Rolls-Royce among gems at Pennsylvania Auto Show

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The Pennsylvania Auto Show began Thursday at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg.

Among the hundreds of vehicles are a few rare finds.

The Rolls-Royce Foundation in Cumberland County is showing off three gems and used a lot of TLC to transfer them from Mechanicsburg to Harrisburg.

“We love showing off cars. It’s one of our favorite things to do. We love to talk to people about old cars and we also want to give people a chance to see cars they may not see anywhere else,” said Lloyd Hart of the Rolls Royce Foundation.

A 1995 Bentley Brooklands and a 1960 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud are part of the foundation’s fleet and on the floor at the car show.  The real showstopper is a 2014 Rolls Royce Wraith on loan from the manufacturer. It’s the fastest and most powerful Rolls Royce ever built and it isn’t cheap. The price tag is $366,000.

“Some cars you drive make people mean, like muscle cars, but this car, the Wraith, well, it just makes people happy”, said Charles Jensik. a volunteer at the Rolls Royce Foundation.

The auto show is one-stop shopping for people who are in the market for a new car. Nearly all makes are on display for visitors to check out.

“They like to come here and see it and touch it and put their butt in the seat. They confirm their wishes and desires then go back to the dealerships to purchase the cars,” said Steve Baun of the Pennsylvania Auto Show.

The show runs  through Sunday. For ticket prices and times, go to autoshowharrisburg.com.
