Heres the funny story, he bought two town houses in Steveston because he didn't have enough parking spaces!

I remember those were a black 6-series and a mid-size Mercedes so I thought it was a E63 but instead that's actually a CLS.
I believe they live in a house at the Tera-Nova area now.

At $2500 a day, if the business is capable to developing a large enough clientele base that they are working 4 days a week or more, the potential for a huge return on investment exists. Interesting.

rough, rough numbers... don't criticize I have no experience owning a RR and don't care to research it.

annual gross revenue:
$480,000.

Annual Expenses:
$120,000/car (total cost amortized over 3-4 years then sold)
$25,000/ insurance.
$10,000/maintenance.
$35,000/driver.
$10,000/market

Profit: $290,000 annually before taxes.

rolls only costs 150k in the us right now.

if it starts booking up could be a pretty good idea. was actually thinking about doing it myself before they started but its quite a headache. at the same time do get to own a rolls for nothing lol

If $2500 a day brings profit margins that high, can definitely afford to lower prices and make it more affordable/tempting to potential customers. RS CHAUFFEUR COMPANY GO!

Do you think your dealership would be willing to offer a student $150k in financing?

I'm thinking about starting a business.

The black series is my friends, let me grab some pictures.

Also this does not have the AMG TRACK PACK edition because he wants 4 seats for daily driver.
