Rolls Royce Camargue criticised even after so many years
|   Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Rolls Royce has been one of the biggest names in the automobile industry. Whenever the name of this brand comes up, one automatically thinks of lavish and luxurious cars with the bed of air riding experience. And the company has consistently produced some wonderful cars and kept up the reputation of the brand name.

When it comes to Rolls Royce, luxurious cars and exclusive items, the price does not matter. And if all the three are present in a single item, nothing can be better.
However, Rolls Royce has made some bad cars in the past, and with their latest release, Camargue has made a new record, setting new standards for overpriced poor cars.

As the saying goes, besides being the most expensive car presently available in the automobile market, the new Rolls Royce Camargue is not even pretty. Nothing about the car seems to be striking other than the overwhelming price of the car.

The Camargue comes from the company that has produced many a wonderful cars. The Rolls Royce Ghost has set new standards in terms of sales figures for the company. The Rolls Royce Phantom has also been a milestone in the history of the brand, taking the performance of cars to a whole new level. The Camargue also seems to prove a point, the car not to make.

The sales for the Rolls Royce Camargue started in the year 1975, and it was not a very popular car right from the beginning, and there is more than one reason for it. The biggest plus point of the car was the air conditioning system. It was a two tier air conditioning system, completely new and unique at that time. But the price of the car demanded a lot more than a new air conditioning system and the car failed to supply that.

The Camargue was a shorter coupe version of the Silver Shadow from Rolls Royce. However, the conversion from Silver Shadow to Camargue was a bit more complicated. So finally it turned out to be something like the old classic Lincoln, but for about 8 times the price. This was not good enough for the Rolls Royce enthusiasts at that time.

The car borrowed the 6.75 litre V8 engine form Silver Shadow. It also has the three speed GM Turbo transmission system, which has no faults as such, but the world's most expensive car needs something more.
The price of the car kept on escalating despite the poor sales figures. The production for the car stopped in 1986. By this time, the price of the car had increased manifolds and it was priced at 200,000 dollars, which is like 400,000 dollars in the present world. That is the same as the price of the Rolls Royce Phantom, but has no specific features or attributes to put it even in the same class.

Even the rarity of the model in present days is not valued as such. Bernie Ecclestone sold a Rolls Royce Camargue back from the days at a price of 33,600 dollars a few years back.
