Rolls-Royce Ca­mar­gue

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Talk to the trade and they’ll tell you that de­mand for Rolls-Royces has sta­bilised over the past few years – with deal­ers strug­gling par­tic­u­larly with Sil­ver Shad­ows in av­er­age con­di­tion – but the two-door Ca­mar­gue’s been qui­etly buck­ing the trend. Had you bought a de­cent one 15 years ago you’d have paid £20k-£25k for the priv­i­lege, but nowa­days you’ll be shelling out up­wards of £30k for the same car, and con­sid­er­ably more for some of the con­cours

and dealer ex­am­ples we’ve seen.

THE CCW VIEW

This is a case of the mar­ket wak­ing up to a pre­vi­ously un­der­ap­pre­ci­ated Rolls-Royce – there was a time when its more an­gu­lar styling put many a buyer off but now there’s a younger gen­er­a­tion of buy­ers who ap­pre­ci­ate what a won­der­ful com­bi­na­tion Crewe crafts­man­ship, a 6.75-litre V8 and Pin­in­fa­rina styling is. We reckon that prices could rise a lit­tle fur­ther still. David Simister
