If you remember, he didn't buy that car, he bought a brand new version of it that was due to be delivered 3 days after he ordered it!

Still can’t believe the carpet of the rolls wears like that! Obviously couldn’t afford the floor mats.

I feel like if it's a shitty purchase to make at £137k + unless you're a millionaire. What's the point? It will surely just lose value as you use it. I would rather invest that money and see it come back. Feel like flash cars (even though I think it's gross) should be saved until you're rolling in it.

I guess it depends how much you like cars and how much money you're willing to waste on them!

But a used rolls which has done about 40% of its value in the first few years is not the worst financial decision you could make. You'd lose more buying a new s63 or 750li add to that the rolls is a nicer place to be during the time you have it and it can be justified!

The Mulsanne is an example of an absolute bargain, probably the best barge you can buy for the money, 7-8 years ago new they were around £220-250k, with less than 35k miles on them you can find very clean examples for less than £60k. Similar cost to a base S class, A8, 7 series etc, wont shit 50% of its purchase price in the next 3 years and again is a much nicer place to be.

How do the running costs of a Mulsanne compare to the others you mentioned?
