Buying a second-hand Rolls-Royce – What’s on offer

Rolls-Royce represents the pinnacle of luxury in the automotive world, and their price tags reflects this.

In fact, the brand often does not even tell you their new cars’ asking prices – because if you need to ask, you probably can’t afford it.

Luckily, the second-hand market provides us with a rand value for these fine automobiles.

It does seem that the older Rolls-Royces are not fan-favourites, as they tend to be much cheaper than the newer models we’re all familiar with.

They are still extremely luxurious, however.

No matter which one you get, if it has the Spirit of Ecstasy on the nose you’ll be caressed in opulent leather seats, touch premium veneers, and drive around with a massive engine.

The market

To see what is on offer in the local second-hand market, we turned to online car classifieds.

What we found is that in South Africa, old Rolls-Royce cars have prices equaling those of new entry-level crossovers.

A few adventurous owners also thought it wise to treat their Rolls-Royce vehicles to aftermarket upgrades – such as Mansory body kits and Forgiato wheels.

These models usually go for a premium, as a result.

Mid-1980s to early 2000s models were quite difficult to find, however, as we were only able to find one.
