The right hand drive car – one of just eight manufactured – is in excellent condition having been subject to a £300,000 restoration by The Chelsea Workshop in the 1990s and has won many trophies. It is for sale with Essex based Vintage & Prestige Fine Motorcars.

 

Though Madonna’s marriage rolled into the buffers in 2008, this Rolls-Royce will go on for many years yet. It truly would be at home cruising on the French Riviera.

  1. Matthew this is a magnificent car. A friend of mine something similar and now regales me the huge cost of keeping it. Can’t be kept on the street; has to have a second car and other irksome restrictions,

    • You’re right about it being “magnificent” Peter. I’d love to add this to my collection. A shame I haven’t got £450k going spare.
