Riding In Style At a Snail's Pace
Updated: Feb 20
1985 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit
Sold for: $11,000.00
Market Value: $19,155.00
This 1985 Rolls-Royce is the epitome of pure opulence, a full red leather hand-built interior wrapped in a deep black body powered by a 6.75 Liter V8 producing 220hp. While you might not be going anywhere quickly in this overweight, underpowered metal and leather hunk, you're going everywhere in style. Cult Cars estimate that this car used more cows in the production of the interior than an average slaughterhouse sees in a year. All of this flowing, bumbling luxury comes at the cost of a used Honda Accord, I know which I would rather drive.
While a coach-built British car might not be the underpinnings of the word ‘reliable’, we are prepared to throw reliability out of the window in return for feeling like royalty in the Taco Bell drive-through, albeit flooding the entire County with leaking coolant. Say what you will about LS swaps being boring, but we think this is a prime candidate for a pro-charged LS3.
The downside to owning a vehicle like this is you must now refer to everyone as ‘The Peasants’. And you have to roll up to vehicles of the same caliber and say, "Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?"
