San Francisco Rolls Royce Limousines | San Francisco Travel Blog
A businessman has invested many hundreds of thousands of dollars in what he aspires will be the “wackiest Rolls-Royce Phantom ever.” Robert Allan, 62, of Marbella, Spain and other locations is a retired businessman with very expensive tastes in automobiles. His Rolls-Royce Phantom, which has been described as the most modified Phantom in the world, has just arrived at his Marbella estate after weeks of what can only be described as a most unusual makeover. Mr. Allan commissioned London-based car dealer SuperVettura and designer Pablo Rabiella to customize the limo, and all we can say is it doesn’t look anything like the San Francisco Rolls-Royce limo rentals in our fleet.
A pair of Rolls-Royce limousines commissioned by Harrods, the world-famous department store, has been scheduled for sale on the auction block. If the reserve prices are met or surpassed, the limos will be sold in Bonhams’ Paris sale of Motor Cars at the Grand Palais on February 5, 2011. Harrods bought one of the Rolls-Royce limousines, a 1963 Rolls-Royce Phantom V once owned by Edward, Duke of Kent, at an auction in 1996. Harrods had the limo completely refurbished inside and out with the store’s trademark color, Harrods Green. This Rolls is expected to sell for between $190,000 to $250,000 US.
The new and very shapely Bentley Mulsanne has received the “Best Limousine for the Red Carpet” prize at the glittering Gulf Connoisseur Awards ceremony. The annual event was held at the Armani Hotel in Dubai and featured many exceptional limos including the Maybach 57 and the Rolls-Royce Phantom, both runners-up to the Mulsanne.
