Rolls-Royce’s Coachbuilt – masterpiece Boat Tail makes global debut at villa deste

COACHBUILT MASTERPIECE ‘BOAT TAIL’ MAKES GLOBAL DEBUT AT VILLA D’ESTE

Rolls-Royce’s coachbuilt masterpiece Boat Tail makes its global public debut at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on 2 October 2021. The car will be unveiled at 11.30 local time on the Mosaic Lawn by Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

  • Unique coachbuilt ‘Boat Tail’ makes its first-ever public appearance at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on 2 & 3 October 2021
  • Boat Tail on view to guests and media for two days only on the Mosaic Lawn within the grounds of the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este, on the shores of Lake Como, Italy
  • Exhibited four years after the first coachbuilt Rolls-Royce of the modern era, Sweptail, was launched at the same event in 2017


“It is a wonderful privilege to reveal this unique Rolls-Royce to the world for the very first time. Although images have been widely shared, the car itself has not been displayed in public before. The Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza is the perfect occasion, bringing together leading international media alongside knowledgeable motoring experts and discerning luxury aficionados, on the glamorous shores of Lake Como. There is also a pleasing symmetry in that we launched the first coachbuilt Rolls-Royce of the modern era, Sweptail, at the 2017 event.

“It is a truly historic moment for the marque. We are leading a modern coachbuilding movement that takes the wider luxury industry into an entirely different space, where hyper-personalisation and contemporary patronage provide essentially limitless possibilities.”Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars


Rolls-Royce’s coachbuilt masterpiece Boat Tail makes its global public debut at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on 2 October 2021. The car will be unveiled at 11.30 local time on the Mosaic Lawn by Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. It will then be available for guests and journalists to view for two days only, before returning to the privacy and seclusion that have surrounded it since it was formally revealed in May 2021.

Images of the car have been shared and admired around the world; however, this is the first time Boat Tail itself has been displayed in public. It is a unique opportunity for guests and journalists to examine the car’s remarkable coachbuilt construction and extraordinary Bespoke detailing, which were designed and hand-built at the Home of Rolls-Royce in a highly demanding technical and creative project lasting almost four years.

Boat Tail marks a seminal moment in the annals of Rolls-Royce, demonstrating the marque’s commitment to coachbuilding as a central part of its future direction and portfolio. It continues and accelerates a contemporary coachbuilding movement that began with Sweptail, the first coachbuilt Rolls-Royce of the modern era, which also made its first public appearance at Villa d’Este back in 2017.

Boat Tail represents a pivotal moment for the wider luxury goods sector.  As a truly hand-built, one-of-a-kind creation, in which both the bodywork and interior are designed and produced to the client’s specification, Rolls-Royce Coachbuild redraws the boundaries of luxury and opens vast new possibilities for patrons of contemporary design and fine craftsmanship.

First staged in 1929 on the shores of Lake Como in northern Italy, the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is one of the most important and glamorous occasions on the international lifestyle calendar. Normally held in May, the 2021 event takes place from 1-3 October 2021, with Boat Tail presented to the world, for the first time, on 2 & 3 October only

BALTASAR REVOLT – the track electric revolution.

BALTASAR REVOLT

the track electric revolution.

BALTASAR has presented an innovative concept with outstanding performance. An electric supercar for the track and road legal, specifically focused on the driving experience and pleasure: the Baltasar REVOLT. Being the first of its kind, as a fully electric road legal track day car with FIA compliance and designed from scratch without compromises and not taking any existing platform as a reference, the Baltasar REVOLT is the track electric revolution. A revolution because not only it is the most radical electric car but it has unique specs that beats any combustion engined super car in terms of pure driving pleasure with its 500bhp, 1000Nm torque and only 770kg.

The company states that this car does not come to compete against any other existing car. Baltasar offers a new and exciting concept for those car lovers who look for new experiences without forgetting the finest and purest driving sensations.

The project has been developed in secret during years because the company did not want to make a public presentation of just a project of a future new brand but to present a reality surprising everybody with a completely developed and ready to market full electric super sports car.

All the technology implemented in the Baltasar Revolt, whose, even its name has been kept in secret up to the exact moment of the World Premiere, is 100% developed in house, including the sophisticated battery pack, that is one of the key systems and has been engineered in combination with the Spanish high performance battery manufacturer MILLOR BATTERY.

The company is accepting orders through its webpage Baltasar.com and all the Baltasar Revolt units will be manufactured by hand according to customer’s configurations that will ensure the exclusivity of each peace.

The founder of the company is the automotive engineer and tech entrepreneur Baltasar López.

World Premier transcription:

Hello. Thank you all for being here and welcome to the Baltasar world premiere. Today after years of secret development not only are we presenting a new car brand but we are presenting a sports car that is the first of its kind and that will represent the track electric revolution.

Since I was a child, my dream has always been developing cars, so being here today sharing with you this project is like a dream come true.

But first of all, I would like to thank all the people that made this possible, especially the team, the family, the friends, the bosses, the partners, and especially the teachers that had me thinking that impossible was possible. Thank you all.

Baltasar cars are the first track day electric supercars. cars especially conceived for having fun in the circuit, the track, but while still being road legal Cars for just having fun, having pleasure. Cars for Carpe Diem. That’s the philosophy of the company and that’s why we can find a C and D in the logo. When we started the project many years ago, in fact maybe too many years ago, the design started from scratch not using any previous platform and with new and specific technologies in mind All we had was a clean blank sheet of paper for writing down the concept requirements. For example.

With all these requirements translated into numbers, we designed this amazing car Every single component of the car that we are going to unveil in a few minutes has been specifically designed and engineered for this supersport car Looking for perfection in terms of lightness and performance. Here we are going to show you an example that we are very proud of And it’s very important in an electric vehicle. It’s the battery pack.

Design and manufactured in combination with Millor Battery It’s a 700V system. Twice the typical voltage in nowadays electric vehicles and it gives us more than 600km range and 40min in racing conditions. It only weighs 250kg and integrates Millor Battery hybrid cooling And one of the best things, it allows you to charge 100km range in only 5min. That’s quite cool and its something we are proud of. In order to fulfill the lightness requirement nearly everything in the Baltasar super sports cars is made of carbon fiber The whole bodywork, interiors, the driving seat, the steering wheel, the dash, the diffuser. But remember that Baltasar cars are not only road legal Remember that Baltasar sports cars are not only road-legal but track-focused, that’s why we also fulfilled the safety requirements stated by FIA. Integrated into the frame we can see the main roll hoop, the front roll hoop, and the side impact structures integrated into the same frame.

The driver seats here, very low, in a Formula 1 style position, and with all the safety given by the external and internal carbon fiber panels and the mandatory FIA structure. I could be hours explaining to you hundreds of details about this amazing car. For example that all the suspension components are made of aeronautical aluminium, Kevlar, and carbon fiber Or that everything is made by hand in-house. You would prefer to see the car, don’t you? Do you like the Revolt? well, wait for a second because you are going to love it. Rear-wheel drive with two independent electric motors, one for each wheel with torque vectoring. And about numbers: 500bhp, nice. 1000 Nm torque About the acceleration 0 to 100 km/h in only 2.5s That figures are very important when accelerating but what about the mass, that is the key factor when braking or cornering Take note, 770kg. Only 770kg That’s not only the best for an electric car but long better than any other combustion sports car. High power, even more torque, instantaneous acceleration, and minimum mass. That’s why this is the electric revolution.

Everything is made of carbon fiber and from here you can appreciate the clean shapes, the clean aerodynamics of the whole design In the front axle, we have this innovative system that integrates the cooling of the front brakes with this air intake and at the same time we have downforce through this Surface Also, through the interior of the lateral panels, this cold air is running to the battery pack. We also have these lateral intakes where we have the cold air up to the rest of the powertrain.

And finally, in the rear, the hot air is flowing out through these open blades, freely Also, we do have this massive and fully functional, fully carbon fiber rear diffuser for extra downforce without adding drag As you can see, all the lines, all the design is very fluid and very simple and fully functional. You like it, you love it but you want to drive it. Here you have the cockpit with all the controls, driver-orientated. First of all, to get into the car you remove the steering wheel.

Depending on your physiognomy you don’t need to remove the steering wheel but it’s always easier to get inside without it. This quick release helps a lot to do it in a fast way. We connect the 6 point racing harness and once you have everything connected. Wow! That’s amazing. Once you are here you really feel like a Formula one driver

It doesn’t mind you don’t even need to switch on anything. Just because of the driving position you know you are going to have real fun with this thing Here you have the power selector mode, from eco, practice, race, and qualifying the hardest one. On the left side, we have the selector for the regenerative braking level, from the maximum to the minimum That’s really really comfortable for having some track days.

Ok, it’s time to finish but I know you still have at least two questions. One is how much does it cost and the other one is when can you have yours The price tag is 230.000€ before taxes and you can buy it now from our website

First deliveries will be during the second half of next year, That’s the Baltasar Revolt, that’s the track electric revolution. Thank you very much.

Watches and Wonders Geneva | Nearly 40 watchmaking Maisons to exhibit at the physical Salon in 2022

Watches and Wonders Geneva | 

Nearly 40 watchmaking Maisons to exhibit at the physical Salon in 2022

After two entirely digital editions, the key watchmaking industry event is confirmed to take place in Geneva both in a physical format – in the halls of Palexpo – and digitally, via the watchandwonders.com platform. Nearly 40 watch and jewellery brands will gather at this watchmaking summit for the first time over 7 days – from 30 March to 5 April 2022.

The next Watches and Wonders Geneva, which is eagerly awaited after two years of being entirely online, is already shaping up for 2022. More than a trade show, this watchmaking summit will bring together the main industry players, with the arrival of new brands such as Hublot, TAG Heuer and Zenith from the LVMH Group, Grand
Seiko, Oris and the jeweller Van Cleef & Arpels who is making its return to the Salon.

Reputed brands such as Chanel, Chopard, Patek Philippe, Rolex and Tudor will also be exhibiting for the first time in Geneva. Not to mention other major Maisons, such as Cartier, Hermès, IWC Schaffhausen, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Piaget, Ulysse Nardin and Vacheron Constantin, who have been regulars for many years.

All these players will vibrate to the rhythm of a thrilling watch-industry week and will be showcased in one single setting at Palexpo. The Carré des Horlogers will welcome fifteen independent designer-craftsmen and women at the centre of the exhibition.

A hybrid, flexible concept.

After proving its agility over the last two events, Watches and Wonders Geneva is moving to a hybrid format so that visitors can above all have a face-to-face experience but also participate on line, depending on the changing context of the pandemic.

Everything has been thought through and organised to ensure that the product presentations, new product launches, keynotes, panel discussions and conferences can be followed in Geneva by visitors onsite, but also, for those who are unable to travel, remotely, via the www.watchesandwonders.com platform. All the content will be available online, live or in replay.

But nothing can ever replace in-person experience. Industry players have clearly stated their desire to get together around the products. They want their guests to be able to see and touch the exceptional pieces, to discuss, debate and interact on site.

Watches and Wonders Geneva 2022 promises once again to be a great success but also a wonderful reunion. Whether in Geneva or elsewhere in the world, make a date for this leading watchmaking summit, from 30 March to 5 April 2022!

Bugatti Presents the Centodieci at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2021 and celebrates 30 years of the legendary Bugatti EB110

Bugatti Presents the Centodieci at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2021 and celebrates 30 years of the legendary Bugatti EB110

With its timeless beauty, Villa d’Este on the shores of Lake Como has provided a residency for the aristocracy, princesses, marquises, sultans and tsars for centuries. Considered one of the most breath-taking architectural works of the sixteenth century, every year, this elegant five-star resort welcomes automotive enthusiasts from all over the globe to the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Here, they can appreciate the spectacle of some of the finest automobiles and motorcycles, in both production and prototype form, ever created. This year, visitors could also enjoy Bugatti’s stunning Centodieci, which the French luxury brand was presenting in the ‘Concept Cars & Prototypes’ category over the previous weekend from Saturday 2nd to Sunday 3rd October 2021.

With its timeless beauty, Villa d’Este on the shores of Lake Como has provided a residency for the aristocracy, princesses, marquises, sultans and tsars for centuries. Considered one of the most breath-taking architectural works of the sixteenth century, every year, this elegant five-star resort welcomes automotive enthusiasts from all over the globe to the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Here, they can appreciate the spectacle of some of the finest automobiles and motorcycles, in both production and prototype form, ever created. This year, visitors could also enjoy Bugatti’s stunning Centodieci, which the French luxury brand was presenting in the ‘Concept Cars & Prototypes’ category over the previous weekend from Saturday 2nd to Sunday 3rd October 2021.

Bugatti unveiled the Centodieci – which translates as 110 in Italian – during Monterey Car Week in California at the Quail in 2019 to celebrate the company’s 110th anniversary. Inspired by the legendary Bugatti EB110 of 1991 and powered by the 8.0-liter W16 engine producing 1,600PS, just 10 Centodieci units will be hand-built at Bugatti’s Molsheim Atelier and be delivered to customers next year. All ten Centodieci models had already been accounted for by customers prior to the car’s unveiling.

A Concours d’Élégance for automobiles was first held at Villa d’Este back in 1929, and Bugatti has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with the event. Recent highlights have included the Bugatti La Voiture Noire taking the premiere prize in the ‘Concept Cars & Prototypes’ category the last time the event was held in 2019. Models from Bugatti’s illustrious past, such as the 1937 Type 57S four-seater sports tourer, the 1934 Type 59 Grand Prix car and the 1938 Type 57SC Atlantic, have all been awarded significant accolades in recent years.

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the Bugatti EB110. The groundbreaking and first supercar of its time represents the mid-period of Bugatti’s history, when Bugatti Automobili S.p.A. was based in the famous ‘Blue Factory’ in Campogalliano in Italy under the stewardship of Romano Artioli. Introduced in 1991 to mark 110 years since the birth of Ettore Bugatti in 1881, the EB110 elevated the supercar genre to a new level. It featured a revolutionary engineering package that included a carbon fiber chassis and a 3.5-litre 12-cylinder engine with five valves per cylinder and quadruple turbochargers. The transmission was also incorporated within the engine block to create more space for cabin occupants. Exemplary grip, traction and safety were delivered by four-wheel-drive, another key D.N.A. strand that remains pivotal to today’s production Bugatti models.

The historic supercar model – a blue (originally silver painted in “Grigio Chiaro metallizzato”) EB110 SuperSport – presented at Villa d’Este in the class “The Next Generation: Hypercars of the 90s” was formerly owned by Romano Artioli. The Italian entrepreneur, who relaunched Bugatti as Bugatti Automobili S.p.A. in 1987, prior to the company’s closure in 1995, has fond memories of the development of this revolutionary supercar. “While we were at the premiere of the EB110 in Paris in 1991, the engineers back at Campogalliano were urging us to return swiftly to the Blue Factory, as they were eager to begin work on the EB110 Supersport version. Everyone was focused on reducing weight and boosting power, while keeping in mind that I was ferocious that the safety characteristics of the car be upheld.”

The final result was a quite remarkable weight reduction of nearly 150kg from the original configuration, and an increase in performance from 560PS to 612PS, with the engine developed entirely in-house at Campogalliano. Immediately after the EB110 SuperSport was presented to the world’s press at Salon de l’Automobile in Geneva, the team took the car to the Nardò circuit in the South of Italy, to carry out the homologation tests.

“After a warm-up lap we set the world record with a speed of 351 km/h and an acceleration of 3.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km,” recalls Artioli proudly. And it didn’t stop there. The car also set a speed record on snow and ice at 296km/h, while a Bugatti EB110 GT powered by natural gas achieved at top speed of 344.7 km/h.

“I left my heart in my Supersport. No other car gives the same sensation of power, control and safety in every road condition as the EB110 – and with such beautiful style. I could not be more proud for “her” to be at the Concours d’Elegance in Villa D’Este.

“The Centodieci Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este is one of the jewels in the crown of the automotive season,” explains Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. President Stephan Winkelmann. “After the event was lost to the pandemic in 2020, it is even more special for Bugatti to return to the wonderful location of Villa d’Este and present our Centodieci to customers and friends of the brand from all around the globe. And of course, the event is even more exciting with the presence of the personal Bugatti EB110 Supersport “America” owned once by Romano Artioli himself. This seminal supercar represents the second period of Bugatti’s history, and gave our designers and engineers the inspiration for the Centodieci.”

The Bugatti Centodieci was presented as a static display within the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este ‘Concept Cars & Prototypes’ area on Saturday 2nd October and again on Sunday 3rd October, the car also participated in the dynamic presentation parade.
