This Silver Cloud 3 Continental Coupe wears alloy coachwork by H.J. Mulliner Park Ward. It was built for the King of Bahrain, H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Sheikh Salman Al Khalifa. The royal family was a loyal customer of the Rolls-Royce Company and had owned at least one example of nearly every exclusive model.
This example was ordered with many rare and expensive options, many of which are said to appear only on this particular car. It was ordered with full colonial specifications, full refrigeration, cocktail requisites (crystal decanters, thermos, etc.,), whitewall tires and a Phillips 45 rpm record player. It was painted Porcelain White over Scarlet Connolly hides and fitted with the crest of the royal family.
Michael Schudroff purchased the car in 1972, at which time it was located in Switzerland. To date, the car has covered approximately 19,000 original miles.
In 2009, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company Pebble Beach Auction where it was estimated to sell for $175,000 - $225,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for the sum of $132,000, including buyer's premium.
