An especially elegant and imposing example of the Phantom III, chassis number 3AZ210 was bodied by the preferred London coachbuilders to Royalty, Barker & Company, known for the superb quality of its construction and fitments. Styled as a handsome saloon with division window, tapered wings, and a relatively low roofline, it was originally fitted with a polished bare-metal bonnet 5.5 inches longer than standard with aggressively raked louvres, as seen in a surviving Barker linotype included in the file. Along with the single rear-mounted spare the effect is an unusually clean front-end design that emphasises the size and power of the engine beneath. It was also specified with a speedometer reading in both miles and kilometres, as well as a fuel gauge in both gallons and litres, perfectly suited to continental touring.

Delivery was made on 29 January 1937 to Commodore Louis D. Beaumont, an American department store magnate, yachtsman, and avowed Francophile, at his villa Eilenroc at Cap d’Antibes. Reportedly, the car was intended as a lavish gift to his second wife, Hélène, a former opera singer turned international socialite, known for her decadent parties on the French Riviera, close friendship with the Duchess of Windsor, and landmark jewellery collection, sold at a well-remembered auction by Sotheby’s following her passing in 1988. The Phantom III retains many of its original interior features, including elaborate painted cabinetry and a compartment for a Clayton heater, the door of which is carved with Mrs Beaumont’s initials in an appropriately Art Nouveau font.

Paperwork from the Rolls-Royce Foundation indicates that the Commodore’s spouse accompanied the car to the United States aboard SS Rex in December 1939. It remained with American owners until its acquisition for the present collection in 1995. Offered in well-preserved older restored condition, it is equipped with a correct replacement engine and is accompanied by a history file recounting its build and ownership over the years. It is a Phantom III of dignified stateliness and unusually bespoke nature, with a fascinating past on both sides of the Atlantic.

Spécialement impressionnante et élégante, cette Phantom III (châssis 3AZ210) a été habillée par le carrossier londonien préféré de la Royauté, Barker & Company, réputé pour l'excellente qualité de ses constructions et aménagements. Réalisée sous la forme d'une élégante berline à séparation chauffeur, avec des ailes effilées et une ligne de toit relativement basse, elle a été équipée dès l'origine d'un capot en métal poli plus long de 14 cm que la version standard, avec des ouïes latérales inclinées, comme on peut le voir sur un ancien imprimé Barker inclus au dossier. Avec une seule roue de secours placée à l'arrière, l'avant de la voiture est inhabituellement net et souligne la taille et la puissance du moteur qu'il dissimule. Cette voiture a été livrée avec un compteur gradué à la fois en miles et km/h, ainsi qu'une jauge à essence en gallons et en litres, ce qui facilitait les voyages sur le continent.

Elle a été livrée le 29 janvier 1937 au Commodore Louis D. Beaumont, magnat américain des grands magasins, navigateur et francophile convaincu, dans sa villa Eilenroc de Cap d’Antibes. La voiture aurait été prévue comme un somptueux cadeau pour sa deuxième épouse, Hélène, ancienne chanteuse d'opéra devenue mondaine internationale, connue pour ses fêtes décadentes sur la Côte d'Azur, sa proximité avec la duchesse de Windsor et une splendide collection de bijoux qui sera proposée lors d'une mémorable vente Sotheby's organisée en 1988, après son décès.

La Phantom III présente un grand nombre de ses aménagements intérieurs d'origine, comme un élégant cabinet peint et un compartiment spécial pour un chauffage Clayton, dont la porte est gravée aux initiales de Mme Beaumont dans un style Art Nouveau.

Les documents provenant de la Rolls-Royce Foundation indiquent que l'épouse du Commodore s'est rendue aux États-Unis en décembre 1939 à bord du paquebot Rex dans lequel se trouvait aussi la voiture. Elle est restée entre les mains de propriétaires américains jusqu'à son achat en 1995 pour la présente collection. Avec une restauration ancienne bien préservée, équipée d'un moteur de rechange correct, elle est accompagnée d'un dossier historique retraçant sa fabrication et sa chaîne de propriété. Il s'agit d'une Phantom III très statutaire et de nature inhabituellement personnalisée, riche d'un passé fascinant des deux côtés de l'Atlantique.

1936 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Limousine

1936 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Limousine

On stand 107 at the 1935 Olympia Motor Exhibition in London, Rolls-Royce presented an all-new masterpiece, the Phantom III. Powered by a huge 7,338 cc alloy V12 with dual coil ignition, the Phantom III had independent front suspension, a four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top three gears and four-wheel servo-assisted brakes. The only V12 automobile produced by Rolls-Royce until 1998, the Phantom III was both lighter and more powerful than the Phantom II that it replaced, and its brilliant, precise engineering invited the bespoke coachbuilders to create innovative, streamlined bodywork around it.

This lavish 1936 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Enclosed Limousine features a stunning body design by Hooper of Westminster, London. It is finished in dark green with black fenders and roof, and has wheel discs color coded to the body, blackwall tires, dual chrome horns, Lucas P100 headlights, marker lights, a spotlight mounted on the driver’s side windshield post and a sidemount spare on the driver’s side. The interior is black leather in the front and grey cloth in the back, and features beautiful wood veneer trim throughout and a central division with rollup division window and foldout seats incorporated into its base.

After being sold new in London during January of 1937, it spent many years in the UK before being added to a large private collection of Ted Bacon in Nevada and then to the National Automobile Museum in Reno. Recently repainted, this right-hand drive Phantom III is largely original with a matching numbers engine and mellowed interior. It has also had a recent mechanical sorting to bring it to drivable and enjoyable condition, and has been driven long distance with no problems. Incredibly rare with only 710 examples built and regal in appearance with its elegant Hooper coachwork, this preserved Phantom III represents classic Rolls-Royce luxury at its very peak. Such a car as this will continue to command attention and admiration from discerning collectors and enthusiasts

Appears In Goldfinger

On film auric goldfinger’s 1937 rolls-royce phantom iii first appears when he arrives at the golf club for what turns out to be a memorable round with 007. after bond wins their game, he fits a q branch homing device in the rolls-royce’s boot. the rolls-royce is flown by air to geneva, followed by 007 who then tails goldfinger along the furkha pass through the alps, using the tracking equipment in his aston martin db5. when bond arrives at auric enterprises, he observes the rolls being dismantled and learns that goldfinger smuggles his precious metal as the phantom iii’s bodywork, which is made of 24-carat gold., the vehicle the phantom iii is the last of the large pre-war rolls-royces and the final car which henry royce worked on before his death in 1933, one year into the car’s development. introduced in 1936, the phantom iii is the first of only three rolls-royce models to boast a v12 engine and just 727 phantom iii chassis were constructed (1936-1939). the car weighs a heavy 8,000lbs, its bulk limiting the top speed to 87mph, while its 0-60mph is 16.8 seconds. the thirsty v12 engine offers just 10mpg., the production the classic yellow and black phantom iii used for filming is said to have been custom-built in 1937 for rt hon. lord fairhaven of anglesey abbey, cambridgeshire, with the coachwork tailor-made by the prestigious barkers coachworks. the film crew arrived in switzerland on 4th july 1964 to shoot the winding roads around andermatt where bond trails the rolls and battles with tilly masterson’s ford mustang. they fell behind schedule when the aston martin burned out its clutch on the second day. the plate fitted to the rolls, au1, was the first registration ever issued in nottingham (in 1903), and it was chosen to reflect goldfinger’s ostentation (au being the chemical symbol for gold in the periodic table)., coming soon.

rolls royce phantom 1936 interior

Rolls Royce Phantom had bagged the award of the Best Luxury Car of the Year 2009 . And this year, Rolls-Royce Ghost has been crowned as the best luxury car at the Moscow International Motor Show. 150 journalists voted in favor of this majestic car during press exhibition days and it was officially announced a couple of days back at Crocus Expo. James Crichton, Regional Director Rolls-Royce Motor Cars for Europe and South Africa stated, “The award comes as Rolls-Royce makes its debut at the Moscow Motor Show and I am thrilled that our Ghost, the Phantom Coupé Aviator Collection and the Russian debut of Phantom Series II have been so warmly received. Rolls-Royce represents luxury like no other brand and our Russian clients appreciate that cars carrying the famous Spirit of Ecstasy figurine represent the pinnacle of luxury, the ultimate in refinement and the embodiment of success.” This comes as no surprise since Moscow as recently been honored as the Billionaire capital where most of world’s wealthiest reside.

This Rolls-Royce Phantom's interior features one million stitches

All those Phantom threads combine to create an intricately stitched floral scene.

sean-szymkowski-headshot

Holy roses.

The team that makes up the Rolls-Royce Collective sure loves a challenge . They're the guys and gals responsible for bringing some of the wildest custom requests to life. And they can now add a million-stitch interior to the list of achievements because that's exactly what we have here.

Stitched throughout this Rolls-Royce Phantom 's cabin are one million individual, hand-sewn stitches to create a floral pattern, a request from a Stockholm-based customer. Being Rolls-Royce, the company gladly accepted the challenge to create such a scene.

Serving as inspiration for the flowers was another element uniquely Rolls-Royce and super bougie. The Phantom Rose, a rose grown exclusively for the British automaker in its gardens, provided a starting point for designers. From there, they decided to incorporate this special flower throughout various stages of life in the cabin.

There's a stitched rose garden in this Rolls-Royce Phantom

 width=

It starts when you open the rear door, which reveals the rose in bud. From there, it spans across the headliner and passengers see the flower bloom in the downright amazing stitch work. The automaker's starlight headliner illuminates the work with individually placed lights in the cabin's roof.

No garden is complete without a passing butterfly, which the designers and craftspeople didn't neglect in the door panels. Looking ahead from the back seat, you'll see that embroidered roses also adorn the front cockpit. If you can afford a Rolls-Royce, you probably spend more time in the rear seat being driven anyway, so it's reassuring to see the work continued in the front.

Like a fancy restaurant without prices, there's no cost attached to this work. Better not to ask. But nonetheless, this is some extraordinary work.

rolls royce phantom 1936 interior

Yesterday evening Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Moscow presented the unique Wraith ‘Black & Bright’ collection for the first time, inspired by the mood of Moscow nights. The limited edition, exclusive to the Muscovite dealership, features three Wraith Black Badge motor cars in individual colour combinations: Brennen Green, Orange metallic and Twilight Purple combined with Diamond Black. “The green lights of the Moscow City district, the sparks of the cars passing by, the warm orange illumination of the historic ‘Hotel Ukraine’ building – these are key touches to the ambiance of Moscow nights,” said Tatiana Fitzgerald, Managing Director, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Moscow. She continued: “Our clients conquer the business world by pushing the boundaries and wish to celebrate their success. Wraith Black Badge is the natural choice to encapsulate this spirit in the ‘Black and Bright’ collection – ambition, unconventional thinking and pure joy of life in the city that never sleeps.” The centrepiece of the cabin is the legendary starlight headliner. For the first time the stars will shine with green, purple and orange colours, echoing the exterior and interior accents. Surfaces are made from aerospace-grade aluminum-threaded carbon fibre. The ‘Unlimited’ infinity symbol, signifying the Black Badge Series, is embroidered on the upholstery where black leather marries the vibrant touches of Orange metallic, Twilight Purple and Brennen Green, delivering a more edgy feel to the cabin. The tread plates are engraved with the infinity symbol and the name of the collection: Black and Bright. Special build for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Moscow. “Distinction, leadership and genuine expression is at the heart of the Bespoke Programme. The car is regarded as a key element of one’s taste and personal style, so it’s only natural it’s bespoke" said Matthew Danton, Bespoke Designer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, during the presentation of the collection cars in Moscow. Rolls-Royce Bespoke Personalisation is the synonym for Rolls-Royce. Designers and craftspeople at Goodwood strive for perfection in bringing patron’s dreams to life. A Rolls-Royce motor car can be as individual as its patron’s fingerprint. We offer a palette of over 44,000 individual exterior colours, unlimited choice of veneers and fine materials. Today every car leaving Goodwood features an element of Bespoke.

What’s the most Rolls-Royce car in the back catalogue?

Posted: 1 January 2024 | Last updated: 1 January 2024

With the seventh generation of Phantom, BMW managed the impossible task of successfully summing up all that was great about Rolls-Royces while also dragging a fusty relic into a new era – the previous version of the Phantom was on sale from 1968 to 1990.

The nameplate represents the very best of the luxury that Rolls-Royce has to offer, an idea especially seeded with the fourth generation of the car that was launched in 1950. It was only offered to the likes of buyer who really deserved it, like royalty and other heads of state. Indeed, the car given to Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip in July 1950 is still in use by the British royal family, and Charles III has been seen out in his.

It wasn’t a guarantee that BMW’s Phantom reboot would be successful, though, with the smouldering wreckage of its Rover ownership still very much in the present memory. The Phantom VII was developed alongside the likes of the new Mini and Range Rover MkIII. The latter car was launched after Jaguar Land Rover were split off and sold to Ford.

The VII was revealed on 1 January 2003, the very first day that BMW got its hands on the whole Rolls-Royce package after a protracted period of punchy negotiations with Volkswagen. It was an immediate hit, and in fact the only car that Rolls built for six years until the arrival of the Ghost in 2009. It was mostly made from aluminium, and constructed painstakingly by hand at the company’s bespoke new facility in Goodwood, West Sussex. OK, there are two robots in the factory that help with painting, but the coachlines along the sides of the cars are still done by someone with a very steady hand.

If the sheer presence of the car didn’t wow onlookers, then they would have had their socks knocked off by fancy trinkets such as the self-levelling Rolls-Royce logos on the wheel hubs, the double glazed windows or the umbrellas in the suicide rear doors (although Skoda has since stolen that trick). Try to steal the Spirit of Ecstasy and she’ll dart down into the safety of the impressively armoured grille. The interior of the car displayed unparalleled luxury, and that was even before you got stuck into money-no-object bespoke whims that the firm was more than happy to cater for.

The 6.75-litre V12 petrol engine might not have made for happy fuel bills, but the 453bhp and 531lb ft of torque ensured effortless performance in the smoothest possible way. The Phantom was intended all along as a chauffeur car, designed with the express intention of cossetting whoever was reclined in the back. Sadly this Phantom was no longer the preserve of royalty, but was embraced by celebrities and rich businessmen alike as one of the ultimate trappings of success. Nowadays around £80,000 will get you into an early MkVII Phantom – objectively pricey, but never has a display of wealth been such a bargain.
