If you’re looking for a bargain-priced Rolls-Royce, you’ve found it. Today, I’m listing the five cheapest Rolls-Royce models of various different models or body styles, proving that you can drive around in the ultimate luxury car without spending a fortune. Of course, just because you buy a cheap used Rolls-Royce doesn’t mean it’ll stay a cheap used Rolls-Royce, as ownership costs will surely be expensive, but it’s still fun to dream.
The cheapest Rolls-Royce on Autotrader is this 1987 Silver Spur, which is listed for just $8,500. Rolls-Royce models from this era tend to be surprisingly cheap, on account of the fact that they employ old technology and they’re expensive to own, but this is unusually inexpensive. This 1987 Silver Spur is offered by a private seller in Canton, Georgia, with 44,000 miles for just $8,500.
Although Rolls-Royce sedans tend to lose value forever, convertible models stay surprisingly pricey. Very few Rolls-Royce convertible models are currently listed for sale for less than $100,000, and this is the cheapest — at $39,995, or around five times more expensive than the cheapest sedan. It’s a 1982 Corniche finished in white with a beige leather interior, and it’s offered by a private seller in the Washington, D.C., area with 44,000 miles for $39,995.
Although there are many Rolls-Royce models for under $30,000, many cheap Rolls models are older — and they feel like older cars inside. The Silver Seraph, however, is a decidedly modern Rolls-Royce, with modern luxuries and comforts. This particular one is still cheap, however, as it’s offered by a private seller in South Haven, Michigan, with 44,000 miles for $25,990.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost is the brand’s entry-level sedan, and it debuted in 2010 to provide a cheaper alternative to the full-size Phantom — and something of a competitor to the popular Bentley Flying Spur. Values of the Ghost have stayed high as demand is relatively strong, but this one is the cheapest Ghost on Autotrader: It’s offered by Karma Cars in San Diego with 54,000 miles for $99,998 — one of just two Ghost models listed for under $100,000.
The Phantom is Rolls-Royce’s well-known, highly imposing luxury sedan. It’s been on sale in its latest incarnation since the mid-2000s, and early models are getting cheap — but nowhere near as cheap as the Phantom’s predecessors, the Silver Seraph and the Silver Spirit. This particular Phantom is the cheapest on Autotrader, and it’s offered by Classic Motor in the Los Angeles area with 63,000 miles for $79,880 — still big money, but right in line with Phantom pricing.
