Rolls-Royce Phantom V Touring Limousine Mulliner
With the launch of the Phantom V, Rolls-Royce offered its clients a long wheelbase vehicle of the highest class, reserved not only for dignitaries, royalty and heads of state, but also for those successful in business and finance who were looking for an exceptional car providing convenience, incredible comfort and plenty of room. Although the first orders were placed by the royal court and dignitaries, the bulk of inquiries originated in industry or from private individuals. Between 1958 and 1968, just 832 cars were built.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in May of 2010 at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco.
200 hp, 6,230 cc V8 engine, Hydramatic transmission, independent front suspension, semi-floating rear axle, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 3,568 mm (144")
