Rolls-Royce has long represented the pinnacle of automotive luxury. These cars are also famous for consistently being some of the most expensive vehicles on the planet. However, a few years (or decades) of depreciation can change that and make these swanky luxury cars more affordable than you might expect.
We’ve put together a list of some of the cheapest Rolls-Royce models for sale on Autotrader. Rather than just a list of the five cheapest Silver Spirits, we’ve found the cheapest examples of the most budget-friendly Rolls models. The cars on this list span 20 years, and most of them have an asking price under $40,000.
Here are the cheapest Rolls-Royce models for sale on Autotrader.
1. 1984 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit — $11,495
The Silver Spirit is the go-to cheap Rolls-Royce. It’s affordable because it has relatively high production numbers, and it was around for 20 years. The one you see here is a Mark I model powered by the famous 6.75-liter L410 V8 engine linked to a GM-sourced 3-speed automatic transmission. Unfortunately, there’s only one photo in the listing, but it looks like it’s in decent condition. See Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit models for sale
2. 1985 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur — $13,950
The Silver Spur was the long-wheelbase version of the Silver Spirit. That means it’s a more limo-like luxury sedan with ritzy back seats. The second row feels like flying first class in 1985 with tray tables, footrests, a big center console, and of course, personal lighters and ashtrays. This one has a little wear on the front seats and the dash, but it’s quite a car at this price point. See Rolls-Royce Silver Spur models for sale
3. 1999 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph — $39,994
Step into a more modern Rolls-Royce with this handsome Silver Seraph. It came out in 1999 as the replacement for the short-wheelbase Silver Spirit with a curvier design, a more high-tech interior, and plenty of high-end luxury features (by 90s standards) like heated rear seats, Connolly quilted leather upholstery, and adaptive suspension. The BMW M73 5.4-liter V12 under the hood makes the Silver Seraph the first V12-powered Rolls since the 1939 Phantom III. See Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph models for sale
4. 1985 Rolls-Royce Corniche — $57,799
This Rolls-Royce Corniche is a stylish convertible. While the average bystander might not recognize a Silver Spirit as a Rolls-Royce, the Corniche has more traditionally inspired styling that stands out as a high-end luxury car. It’s mechanically similar to the Silver Spirit with the same V8 and GM transmission. We love the blue accents on the tan leather, but the aftermarket stereo is a little gaudy.

5. 2004 Rolls-Royce Phantom — $79,995
The seventh-generation Rolls-Royce Phantom is becoming a popular used luxury sedan for enthusiasts with deep pockets. The cheapest one on Autotrader as of this writing is just under $80,000 putting it in the same price range as a new Lexus LS, but you can’t get suicide doors or a V12 with a Lexus. This one has some miles on it for a Rolls but appears well-maintained and in excellent condition. See Rolls-Royce Phantom models for sale
