Car buyers looking for a classic Rolls-Royce may now be able to benefit from a new scheme launched by the manufacturer, aimed at making sure its pre-owned models are every bit as good an investment as a new one.
The Rolls-Royce Provenance programme is a system whereby vehicles in the manufacturer’s range are put through a "painstaking" inspection to provide buyers with a quality car, even if it has had previous owners.
"Our customers expect the very best motor cars in the world and we are now able to offer the same support and peace of mind for approved pre-owned cars," remarked the group’s sales and marketing director Graham Grieve.
Some of the criteria established by the Provenance scheme include a full road test and a "rigorous" check of vehicle history and mileage verification.
Among the automobiles manufactured by Rolls-Royce is the luxury Phantom, one of which is thought to be owned by new Los Angeles resident David Beckham.
