Sedanca de Ville
Coachwork: Hooper
Chassis Num: 3-CP-200
Sold for $112,750 at 2013 RM Sothebys.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom II was replaced by the Phantom III in 1935. The Phantom III was the company's first 12-cylinder model. The engine was more compact than the straight-six Phantom II engine and the firewall could be moved forward about eight additional inches, providing coachbuilders to create more spacious passenger compartments. The 7340 cc engine was 328 centimeters smaller than the Phantom II, but produced more horsepower. The Phantom III was given a new suspension, with shock absorbers adjusted by the driver.

This Phantom III example wears its original Hooper Sedanca de Ville body. The Hooper & Co. Ltd operated from 1905 to 1959. During their history, most Hooper body orders came from Rolls-Royce. Their clients included the Emperor of Japan, the King of Egypt, King Edward VII, Prince Hamiddulah of Bhopal, and the Shah of Persia.

The original owner of this car Captain Alastair W. Mackintosh, who was married to a Hollywood film star, Constance Talmadge. In 1940 or 1941, Captain Mackintosh sold the car to Mary Bruce. She owned the car until the late-1970s, when she sold it to I. I. Gordon, in England. The next owner was Frank Dale who purchased the car for his personal use. Recently, it was part of a large car collection in Dubai.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at RM Auction's Scottsdale sale. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $112,750 including buyer's premium.
