Rolls-Royce History

1920 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

Share on:

In 1913 several special Rolls-Royce competition cars were produced based on the Silver Ghost built for the Austrian Alpenfahrt. This race was then the most severe test of reliability and ability for a touring car, covering in 1,800 miles and climbing 19 Alpine passes. This Rolls-Royce chassis built to competition specifications was ordered by the US Consul to Great Britain, Mr. Keith Merrill, in 1917. The car was not delivered until 1919/1920 after Hooper had bodied it with this Open Five Seat Tourer with the lower rake steering, nickel fittings and a foot warmer for the rear compartment with its Auster rear screen.
