Here is my 86 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit. Alpine white over deep red leather and wood interior. I have owned this car a long time. 10 years at least. Factory R/R Chrome wheels. Factory phone. Folding wood picnic tables in the back seat. Beverly Hills custom dealer ordered car when new. Cost over $120,000 new back in 1986! The car still has the "Look" today. Body, interior and paint are original and in very good condition. I used to drive this car to work, dinner parties, shows, ect several times a week and the car never let me down. About 5 years ago, I parked it in my garage and have not used it since. Everything worked fine on the car when I parked it. I start it once in a while and back it out of the garage to wash the dust off then I park it again. It still starts right up with a charged battery, however, I would not chance driving the car again until everything was checked over by a Rolls Royce service man just for the fact that the car has not seen the road in a long time. These are current photos I took of the car last summer. I would say it's going to at least need a full service before you try to drive it. As I said, the car is in good condition, however, do not expect to jump in and drive it home. Again, the car never let me down but since it's been sitting for 5 years, it would be wise to bring a trailer. After thinking it over, I just do not have the time to enjoy this car anymore, I am building a new house and we have two new babies so the money will help finish the house. My reserve is more than fair. The reserve is lower than you might think and I really want the Rolls to go to a good home. The car has a little famous history to it. A current and now famous reality show star rode to their prom in this car before they became known! I was the driver. I will disclose this information only if you ask. This is alot of car for the money. Serious bidders only. Ebay is not a game. It takes time and money to run an auction. If you bid, be for real please. If you bid and win, you own the car period. If you are new to Ebay and do not know the rules of bidding or, if you have little or zero feedback, please contact me first before you bid. I reserve the right to remove a fishy bid. My feedback is 100% Positive since I signed up on Ebay over 10 years ago. Thank you for your interest.
A cursory look at the top of the automobile market would suggest that the world's carmakers are gunning it full steam ahead into a new stratosphere of ultra-luxury and high-performance utility vehicles. After all, companies like Bentley and Maserati are preparing to launch their very first crossovers, while established players like Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover keep producing ever more expensive sport-utes of their own. But that's not the case across the board.
Rolls-Royce, for example, has yet to receive the green light to start working on its proposed CUV project. Though the dimensions of its sedans may already eclipse those of some crossovers, this would be the first time that Goodwood would produce a utility of its own. But while the British automaker's financial performance may have earned it a degree of autonomy, the final call may still come down to parent company BMW, which just might be waiting to see how Bentley fares with its upcoming crossover - and how much money it brings in to the Volkswagen Group - before deciding on whether or not it should proceed.
However, Rolls-Royce may not be alone in waiting for its German parent company to approve its high-priced ute. It's been two and a half years since we first laid eyes on the Lamborghini Urus (pictured), but the Italian automaker reportedly has not yet received approval from its parent company Audi and the greater Volkswagen Group to proceed with development and production. Envisioned to share its platform with the next Volkswagen Touareg, Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and the production version of the Bentley EXP 9 F concept, the high-riding Lamborghini was originally set to reach production as the marque's third model line in 2017. But while Audi drags its feet - potentially waiting to see how the Bentley version pans out - the Urus' launch keeps getting pushed back, if it's ever to be made at all.
Rap star and exotic-car enthusiast, Rick Ross, had a double-close call on Monday morning, escaping harm in what appears to be an attempted drive-by shooting.
According to Fort Lauderdale Police, Ross was driving his 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost (pictured) with his girlfriend, Shateria Moragne-el, as a passenger at 5:00 AM on Monday. An unnamed gunman in another vehicle opened fire on Ross' car, causing the rapper to turn a corner, lose control of the vehicle and eventually crash into the wall of an apartment complex. Neither Ross nor Moragne-el was injured, despite reports that "dozens" of ammo casings were found at the crime scene.
Ross had been out celebrating his birthday on Sunday night; at nearby restaurant Floridian and a club called LIV in Miami Beach. Reports indicate that the restaurant was also the target of gunfire - some 15 shots that "sounded like they came from a high-powered rifle."
Rolls-Royce may be working on a new, mega-powerful roadster for 2017. CAR reports the convertible would conceivably boast a V16 engine. Of course, the report gets a little muddled here, with CAR saying the engine would be very similar to that of the one that powers the Bugatti Veyron - the French machine makes use of a W16 mill. Even so, the article says the Rolls-Royce version could put down around 700 horsepower. Design wise, we're told the creation will feature a suitably long nose with the passenger compartment pushed far to the rear.
Of course, 2017 is a long way off, and the thought of a 16-cylinder, naturally aspirated engine bowing under the crush of ever more stringent government fuel efficiency and emission regulations seems unlikely. We'll just put this one in the wait-and-see file for the time being. In the interim, you can hop over to CAR for a closer look at the magazine's rendering of the would-be roadster. If a V16 convertible does happen, look for a smug look on Rowan Atkinson's face.
Oh, and about that SUV? There's not much to report, though CAR does note that officials are keeping a close eye on rival Bentley and its plans for a luxury utility vehicle. Rolls brand boss Harald Krüger has even gone so far as to admit "we're regularly debating whether to take action."
