The 20/25 got its unusual name when the British government decided, more than a century ago, to allow the use of self-propelled vehicles on its roads, and devised a system of taxation for their use. It was agreed to base the tax rates on a formula that considered such factors as the engine's number of cylinder and their bore (but interestingly, not their stroke), and some other physical dimensions as well. The resulting arbitrary calculation produced a number that was considered the vehicle's taxable horsepower, which was then used to determine the annual road use tax.

The tax brackets were divided by single whole horsepower increments up to and including twenty. This covered the vast majority of the cars on the road at that time, and for some time after. Beyond twenty taxable horsepower, the brackets were divided into larger segments, the next being the one for twenty to twenty-five taxable horsepower (20/25), then 25/30, etc. with 40/50 being one of the largest, if not the largest, categories.

In the pre-war era, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Ltd. did not make complete cars. In that era, when a wealthy buyer decided to own a Rolls-Royce, he or she selected the coachbuilder of their choice and then chose the car's body styling from a wide variety of offerings from that coachbuilder's catalogue. This current body on this chassis is by Carrosserie Worblaufen, a Swiss coachbuilder, which was a rare choice on a Rolls-Royce.
