Electrical engineer Henry Royce, dissatisfied with the car he owned in 1903, resolved to build a better one. Within two years he had done just that. It was a predecessor of his masterpiece, the 40/50 Rolls-Royce (1906) which came to be known as the Silver Ghost model. This example is driven regularly on long trips and performs flawlessly. The owner has driven the car over 30,000 miles including across the Alps (2003) and through New Zealand in 2006. The car has the oldest known Jacques Saoutchik coachwork.
