Want Meek Mill’s 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom? It will cost you. The good news is that the money will go toward helping others.
Celebrities from the sports world and beyond are participating in the #AllInChallenge, an online auction of experiences with and property of celebrities. All of the proceeds from the auction lots, hosted by Fanatics, a licensed sports merchandise retailer, benefit five charities: Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, America’s Food Fund, World Central Kitchen, and Feeding America.
In a video on the auction site, Mill (real name Robert Williams) calls the Phantom, “my biggest car, my favorite car.” Following up on the video, Mill posted a picture of the car on his Instagram feed parked outside a.kitchen in Philadelphia.
Rolls-Royce confirmed the details of the car for AutomotiveMap. It’s an eighth-generation model that, though covered in black accents, does not officially wear the Black Badge label as there is no Phantom Black Badge product line. A request for additional information on the car is pending.
The opening bid for the model was $200,000. Currently, bidding is up to $310,000. The auction ends on April 29.
Mills’ Phantom joins other lots by sports superstars including Tom Brady, Magic Johnson, Shaq, and Peyton Manning who are offering fan experiences, unique vacation opportunities, and wine making class, among other options.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom was redesigned in 2018. It comes in two variants: standard and extended wheelbase. The model is available with a host of bespoke appointments, making it truly customizable before it even leaves the factory.
Rolls-Royce lists the starting price of the Phantom at $450,000. However, company representatives have confirmed that very few, if any, actually sell at that price point. Most buyers chose to personalize their model via their Rolls-Royce boutique.
