Pug-faced but well dressed

A 1982 Rolls-Royce Camargue that has covered just 900 miles since new

 

Named after Europe’s largest river delta in the south of France, the Camargue is a 2-door coupé introduced by Rolls-Royce Motors in March 1975. Kensington classic car specialist GraemeHunt is currently selling a 1982 example that has covered just 900 miles at a price of £62,500.

 

Built by Rolls-Royce’s coach building division, HJ Mulliner Park Ward and designed by Paolo Martin of Pininfarina, the Camargue was the most expensive car in the world at the time of its launch. Priced at £29,250, the 120-inch wheelbase car featured the first bi-level automatic air conditioning system in the world and remained in production until 1986. By then the vehicle’s price had risen to £83,122.

Graeme Hunt of GraemeHunt describes the 6.75-litre Camargue he is selling as a “most unusual example” and states on his webpage that the car is “quite simply a time warp”. The vehicle was originally sold to an individual in Guernsey when new and was transferred to his son in 2012.

 

Since having been taken out of storage recently, GraemeHunt have carried out major servicing and recommissioning works to the 5,150lb car that they are currently selling.

 

Top Gear’s James May once compared the Camargue to a “pug-faced but well-dressed” gentleman. This “remarkably kept” example will undoubtedly make just such a gentleman very happy.
