THE world's most expensive new car is a £25m Rolls-Royce Droptail convertible that comes with a champagne chest.
The car giant has just released its exclusive motor after five years in the making.
Made for a mystery female buyer, the one-of-a-kind beast has two doors and only two seats – specifically designed for the husband and wife who splashed millions on it.
The couple, who have been described as "super rich", come from an art-loving champagne and fashion dynasty in France.
Their love for the bubbly beverage saw them include a champagne chest and cooler to carry their bottles and glasses, in their design.
An electro-chromatic glass roof section also means at the press of a button it can go darker or stay clear.

Named the La Rose Noire, it's inspired by the velvet-like Black Baccara Rose which is also from France as a subtle nod to their roots.
The car's red and black exterior matches the petals on the flower and is said to represent romance, according to Rolls-Royce.
Inside, complex wood work is made up of 1,603 individual, intricate and hand-made triangular pieces representing the rose petals.
It is described by Rolls-Royce as "a romantic celebration of the couple who created it".
