A Brunei double

Two extremely opulent ex-Sultan of Brunei Rolls-Royces offered for sale

 

The 29th Sultan of Brunei and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei could never be described as frugal, but the sale of two of Rolls-Royces originally owned by him through Vintage & Prestige Fine Motorcars illustrates this South Eastern Asian royal’s truly extravagant nature.

 

The first, a 1984 Phantom VI limousine, comes in peacock blue with a pale mint blue interior and deep pile, lambs’ wool royal blue carperts. It is described as being “one of the best Rolls Royce Phantom VI limousines available in the world”. The car is equipped with “ice cold air conditioning”, a “full cocktail cabinet” with decanters and cut glass tumblers and a sound system complete with four aerials. It is is priced at £320,000 and has covered just 23,000 miles from new.

The second, a King of Denmark blue Mulliner Spur III touring limousine, is much cheaper and offered for £54,000. It has 33,000 on its clock and was one of five ordered new by His Majesty Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Wad’daulah (حج حسن البلقیة معز الدین وعدالله) in 1993. Described as featuring “the very best of Rolls-Royce ergonomics”, the car has two heated reclining rear seats “with an additional jump seat of a bodyguard or cocktail waitress depending on preference” and has a bulkhead bar with a TV, video and sound system with a ten CD changer. A refrigerator is located in the seat divide, an electric division and a cellular phone in the central arm rest provide yet further luxury.

  1. I’ll take the Mulliner Spur with the optional cocktail waitress please, and providing she is a pretty one the fully reclining seats could come in handy on the way down to Devon, nah wot I mean?

    1. it’s good to see its kitted out with decanters et al. Obviously, the old Sultan had one teetotal rule for his people and it didn’t extend to him and his entourage

  2. Sorry Chaps. Flogged the pair of them. Dare I say: “A nice little Earner Wot?”

    Got a Phantom V about to arrive for those who missed out. No evidence of Royal bums having sat in though. So sorry.
