Being a king means getting whatever you want, which is what happened here with this crazy Rolls-Royce.
The king in question was Hassan II MoroccoThose who felt their standard 1977 Rolls-Royce Carmag wasn’t cutting it.
It was a lovely car, but it had one problem: it couldn’t be driven off-road for falcon hunting. clearly.
Hunting with falcons, by the way. Not a hawk’s prey.
Perhaps that’s when Hasan remembered that he was a king and that he could do right.
He called upon renowned Swiss coachbuilder Sabero to design and build such a car at great expense and the result is what you see above.
It’s clear that the car’s ride height has been raised and off-road tires have been fitted, though we’re not sure if all-wheel-drive was fitted.
The car’s roof has been cut, the front screen has been swapped for folding, the doors have been completely removed and a custom interior has been fitted.
At the rear, what appears to be a grab handle has been fitted, which also doubles as a handy perch for king hawks.
Finally there’s the new blue paint, and body modifications like flared wheel arches to keep the massive new wheels.
In 1977 a standard Carmargue cost around £30,000 or £200,000 in today’s money, and these modifications would have cost hundreds of thousands more.
The German seller doesn’t seem to have had much luck – the car was initially on sale back in 2016, but apparently didn’t sell.
they now pasted it back on the market At 248,000 euros (£213k), there is probably hope that more people are discovering the falcon-hunting roller post-pandemic.
Despite being the world’s most expensive production car at the time, the standard Rolls-Royce Carmarque was not universally liked when it first appeared in 1975.
