Rolls-Royce Ghost Depreciation

A Rolls-Royce Ghost will depreciate 29% after 5 years and have a 5 year resale value of $308,444.

Value disappears quickly for a Ghost when new, and the first owner can expect to lose $80,000-90,000 in the first two years alone. That trend continues through the first five years, losing a whopping $150,000 on average. After that, however, Ghosts maintain their value rather well, and depreciation slows considerably. Given that styling changes are relatively subtle, and the ride will always be like floating on a cloud, we recommend finding one that is at least a few years old, has only been used on sunny days to drive in the park, and is polished and put to bed nightly. Plus, no one is going to ask you what model year it is, as they'll be more interested in the full-sized umbrella that is secretly hidden in the rear door.

The chart below shows the expected depreciation for the next 10 years. These results are for vehicles in good condition, averaging 12,000 miles per year. It also assumes a selling price of $434,980 when new. Enter your purchase price, expected ownership period and estimated miles driven annually.

Buying a Rolls-Royce Ghost New vs Used

If you purchase a used Rolls-Royce Ghost that is 2 years old, then you could save $38,017 compared to buying new, and still have a relatively new model with plenty of useful life remaining. If you plan to keep this vehicle for 3 years then your total cost of depreciation would be $88,519. Try other age and ownership length combinations, or different vehicles to see if you can find depreciation sweetspots where this cost is the lowest. Hint: Try vehicles between 2 and 4 years old, as brand new vehicles depreciate quickly. Also, if this is a recently released model and buying a few years old isn't possible, consider another vehicle, or perhaps wait until more used Ghost models become available.
