Yep, I know it’s hard to believe, but you too could be the pilot of this 3-ton tank for somewhere between $9,000-$20,000 (based on condition). Rolls-Royce is notorious for depreciation, but the beauty of this ride is no one knows how low it goes. Originally in 1985 this ride cost $109,000 and a 2012 version goes for $380,000! So, most people won’t know that you paid the same as two of these for your insane whip!
Rolls-Royce’s are DOPE!!!! Most people can’t even say that they have ridden in one, and you could own one! Here’s what you need to do though to fully appreciate the double R. You gotta get a driver.
The reason you need a driver is because Rolls-Royces of yore (and possibly today) just aren’t exciting machines to drive. I’ve driven a few 1990’s versions and frankly it isn’t much more exciting than driving a Cadillac Coupe De Ville of the same year. The cars are really heavy, the shocks are super soft, and the steering wheel is bus-like. All of this makes for an awesome ride for the back seat passenger, and if you can afford a RR from the start, you probably have a driver. In fact, you are too busy buying and selling people, drinking decades old scotch, and reading foreign news, to ever sit behind the wheel. When was the last time you were in a car that had fold down airplane tables?
As with most of the Millionaire Cars on a Manager Budget, you should definitely get used to turning a wrench…and if you are really smart, you will replace the Rolls-Royce engine/transmission all-together with a modern Chevy 350 setup. Then you have a reliable, cheap ride, that people will be begging you to cruise in.
You know they are ill because every Sultan and Sheik has at least one!
