The Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith was a car that was purchased by the "happy few" on Earth: Monarchs, diplomats, actors and industrials.
This is a very rare version with double headlights, as double headlights only became prevalent in later models. The well-to-do owner ordered the double headlights to be installed to compensate for the lack of public street lighting. The car was used in a dry desert-like environment. This also explains the unusual sundym glass (a first for that time), the extra large wheels and fabric interior.
This car comes from the collection of the First National Rolls-Royce and Bentley Museum and can be viewed in Arnhem, the Netherlands.
This is a used vehicle. It is highly advisable to view the vehicle before bidding, to avoid disappointment afterwards. To arrange a viewing appointment or for more info, please contact Catawiki. Offers are excluding transport and export, unless otherwise indicated.
