1975-1986 ROLLS-ROYCE Camargue specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Rolls-Royce tried to pull something special out of the bag with the Camargue, which, at £29,250 in 1975, took over from the Corniche as the UK’s most expensive car. Based on the Shadow platform, Italian styling house Pininfarina produced the car’s razor-edged silhouette. The resemblance to its earlier Fiat 130 Coupé and Ferrari GT4 2+2 designs was palpable; not quite what was expected for a flagship Rolls! The 6750cc V8 engine had extra (undisclosed) power, too, but in ten years of production, just 530 Camargues were made with no Bentley-badged sister models.
