$3,000 for a gas guzzler?  What in the heck is that?  I used to think Phantoms were cool.  I'd be embarrassed to get in one now.

I guess if one has a car that cost $427,300. they are not worried about making a mortgage payment on their $250,000 home?  Excess in excess. I think this is what fuels the fire that burns in class envy? Oh heck, if the Queen can have one, why not me too?  I will start saving my pennies. :)

I like that the manufacturer included "Bamboo headlining" to be eco- friendly, or so the owner could feel he contributed to the environmental movement?

Hi Rich:

Wow much?  Geez, I'm glad that the interior & exterior colors are Free Of Charge!

If you have to ask the price you can't afford it!

I took a ride in a Phantom a little while back, I have to admit that it was a different experience.  If you are buying this car a 3000 gas guzzler tax is probably not on your radar.  What an expensive car.

Good Morning Richard - It's a house on wheels...  Seriously, can we say excess?  I'd rather have a Bentley anyway :-}

and to think my team leader just bought a house for 4,800.

Wow!!  That cost a litle more than my Dodge Ram. :)

Richard - talk about sticker shock, I have yet to buy a vehicle that costs more than my first home ($27,900 in 1977) but I have come close. I believe I will pass on this one.

Richard, I'm glad you got that picture taken before you hit the floor! Wow...it would be so embarrassing to drive that car!

In 1980 I can remember going to a new car show. Up untill that point I had fatasized about owning a Porsche. I do not even remember the model now that was then on display.

I only remember that when I first saw it I told my wife thats it! Thats the car I have been talking about.

As we approached this gem of a beauty my Jaw dropped to the ground!

The price of the car some $35,000 ( a princely sum in 1980 ) was the same price that I had paid for my 4 bedroom home on 2 acres with a river view.

I never gave another thought to the Porsche again.

Suzanne, I think the gas guzzler tax is for cars that don't meet a certain miles per gallon. Yeah, that's why I didn't buy one :)

Gail, Looks like you would have to fill Texas with pennies to get that one.

Steve, I though being "green" only applied to the little people. Not ones who can afford a Rolls.

Toula, That kind of surprised me too. Free and Rolls Royce don't seem to go in the same sentence.

Cindy, I was just checking since I'm going to need a tax write off this year.

Morgan, I've never had the experience of driving in one but for $400K that better be a great ride.

Debbie, Even for a house on wheels thats a pretty nice neighborhood.

Missy, Most people can buy a house cheaper than this.

Jared, I'm guessing you could have bought a Dodge Ram for every day of the week and still had money left over.

Mike, I'm with you on that. My first house was $30K and none of my cars have made it that high...yet.

Linda, It was a very plush carpet in that section of the auto show.

Herb, The Porsche's were on the expensive side but not anything like this.

Posted by Richard Iarossi, Crofton MD Real Estate, Annapolis MD Real Estate (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) almost 10 years ago

What a bargain! lol!!!

Must be nice to be able to just buy it and not even think about the cost...

It doesn't even come with a navigation system. I guess the chauffeur has to know their way around. Maybe next year when the market gets a little better. lol

I can remember when a Rolls Royce was a $100,000 car, and I thought they were expensive back then too!  I guess if a car makes you "speechless" we can't afford it :-)

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) almost 10 years ago

I've never looked at the stickers on these really expensive cars.  I'm just not in that tax bracket!!

Hi Richard, I think I would be speechless too!  Do you know how many single family rental homes I could buy with that kind of money, that would give me income each month?

I guess i'll have to cancel my order.  I can't afford to spend more that $395,000 :)  Must be nice!

Richard, one is not buying a car, one is buying luxury. There is no price to luxury, but for a car its outrageously priced.

What many people do not realize is Rolls Royce is in the luxury business, not the car business, big difference.

I won't be buying one in my lifetime.  Sheeeeez!

Posted by Marlene Pellegrini almost 10 years ago

Richard - Wow. Wonder if what kind of discounts they give for a cash buyer? Hey, everybody is looking for a deal - right? ~Rita I just need a car period, mine broke :( - obviously nowhere near this price point LOL.

Rich, I'm not a car person, and a Chevrolet suits me perfectly.  It is reliable and not bad looking.  As long as my car runs, I keep it.  The only reason I got a new car in 2007, was because my son needed a car and if someone was getting the newer one, it wasn't going to be my 18 year old!  To pay this much for a car when there are truly better things to do with your money, like helping someone else, is sickening to me.  It brings to mind the expression "more money than sense".

I want one!

Rich,

I'm with you. For a "his" and "hers" it'll run you a cool million. :)
