Pair of striking red Rolls-Royces with Scottish connections to be auctioned at the Imperial War Museum Duxford

 

Rolls-Royces tend to be noticed wherever they go but a pair to be auctioned later this month are especially stand-out examples in that they both come in especially bold shades of red.

 

The first car, a 1990 Rolls-Royce Corniche III convertible, is offered with an estimate of £50,000 to £60,000 ($62,000 to $74,000, €58,000 to €69,000 or درهم228,000 to درهم273,000). It was built to special order for a Scottish laird and features one-of-a-kind red paintwork said to match the colour of his family’s tartan. The 27-year old automatic, 6.75-litre vehicle comes with an original set of cut glass decanters and matching glasses and has covered just 64,900 miles.

 

The second comes in the form of a 1935 Rolls-Royce 20/25 limousine with coachwork by Hooper & Company of Westminster, London. It is presented in maroon and black with black upholstery up front and red to the rear. Originally owned by a Mrs Margaret Abercrombie of Castlehead, Paisley, the 3.7-litre long-wheelbase car subsequently spent 39 years in the USA before returning to the UK in 2003. It is offered with an estimate of £24,000 to £26,000 ($30,000 to $32,000, €28,000 to €30,000 or درهم109,000 to درهم118,000).

 

The cars will be sold by H&H Classics at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridgeshire on 29th March.

  1. Are you guys being serious???????????? These gas guzzling beastly boat like rust buckets need to be consigned to the scrap yard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get me a new Lambo any day mate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. The Corniche is like a boat to drive. I tried one out and though you sit in luxury you really have to put in a lot of work to make it turn a corner even.

  3. @Rod. The mpg petrol consumption of Lambos (sic) and RRs is very similar i.e. not high. Can we assume you don’t like them because they’re old and you don’t like old anything? I hope Mrs Rod is staying Dorian Gray youthful or she’s in danger of your wrecking ball.
