Harry's Thoughts

These masterpieces are one of the fastest appreciating cars in the market. Let's face it, nothing drives like a Camargue. Nestled into 450 square feet of leather, burl walnut and only two massive doors, these two-ton Rolls-Royces literally waft down the road.

THE ESSENTIALS

PRICE REDUCED!!  This is a very rare 1986 Rolls-Royce Camargue that has accumulated 37,000 miles from new and is in beautiful original condition throughout.  The Camargue coupes are one of the rarest models ever produced and this is the last year of production.  The Camargue’s Pininfarina design had been polarizing for years and now, more recently, has collectors excited about its unique lines and fantastic driving impression.  This coupe can be shown at most major concours events or used as a modern classic driver.

The Rolls-Royce Camargue was introduced in March 1975 and was produced until 1986. The coachwork of the Camargue was hand built in London at the Mulliner division and was the first Post-War model not designed inside the factory; the design is the work of Paolo Martin, the famous Italian designer who was with Pininfarina at the time.  The Camargue was the most expensive and exclusive motorcar in the world with only about 530 produced over an 11-year period. Each car required 450 sq ft of leather hides for the interior and also features aero inspired instruments and gauges.  This Camargue was one of the last ever made and benefitted from the advanced fuel injection system that was reserved for US delivery models only.

Rallye Motors, Inc. of Glen Cove, NY special ordered this Camargue for Mr. Moritemer Grossman of Manhasset, NY.  The Camargue was hand-built in May of 1986 and on July 25th, 1986, was aboard the “Falmouth Bay” to the port in New Jersey.  Mr. Grossman received the Camargue on the 21st of August, 1986 and registered it under his company name of Steven 22 Company.  Mr. Grossman was 64 years old at that time and enjoyed the motorcar until 1991. By 1994, the Camargue was acquired by Gary and Louise Witham of Camden, Maine.  The Witham’s were longtime RROC members and participated in various events and showed the Camargue regularly.

The livery is in its original Acrylic Georgian Silver (Paint Code ICI 9510437) with its Black Everflex top (Trim Code 5218).  The Silver is complemented by Brick Red dual hand applied pinstripes that have been applied by us per the factory build sheets.  The paint is in overall beautiful condition with only a few small scratches that we show in the photo gallery.  The shine and luster are beautiful.  The factory alloy wheels were reserved for the later cars and look terrific.  New BF Goodrich T/A Radials have been installed by us as well.  Overall, the exterior of the Camargue is in very nice condition and reflect the 37,000 miles of use.

The interior features beautiful Black Nuella Leather (Trim Code 5000) with Brick Red Piping (Trim Code 5004).  The leather is very soft and supple and has no cracks or tears.  The leather shows little wear.  The Black Wilton Wool carpeting is bound in Brick Red Leather and the Black Sheepskin mouton overlays are in the front and rear.  The burl walnut veneer throughout is absolutely stunning and in excellent condition.  The original Blaupunkt Washington AM/FM Cassette stereo is still installed.  The Dual Zone air conditioning has been fully serviced and works very well.  Overall, the interior is in gorgeous original condition showing little wear.

The engine compartment is nearly as new.  The venerable 6.75-liter aluminum alloy V8 engine was the longest serving V8 in automotive history.  The transmission is the three speed GM400 automatic which has proven to be very robust.  The undercarriage looks nearly as new as well with its 120-inch wheelbase.  This Camargue has benefitted from a complete a major service and new radials in preparation for sale.

The Camargue has received steady and limited use over the years.  Much of the service work has been performed by Rallye Motors, Foreign Motors West and Albers, all Rolls-Royce dealerships.  We have just completed a full major service including new radial tires.  The mileage history has been:

  • 1987:  2,248
  • 1993:  15,001
  • 1995:  16,661
  • 1997: 18,584
  • 2002:  28,432
  • 2007:  37,691

This Camargue is complete with its original Owner’s Handbook and manuals, a complete tools kit, jack and spare.  It is also accompanied by a 1986 Rolls-Royce sales brochure and complete 1986 Rolls-Royce media press kit.

Interesting Fact: The Rolls-Royce Camargue is a rare two-door saloon style vehicle that was produced from 1975 to 1986. Even though it was in production for over 10 years, there were only 531 units produced.    Overall reception to this luxury vehicle was negative due to a higher price and a design that was out of fashion for the time it was released. Despite this, the model actually features advanced technology for its day, such as a split-level climate control system that reportedly took the better part of a decade to develop. A standard 6.75-liter Rolls-Royce V8 engine was dropped into the vehicle as well, which means it has decent power.   The Camargue’s shares its platform with the Rolls-Royce Corniche and Silver Shadow. This model was actually the first of Rolls-Royce to have an inclined grille, rather than a vertical grille. As mentioned, sales were minimal for this vehicle, but it has gained popularity in the modern day as a classic car and as a remnant of the older model Rolls-Royce vehicles!
