- Ex- Gloria Guiness

This Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith was one of the last generations of cars still equipped with a special body made by a coachbuilder. For the car on offer it was Hooper who realized this sedan as a coupe-chauffeur with opposing doors. It features all the amenities going with its top class quality and luxury: power windows separating the driver, a liquor cabinet, folding seats, retractable picnic tables in the boot, foot rests for the rear seats, vanity mirrors and roof lights... It is not by chance that this Silver Wraith was delivered new to Gloria Guinness, voted "the most elegant woman in the world" in 1960. This car is powered by a six-cylinder in-line engine of 4887cc, reaching easily a speed of 140 km/h, in silence and the privacy of its luxurious cabin. The current collector owns the car since 1999 and in 2000 it underwent several works: restoration of the upholstery and the interior woodwork, rehabilitation of the clutch, brake adjustment, the radiator was changed, an electronic ignition was installed and the spark plugs replaced, plus rehabilitation of the exhaust manifold. Equipped with new tyres recently, this car is registered with the Mark VI & Silver Wraith Register. It is a car of choice that Rolls-Royce fans will really appreciate.
