Talk about going out in style – a company have made the world’s most luxurious and expensive hearse.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom Hearse B12 is made entirely from aluminium and stretches seven metres-long (23 feet) – three feet longer than the normal model.
Built by Italian custom builder Biemme Special Cars, the four-door is powered by a Rolls-Royce 6.75-litre V12 engine and composed of over 600 assembled parts and 200 metres of wielding.
And because heading for the grave shouldn’t be a dark experience, the coffin compartment features high luminescence LEDs to illuminate the casket.
Biemme have not announced a price tag for the unique model but it is expected too cost over ?500,000 (£417,000).
Company spokesman Dario Andreotto says: “For some time Biemme Special Cars have been wanting to make something extraordinary, something that didn’t pass unnoticed and could not be matched by anyone else.
“We created the Phantom Hearse B12 with the sole intent of being the world’s most luxurious hearse. It’s not easy to pass near the B12 and remain unmoved.”
