Buying a new Rolls-Royce can be a bit more to bite off than most can chew. So for those looking to put Goodwood's finest in their driveway but without the means for a new model, the company has announced its new certified pre-owned car program.

Similar to such programs available from other automakers, Provenance involves rigorous inspections undertaken by factory-trained technicians and a comprehensive two-year warranty with round-the-clock roadside assistance. Which is a good thing, because while you may want to drive a Phantom, you wouldn't want it to give up the Ghost on your drive up to the country club. Details in the press release after the jump.

PRE-OWNED ROLLS-ROYCE SCHEME OFFERS UNRIVALED PEACE OF MIND

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced the latest details for its approved programme for pre-owned cars. Rolls-Royce Provenance offers unrivaled peace of mind with its industry-leading programme which includes fully inclusive servicing.

Each car has to meet exacting criteria set by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Factory-trained technicians conduct a painstaking inspection procedure, including a full road test, to ensure that every Provenance car reaches the highest standards prior to delivery. Cars must have been maintained in strict adherence to Rolls-Royce servicing requirements to be considered and are only sold through the international network of authorised Rolls-Royce Motor Cars dealers.

When buying a Rolls-Royce Provenance motor car, customers are protecting their investment. As well as successfully completing a rigorous pre-delivery inspection and preparation, each Provenance Rolls-Royce offers the reassurance of an independently obtained vehicle history and unlimited mileage verification, together with a minimum 24 month warranty, fully inclusive servicing and 24-hour roadside assistance.

Jolyon Nash, Director, Sales & Marketing, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars said, "We are delighted to announce the latest details for Rolls-Royce Provenance. Our customers expect the very best motor cars in the world and we are pleased to be able to offer the same support and peace of mind for approved pre-owned cars that we offer for new vehicles."

      If you need to worry about buying CPO, you probably shouldn't own a Rolls Royce.

        Yeah, because rich people love wasting money and hate stuff like warranties against expenses incurred by potential, future problems. Build wealth through buying blind and hoping for the best, that's what I always say! I would never do anything so foolish as to buy a rapidly depreciating mechanical contraption like an auto-mobile that comes with a warranty. Extended warranty? Pshaw! It's my stated goal to spend as much money as possible maintaining every car I own. I even fix things that aren't broken! Huzzah and twenty-three skidoo, you young whippersnappers!

        Not really, it's an easy way to save a good $75-100K on the car. It's not that you can't afford to buy it new, just that you'd get the same car for less money. I'd get mine new since I'd want all sorts of zany things(rose gold trim instead of chrome for example), but if you just want something that's white with a tan interior that is easy to find.

      Will "Provenance" also divulge who owned the car before you?

      Now this is a beautiful car. Pretty amazing that you can get this CPO. What other luxury cars will follow those mold? Caleb

        Um - Rolls Royce is following the pack since most other Luxury manufacturers have had CPO programs for decades...

      Only way to buy one. I recently saw a 2 year old Phantom with 15,000 miles on it for . . . $164,000. Less than half its original price. Think of it as $10 a mile depreciation for the first owner.

      Usually, you see used Rolls Royce cars in super luxury car buyer magazines like Dupont registry. I think having a certified pre-owned program hurts the image, but, when you really think about it, what else is to be done with a used RR?
