Take the final journey in style

For the ultra-rich folks who want to make their final journey in style, this is for you. Custom hearse builder, Biemme Special Cars, has converted a Rolls-Royce Phantom into the world’s most luxurious and expensive funeral car, called the B12. Set to be officially unveiled at the Tan Expo funeral home show in Bologna, Italy, the B12 cost about $662,000 – in USD, not hell notes. It will go on sale shortly after its debut.

Biemme has stretched the wheelbase and raised the roof to accommodate a casket. The hearse is 23 feet long, making it three feet longer than a Phantom Extended Wheelbase. On the European model, the rear compartment gets large windows.

The interior is as luxurious as any standard Rolls-Royce and has blue-tinted windows and LED lightings. In the past, Biemme has built hearses based on cars such as the Mercedes CLS four door coupe and Mercedes E-Class.

Power continues to come from a Rolls-Royce 6.75-litre V12 with a self-leveling air suspension. The suspension may be beefed up to cope with the hearse’s added weight, not to mention the weight of a casket. The car is made entirely from aluminium with over 600 assembled parts and over 650 feet of welding.

Maybe World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) CEO, Vince McMahon, could consider getting one of this for his company’s casket match, if he bears to see the Rolls-Royce getting smashed up by chairs and sledge hammers.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
