If a Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is, like for most of us, outside of your budget, imagine if you could DIY.

While that might seem near impossible that’s exactly what this dad, woodworking artist, and content creator made for his young son.

Taking him 68 days to build, it’s got almost as many hours of craftsmanship that’s gone into it as the real deal.

From the first piece of wood, we see the initial body of the car take form piece by piece.

He then gets to work meticulously whittling and crafting every tiny little detail.

These include badges, the grille, and a rear deck that is exactly like the original.

It even has working headlights, brake lights, and turn signals.

This is a true labor of love from a father devoted to his son.

And, as the pair drive down the street before dropping for a drink of juice from the rear deck – it looks like it was worth every single minute of hard work.

A new Rolls Royce Boat Tail, one of only three that will ever exist, sold for up to $28 million in 2022.

The epitome of excellence and owned by Argentinan soccer player, Mauro Icardi, the custom-build by Rolls-Royce is often referred to as a ‘land yacht’.

That’s thanks to its expansive rear deck, reminiscent of a luxury yacht’s stern.

The 19-foot, four-seater convertible comes equipped with a parasol and a telescopic table that automatically extends, ideal for a picturesque picnic for two.

Inside, silvery cutlery and porcelain plates from Christofle elevate the experience, as do the two refrigerators tailored for champagne bottles.

Under the hood, the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is powered by a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 engine which packs nearly 600 horsepower.

It’s unclear what the (rocking) horsepower of the wooden version is, but he also built a wooden version of the Cybertruck and Cyberquad in 100 days.
