New Ooni of Ife Rolls Royce
Rolls-Royce has been considered the ultimate vehicle for decades and their Phantom ultra-luxury sedan is a testament to Rolls-Royce’s reputation. An entry-level Rolls Royce Ghost retails for about a quarter million dollars, while a top-of-the-line Phantom Coupe approaches the half million-dollar mark.
Hallmarks of Rolls-Royce cars are unsurpassed levels of comfort, unparalleled exclusivity, and the best interior materials. However, only a few people are able to afford to enjoy this level of craftsmanship. It isn't much better than Rolls-Royce Supercar. They are considered as the world’s finest automobiles. Rolls-Royce has been under the stewardship of BMW for over a decade and their Phantom sedan, launched in 2003, revived the brand from near obscurity to at least one of the foremost symbols of enormous wealth.

Just like his friend Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero who passed on in 2014, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade is a collector of vintage cars. In his private fleet there are various luxury cars but the first-class monarch loves the Royces. One of the vintage Rolls Royce in his fleet is the 1954 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III Chinese Eye FHC.
Thus, a lot of people were not really surprised when the businessman-turned-monarch acquired one of the world’s best luxury cars, a Rolls-Royce Phantom. Notably, the Phantom is a thorough mix of iconic British panache and meticulous German engineering, thanks to parent company BMW’s prudent stewardship. It is a vehicle created for the wealthy lovers of luxury.
