Elegant Rolls-Royce 20/25 Has Real Class

Rolls-Royce has always stood above other luxury cars in terms of engineering and opulence. This 20/25 reinforces that reputation!

Over the past 115 years Rolls-Royce has become synonymous with the ultimate in opulence, and the finest of craftsmanship. It is a reputation built on Henry Royce’s bedrock of ‘Take the best that exists and make it better.’ By the 1930’s the British marque’s portfolio was expanding with the new 20/25 model appealing to a new audience. For those looking to join the rarified world of classic luxury, this 1934 example offered by the Classic Car Club of America could be your solution.

The Rolls-Royce 20/25 served as an entry-level model that appealed to a greater number of people than the larger Phantom II model it launched alongside — in fact it proved so popular that it drastically outsold the Phantom II during the interwar years.

More on Rolls-Royce

This was still very much the era of coachbuilt cars, and so this 20/25 plays host to a beautiful Park Ward Sport Sedan body. Its stately shape is divided by two-tone paintwork which was very fashionable for cars of the era. The design is dominated by the traditional Rolls-Royce grille and Spirit of Ecstasy, a true status symbol of the era.

The interior is as lavish as you would expect with beautiful woodwork forming the dashboard. Intricate aircraft-like dials fill the instrument binnacle, while a simplistic wheel is offered to the driver. Spacious rear quarters present new fine blue leather upholstery and plenty of privacy afforded by the large C-pillar. AN added luxury of this 20/25 is its sunroof.

CFS: 1934 Rolls-Royce 20/25

Under the lengthy hood is a 3.7-liter in-line six-cylinder engine producing just over 25hp. Rolls-Royce packed plenty of innovative engineering into its cars, the 20/25 being no exception. Automatic adjusting radiator louvres to aid with cooling, vibration dampers to isolate mechanical operation from the passengers, and hydraulic dampers in the suspension made for a forward thinking automobile.

This 1934 Rolls-Royce 20/25 has previously benefited from a mechanical restoration, and appears in excellent condition. Its current asking price is $49,500.
