Rare Plus 4 from the first year of construction
In 1906, Rolls-Royce created its worldwide reputation with the “Silver Ghost”. In the 1920s as its genius construction started aging, the Phantom I emerged. Its engine was a brand new construction, but its body stayed the same. Demand rose quickly and 3,453 Chassis of the Phantom I were delivered, 1,241 of which at the American Rolls-Royce factory in Springfield. Naturally, these cars were left hand driven and there were several other technical differences between the English and American construction: The US versions had a 3-speed gearbox and 6-volt battery. But excellent quality was a standard for both models!
Our RR Phantom I was licensed in New York City in 1929. At some point, the town car body was replaced by its current tourer body. From 1980 onward, the Phantom was in Switzerland, was restored completely between 2000 and 2012 and has since been registered in Germany. A FIVA identity card is available. A Rolls-Royce Phantom is always a legendary car but this one is also tremendously elegant.

It is not a well-known fact that two Germans, Siegfried Bettmann and Mauritz Johann Schulte founded the New Triumph Cycle Co. Ltd. in 1887 in Coventry. They made their first car in 1923, at the time named the Type 10/20. In the 1930s, Triumph made a name for itself with well-equipped, sporty mid-range cars. It competed with the Jaguar SS on an equal footing.
Our Triumph Vitesse Tourer was delivered as a limousine to Eltes & Fox Biscuits in Banscough. The second owner drove it in the city of Derby. After the war, the Vitesse was supposed to become a sports car. After a long search today’s touring body was found and built. In 1999 the sporty classic car came to Germany and has been registered here since 2003 with an H license plate. It’s a pleasure to drive on country roads with this agile touring car! Between 80 and 100 km / h this 80 year old classic does very well.
