ROLLS ROYCE CAMARGUE £31,590
Rolls' latest, as well as being the world's most expensive car, is almost certainly the most sophisticated as well. Equipped as standard with completely automatic 'two-level' air conditioning, there are also centrally-controlled electrically-operated door locks, self-levelling suspension, stereo radio, quadraphonic tape-player, and of course, the highest-grade Connolly hide within. The graceful two-door bodywork is Pininfarina-designed but British-built, and although of coupe configuration, offers masses of legroom for the rear seat occupants.
ROLLS ROYCE SILVER SHADOW £16,543
From one of the few motor manufacturers with rising production figures, the prestigious Rolls Silver Shadow has four-door saloon coachwork by Mulliner/Park Ward, and is available in normal or long-wheelbase form. The self-levelling suspension is all-independent, and the silent-running of the light-alloy V8 engine the envy of the automotive world—and of non-Rolls Royce owners! Air-conditioning is a standard fitting, and since last year the adoption of low-profile radial tyres has improved the already noteworthy road-holding.
