You’re hired! Lord Alan Sugar buys Rolls-Royce he owned in 1982

Alan Sugar's Rolls-Royce

Apprentice star Lord Alan Sugar has bought a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost he previously owned when it was new in 1982.

A ropey old Roller with corrosion issues and a broken odometer hiding its true mileage isn’t the hottest purchase Sugar has ever made, we suspect – but it was the first Rolls-Royce he ever owned.

The billionaire business tycoon tweeted that he’d been contacted by a car collector who’d discovered Sugar’s name in the history folder of the old Rolls. A deal was done and Sugar bought the Silver Spirit for an undisclosed sum.

The Apprentice star bragged on social media that he was hunting out a ‘classic number’ to go on the car – presumably a nod to his famous ‘AMS 1’ number plate which features on his Rolls-Royce Ghost.

Sugar’s Twitter followers were quick to respond with suggestions for a new private plate, including ‘BBC 1’, ‘4 LAN’ and ‘P1 ERS’ – a nod to his nemesis, Piers Morgan. Other fans got nostalgic over cars they’d like to buy back, including a Peugeot 205.

We hope Sugar haggled over the price of the Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit as an MOT history search reveals it’s not without its issues. Advisories for its last MOT, which it passed in October, include:

  • front metal brake pipes corroded
  • oil leak from engine
  • rear metal brake pipes corroded
  • rear suspension pipes corroded
  • metal fuel lines corroded
  • suspect speedo faulty as mileage same as last year’s mot

We suspect Lord Sugar may have been had…
