Saloon
Coachwork: Gurney Nutting
Chassis #: GMU-8
The 20/25 was Rolls-Royce's second 'small' car, succeeding the 20hp model while intending to appeal to owners who drove their cars rather than those who employed chauffeurs. Despite a larger engine, horsepower remained the same. Remarkably, the 20/25, often with heavy coachbuilt bodies, was capable of a 75 mph top speed. Built from 1929-1936, a total of 3,827 were produced in Great Britain.

Chassis GMU-8 was originally sold to 'Bentley Boy' Woolf Barnato, who won the 24 Hours of LeMans three consecutive years in a Bentley. He famously raced the Blue Train from Nice to Calais in France - and won. Barnato commissioned this car from coachbuilder Gurney Nutting in 1932, which features a low roof line and hints of styling similar to the Blue Train Bentley. During World War II, this car was used by the British Military, later in Northern Africa, where it saw combat duty and was reputedly blown off the road by a mortar shell. Restoration was completed in 2015.
