Will safety features cut insurance costs?

Unfortunately crash tests aren’t performed on a Rolls Royce, as it’s too expensive. But the Rolls Royce does have a number of safety features, like the ignition disable device, which stops the car from starting unless the right code is keyed in. There’s also anti whiplash head restraints and knee airbags. All this helps to bring the cost of insurance down, as the risk of theft and passenger and driver injury is less than in a car that doesn’t have these features.

Here’s a little bit of history behind the luxury….

Rolls Royce was formed by the partnership of engineer, Henry Royce and motor car dealer, Charles Rolls, in 1904. Three years later their first car, the Silver Ghost was produced and by 1913 critics were calling it ‘the best car in the world.’

And John Lennon…

One of the most famous Rolls Royce owners was John Lennon whose car became infamous as well. He had his Rolls fitted out with a TV and fridge which was not exactly common in 1965! And then two years after he took ownership, Lennon decided that he wanted it painted in psychedelic colours (which was perhaps not too surprising). Rolls Royce commissioned local artist Steve Weaver to do the job, who probably didn’t imagine for one minute how famous the car would turn out to be. 

Luxury for less

If a brand new Rolls Royce is a little bit too much of a stretch a second hand Rolls can also be a good buy. You can get a 1987 Rolls Royce Silver Spirit for around £7,800 and a 1987 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow for £12,990. But don’t forget the age of the car will affect the cost of the insurance too.
