In 1975, Rolls-Royce Camargue was released in the United Kingdom as the most expensive production car in the world. The only model that exceeded it in price was the Rolls-Royce Phantom VI, which at the time was one of the most exclusive vehicles in the world and the car of choice of Queen Elizabeth II at the time. Upon its debut, the Rolls-Royce Camargue sported the same platform as the brand’s Corniche and Silver Shadow models, as well as the same engine. The soft edges and inclined grille, however, helped the Rolls-Royce Camargue define its own identity.
The Camargue, which was named after the Camargue region in Southern France, was conceived as such a luxury vehicle that the marque bypassed the custom practice of lowering the price of high-end European cars in the United States to compete with American and Japanese manufacturers. The Rolls-Royce Camargue did not recede in establishing itself as the ultimate luxury vehicle from 1975 to 1986. Reactions to the vehicle have varied across the years, from calling it one of the ugliest cars ever, to a vehicle with a significant presence and sophisticated style.
