A 1936 Rolls-Royce Phantom III

A cherished dream of all antique car collectors is the 1936 Rolls-Royce Phantom III.

This is the first and only pre-war Rolls-Royce with a 7.3-liter, 12-cylinder engine that developed 165 horsepower and speeds up to 145 km/h.

The car was equipped with an aluminum body, which reduced its weight and improved performance.

A total of 727 examples were produced, each of which was customized.

The owner could choose the color, finish and details, making each Phantom III a unique work of art with hand-finished Connolly leather and fine woods.

The Phantom III featured advanced technology for its time, including independent front suspension and hydraulic brakes for improved handling and safety.

At the time of its release, it cost around £1,600, and today well-preserved examples can command prices of several million dollars.
