This Rolls-Royce Phantom III Aero Coupe is a bespoke, one off design inspired by a 1935 art-deco illustration by J. Jortovic and published in Road & Track Magazine. The beautiful body was built by Classic Auto Rebuilding Service in Cameron, Wisconsin and the level of work that’s gone into it is just jaw dropping.
The Rolls was factory fitted with an aero-inspired V12 producing 165hp from a 7,340 cc capacity, power is sent to the rear wheels via a 4 speed synchromesh gearbox. The engine is fitted with two spark plugs per cylinder, two ignition coils, two distributors, and one English Zenith two-barrel carburettor, cooling and lubrication is achieved through a triple-pressure oiling system.
Now as you may have guessed, a bespoke Rolls-Royce is never going to come cheap and this particular example is expected to fetch between $650,000-$850,000 USD
