Rolls-Royce is used to marketing unusual models. Whether mass-produced or limited-edition, a Rolls is (and remains) the ultimate in luxury motoring.
If the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail – the most expensive car in the world – produced in only three copies made a lot of noise during its presentation, the one on sale on the internet today should attract collectors from all over the world. This is the Rolls-Royce Camarague, owned by Hassan II (King of Morocco) in the past.
This copy is, as you can imagine, not original. It was sent in 1977 to Sbarro to modify it so the King could use his Rolls for falcon hunting. The workshop then raised the ride height, removed the doors, and modified the windshield so that it could be folded down.
Sbarro also installed wider tires for riding on the desert dunes and widened the wheel arches so that the oversized tires can fit there. You will also notice that the exhaust outlets have been positioned on the left rear side.
Inside, the King’s Rolls-Royce is covered in leather stitched with a blue thread echoing the body color. In case of strong heat, the car could be covered with a fabric hood.
We don’t know if Sbarro made any changes to the engine and chassis. However, the ad states that this Camarague has a 6.75-liter V12 engine, which is the original engine – and that it develops 212 hp. We also know that this unique model has traveled a total of 36,000 km. It is currently for sale for the sum of €248,000.
After some research, we discover that it was sold in 2016 in Germany for 248,000 euros according to Bring a Trailer. The past years have therefore not allowed it to gain in value.
