The first buyers of Rolls Royce


Hardly has the events crew packed up than the town was abuzz with who bought the first Rolls Royce as the ultra-luxury car brand was launched in the country.

This is the first time the de luxe wheels is being sold here.

Television’s mega-millionaire Willie Revillame was the first to buy (P39 million?), followed by captain of industry and business, Manny Pangilinan.

Indeed, the Philippines is on the luxury radar in the region.

It is said that luxury brand Chanel is opening, and so are high-end beauty retail chain Sephora and Ralph Lauren lifestyle store.

    At least now we know that Willie is not matulungin sa mahirap, ginamit lang ang mga mahirap at awa factor para sumikat atyumaman ng sobra sobra. Sorry nalang samga TFC at OFW na naguyo niya akala nila sincere siya sa pagtulong di palabas lamang.


      parang kelangan mo mag-aral ulit.. di mo alam ang logic eh… mali-mali kasi… kung bumili ba ng rolls royce ibig sabihin agad di na sya matulungin sa mahirap? wag kasi puro inggit.. magsumikap ka

    Who ever buys a Roller- good for them. There are certain responsibilities of course. One NEVER drives oneself, one has a RR trained chauffeur [in uniform of course] just to be seen driving is a bit tacky. The other thing being bandied about is the question of price, if one has to ask or even mention the price of a RR then you can’t actually afford one…..not only that if people rattle on about what they paid for this or that, well it’s all so ‘lower class’ isn’t it….


      Luxury in the mid of poverty. Shameless creatures.

        Well that’s democracy and capitalism for you!
