68 days and the video above details the incredible work that went into making this masterpiece. It has two axles, an electric motor, a disc brake to slow it down, working lights and a simple chain drive motor that spins the wheels.
But perhaps coolest of all, the scaled-down wooden version of the Boat Tail, features a power-opening rear deck, revealing a vanity tray just like the car it’s based on. There’s even a holder for a remote-controlled umbrella.
This project is nothing short of spectacular, and I’m sure it’s something he and his son will enjoy for years to come.
