Just a few short weeks ago, Kylie Jenner added another eye-catching luxury vehicle to her growing collection. The young starlet purchased a brand new $320,000 Rolls Royce, that exhibits a pearly white exterior and a fully loaded interior. Many fans recall a few short months ago when her boyfriend, the rapper Tyga, purchased a red Mercedes G-Wagon as a gift for Jenner on her 18th birthday.
The rapper went to a dealership on Aug. 7th to buy the red Mercedes with the price tag of $115,000, according to TMZ. The rapper didn’t answer many questions about his purchase process as he admits he wanted the gift to be a surprise. Although the vehicles often seem like spur of the moment decisions, Jenner assured fans that she did her research before making he own final purchase. While most young adults lack the money or insurance premiums for such lavish vehicles, companies like Car Vision are making use of the Internet and social media to accommodate this new wave of car buyers.
During an interview with Car Vision’s owner and operator Dean Cafiero, we asked the car aficionado to give us an idea of what kind of upkeep a brand new Rolls Royce requires. “Once a car like that goes out of warranty, you’re talking about loads of money just to keep that car on the road. Everything from routine maintenance to small cosmetic work on the car is going to incur a big bill.”
It’s important to note that during Jenner’s social media display of her car purchase, she was never seen at the actual dealership. The brand new Rolls Royce was even delivered to her front door, as she shared her very first moments with the vehicle on her Snapchat feed. Her experience displays how much the car buying process has changed in recent years, as more young people are use technology to research their purchases and social media to share with friends or family.
CarVision’s history begins 18 years ago with only 20 vehicles for sale on the lot. They primarily used word of mouth and newspaper advertisements to get people interested in their inventory. “We started investing time in innovation as we watched technology change around us. We were one of the first dealerships to start putting dynamic photos of our cars online.” Dean explains. With over 18 years of experience in this industry, the Car Vision team enables people of all ages to research vehicle options in an interactive way. Boasting 50 pictures of each vehicle, a video walk around and a thoroughly written review, customers often come into the dealership knowing exactly what they want. While Dean admit that he’s not selling Rolls Royces or cars of that magnitude, he presents a well curated inventory that includes BMWs, Jaguars, Mercedes and various other types of reliable options.
