This $1 million custom motorbike is powered by a Rolls-Royce plane engine

This custom motorbike is powered by a Rolls-Royce airplane engine and costs a whopping $1 million.

The man behind the build is former F1 driver Tarso Marques. 

Marques told Supercar Blondie he wanted to create something totally custom and unlike anything that’s ever been done before. 

And he did just that.

Marques designed the bike over a number of years and finally brought it to life this year. 

He said it took seven months to build it in his Brazilian studio and “every single detail was a big challenge”.

“Everything was created from scratch for it,” he said. 

“One of the biggest challenges was to do the wheels and tires this size.”

Both the front and rear wheels are a massive 36 inches. 

He said it was difficult to make the massive wheels “work well and also look smooth, slick and clean”. 

But he pulled it off successfully.

The bike doesn’t just look amazing, it’s a beast on the road too, reaching up to 250km/h (155 miles). 

Marques has now sold the bike to a buyer in Dubai for a whopping $1 million. 

He said he would not be creating another one like it because “we like to keep everything really exclusive for the owners”. 

So this $1 million Rolls-Royce-powered motorbike will be the only one in the world.

To create the one-off masterpiece, Marques said he worked in collaboration with an airplane engineer. 

The Formula 1 and Indycar racing driver has created a huge range of custom creations, not limited to motorbikes. 

His portfolio includes car builds, airplanes, and even yachts. 

Marques told Supercar Blondie he was currently working on a line of retro carbon fiber Porsches that he plans to unveil at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance next year. 

Who is Tarso Marques? 

Marques is a Brazilian racing driver who has raced in 24 Formula One Grands Prix. 

He competes part time in the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity series.

Now he is passionate about creating custom bikes, cars, planes and yachts.
