Beyonce and Jay-Z are one of the world's most famous power couples, meaning they can probably afford not only the finer things in life, but the finest.
And it's believed that their latest extravagance may be a custom Rolls-Royce, reported to have cost a staggering $28 million - making it the world's most expensive car.
Rolls-Royce recently unveiled a bespoke Boat Tail convertible that had been envisioned and commissioned by 'extraordinary clients', saying the build was the company's 'most ambitious project yet'.
The luxury four-seat ride features a rear deck that contains a picnic set and a double refrigerator that houses the clients' favorite vintages of Armand de Brignac', which can be rapidly cooled to 'precisely six degrees'.
While the wealthy clients have not been named, some people have started connecting the dots to speculate that Beyonce and Jay-Z are the lucky owners - having noticed a number of potential giveaways.
The car also features two-sided timepieces - one for a man, one for a woman - from luxury watchmakers Bovet 1822, which can be either worn or used as clocks in the car.
Rolls-Royce also says the car honors 'the owners' lifelong reverence for life at sea', with its nautical form evoking 'graceful J-class yachts' - supposedly relevant as the couple are said to regularly holiday along the French Riviera.
Another clue comes from the champagne reference, as Armand de Brignac was bought by a company led by Jay-Z back in 2014 - although he sold 50 percent of his stake to Moët Hennessy in February.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls- Royce Motor Cars, said in a statement: "Boat Tail is our most ambitious project yet. Coachbuild, in collaboration with its clients, has ignored all preconceived notions of possibility and set a new standard. This is Bespoke at its purest."
