We have fairly modest dreams when it comes to ferrying our remains to our final resting place. After all, it can't cost that much to rent the The Oscar Meyer Wienermobile for a few hours. Should you have slightly more expensive tastes, there's always this Rolls-Royce Phantom Hearse. The specialty vehicle is set to be unveiled at the Tan Expo funeral home show in Bologna, Italy. With 23 feet of length from stem to stern, this Phantom is longer than even the long-wheelbase version of the sedan. Interestingly enough, designers retained the rear doors for additional live passengers while incorporating a large rear cargo area for the dearly departed.

According to builder Biemme Special Cars, the vehicle's tail is constructed entirely of aluminum using over 600 bits and pieces. The same 6.75-liter V12 engine found in the standard Phantom, which means your earthly remains will get to graveside with the help of 453 horsepower.

How much will it cost? Biemme hasn't handed out a specific figure just yet beyond saying the vehicle will likely fetch more than €500,000. That's $663,950 at current conversion rates.

      A nearly 7 liter V12 and all they could manage is 453 horsepower? I understand that this thing was never even considered to be a barnstormer, but that's a pretty pathetic hp per liter figure. I am sure it has a boatload of low end grunt though.

      Not sure I'd want to ride in the back seat while my loved one was being ferried behind me. That might really freak me out

      Somebody may have already jumped on this, but man, that would make one awesome El Camino. Just picture it without the big glass dome thing on it's butt and there you go.
