A huge cabrio almost 6 meters long, made in the style of modern speed yachts. It looks similar to the classic Rolls-Royce from the 1920s and 1930s.

The back of the vehicle is equipped with flaps separated by natural wood, under which there are compartments with various picnic accessories and a refrigerator. The construction may be unfolded to form a cocktail table and a sunshade. Under the hood of the cabrio, which took four years to develop, is a twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter V12. Its power is keeping a secret.
