Up for Auction: Pair of Rare Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts

Classic Cars

Ghosts are coming to Goodwood this September.

The Goodwood Revival will feature two Ghosts. The irony in that statement is incredible, I know. A pair of restored classic Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts are going up for sale in the heart of Rolls-Royce territory. Both cars are making the trip across the pond after spending the last years of their lives in the collection of Richard Solove in Ohio. Both cars are from the early 20th century and have been fully restored to their former glory.

The first Silver Ghost dates back to 1908 and is one of only four models still...alive. The classic car underwent extensive restoration in the 1990s at the behest of an Irish enthusiast. French outfit Labourdette planned the coachwork and gave it a regal sensibility. The vehicle served as a test-mobile for the International Car Trial. It is estimated to go between £325,000 to £425,000. The second Silver Ghost served as the Maharajah's Ceremonial Car and dates from 1911. The Silver Ghost was a big hit with Indian princes due to its rugged durability and top-quality.

This particular Ghost served under the Maharajah of Mysore and is estimated to go between £300,000 to £400,000. The pair of Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts will be going under the hammer at Bonhams' annual Collectors Motor Cars and Automobilia auction at the Goodwood Revival Meeting on September 16th.
