Rolls-Royce enriched its collection of expensive one-off creations with the new Rolls-Royce Arcadia Droptail.

The car has just been delivered to its owner, and now people are wondering who that person might be.

Named after the home of the Gods Hermes and Pan in Greek mythology, the Arcadia is the third (of four) limited-edition ‘Droptail’ convertibles unveiled by Rolls-Royce.

A fourth model will be unveiled soon, and the Arcadia follows the La Rose Noire and the Amethyst (the one with a dashboard clock that costs six figures) in the Droptail collection, which in turn was preceded by the Boat Tail collection

The thing with these cars is they’re extremely expensive, with eight-figure price tags.

The cars are entirely custom built, from scratch, for their respective owners, who generally remain anonymous.

There are rumors that Galatasaray star Mauro Icardi and Jay-Z both own a Boat Tail, but these rumors are generally unconfirmed.

The only thing we know for sure about the Rolls-Royce Arcadia is that it was purchased by a ‘mystery billionaire’ from Singapore.

The car is gorgeous, finished in a combination of white and silver with glass, aluminum, and carbon fiber accents on the bodywork.

The interior is a triumph of leather and wood, which was also used to cover the yacht-style deck lid at the back.

According to Rolls-Royce, a total of 223 individual pieces of wood were used for the car, and it took over 8,000 hours to apply them by hand.

Under the hood, the Arcadia is powered by a 6.75-liter V12, delivering 593 horsepower.

Ordinarily, we’d be tempted to say that actually doesn’t matter because these cars generally live in air-conditioned vaults and never actually see the road.

However, a while back, Supercar Blondie’s very own Sergi Galiano actually managed to spot a Boat Tail out ‘in the wild’ in Dubai, actually being driven on the road.

That is incredibly rare for a car of this sort.
