Rolls Royce is known for making some of the most memorable and not to forget expensive cars. The company has been making cars for years and some of the beauties from yesteryears keep turning up at auctions and not surprisingly, earn big bucks. Another one has turned up for Bonhams’ Rolls-Royce, Bentley Motor Cars & Automobilia sale taking place at Rockingham Castle, in Leicestershire, UK on June 19.
The car that we are talking about is a powder blue 1934 rolls Royce Phantom II. It’s previous owners were the by Greek industrialist Theodore Cozzika and American silent film star Pearl White. The couple used to travel in this car from their villa in South France to their residence in Cairo. The car’s chassis card tells us that the car was used on Continent and Egypt at very high speeds with fairly heavy luggage. This antique car underwent a full nut and bolt restoration which was carried out by marque experts Taylor’s of Chichester. It is expected to fetch around £250,000 – £300,000 (or about $360,000 – $430,000).
Another car from the company, a 1929 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Sedanca de Ville that was used by the Queen of England at Windsor Castle for the parade on both her Silver Jubilee in 1977 and her Golden Jubilee in 2003 is expected to get £100,000 – £130,000.
