1979 Rolls-Royce Camargue Sedan

Introduced in 1975 and based on the Silver Shadow II platform, the Camargue was indisputably the top of the line in Rolls-Royce’s luxury offering and in fact was the most expensive production car in the world at nearly $150,000. A two-door coupe named for the vast delta of the Rhone River in the South of France, its distinct design by Pininfarina set it apart as an exclusive and highly desirable personal luxury car with enhanced performance from its 412 cubic inch V-8 engine with approximately 220 more than adequate horsepower. Aluminum doors and boot lid helped keep weight in check and contributed to its continent-crossing performance and comfort. In 1979, the Camargue was updated with the Silver Spirit’s new semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension with coil springs and automatic leveling. The Camargue was also the first car in the world offered with dual level automatic climate control. Its integrated headlights and the simple, clean lines of the Pininfarina-designed bodywork compliment the prominent grille, which is slanted at a subtle but elegant incline. With only about 530 examples built during an eleven-year production run, Camargues are very rarely seen, and this 1979 example is one of the finest, if not the finest, in existence. Finished in white with a black Connolly leather interior, it shows only––– 15,000 original miles and truly looks like a six-month-old car. The wood dashboard, aircraft style white-on-black gauges and trim are exceptional, as are the paint and interior. It is well sorted mechanically as well, making for an exquisite and amazingly luxurious motorcar. Factory original and still presenting like a new automobile, this is an outstanding specimen of an exclusive limited production coachbuilt Rolls-Royce coupe.
