The twenties was a very prosperous period for Rolls Royce with coach builders backing some very unusual and bespoke bodies. At this time 70% of Rolls Royce were destined for the Middle East, and that is where this particular car went, with the company ‘Park Ward’ who were commissioned to build a hunting car for a wealthy Maharajah.
The design incorporates fold away seats in the rear to allow standing position and a lockable gun case in the back, it also has two very large spotlights that mount either side of the windscreen for picking out tigers at night.
