Collection of 13 rare Rolls-Royce cars going under the hammer on September 26

By  | 

Rolls-Royce cars are more than just a status symbol, they are considered to be ‘the best cars in the world’ that any auto lover can ask for.

Owing just one is a dream for many, but Henrik Frederiksen is a proud owner of not two or five or even ten Rolls-Royce cars; he is the owner of thirteen rare and incredible Rolls-Royce motor cars, which are set to go under the hammer at Bonhams on September 26.

The highlight of the auction is the 1914 Rolls-Royce 40/50 Silver Ghost Skiff, estimate 7,200,000-9,200,000 DKK (£675,000-875,000). This car, which is now over a hundred years old, features the 40/50 H.P. Silver Ghost chassis.

The collection also features the 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Open Tourer – estimate 2,000,000-2,600,000 DKK (£175,000-250,000). This is the last model that Henry Royce designed himself and was announced in September 1929 with deliveries commencing immediately. Unlike its predecessor, which inherited its underpinnings from the preceding 40/50HP Silver Ghost model, the Phantom II employed an entirely new chassis laid out along the lines of that of the smaller 20HP Rolls-Royce. Built in two wheelbase lengths, this new low-slung frame enabled coachbuilders to design a sleeker, more modern body for the car.
