A new Rolls-Royce Dawn, the previous 1952 Dawn was a gorgeous car.
This new is a luxury convertible, with 6.6 l V12. Not so gorgeous than the 50’s one, but Rolls-Royce claims this Dawn is the quietest convertible in the world.

A nice car built from 1949 to 1955, with a straight six 4,257cc engine. 761 examples were produced, just 24 chassis were clothed by London coachbuilder Park Ward, and just six of those were given the flowing and elegant Drophead Coupe body. As the one you can see on this pics, with the classic 2-colour painting from Rolls Royce, this time in Midnight Blue and Shell Grey.

Fitzgerald was clear on the book: Gatsby has predilection for English luxury and he owned a Rolls-Royce. So, the car could have been a 1922 Silver Ghost (three first pictures on this post).
In 2013 film instead, we’ll find a really nice american car, a Duesenber Model J (no matter that was born 7 years after Gatsby fiction death). Of course, the race cars on the movie are with replica car, not 3M$ real ones 😉
Both are gorgeous cars that I like to share with u.

A new Rolls, a coupe based in the Ghost model with a fastback styling. It’s became the most powerful Rolls ever built: 6.6-litre twin turbo V12 with 624bhp.
Clearly this cars has been launched to compete with Continental GT, a very succesful car from Bentley and one of the most gorgeous car in 2000’s.
Which one do you choose?

I love auction, ‘cos is the moment people cares about publishing nice photos of classic cars. It’s the case of this 1925 Rolls Royce Torpedo Tourer or Tiger Car. It’s used by the Maharajah of Kotah for hunting Bengal tigers, so the car is equipped with gun and rifles.
This is the oldest car i’ve published, i think it’s a very nice car with an interesting history.

I want to honor the 100th anniversary of Lady of Ectasy posting one of the rarest vehicles in the world, a 1934 Rolls Royce Phantom II 40/50 HP Continental buyed by the Maharaja of Rajkot. He give to the car the name “Star of India”, referencing a 563 carat star sapphire.
The car was personalizated for the Maharaja some pretty fancy work made by Thrupp and Maberley and finished with saffron tone and polished aluminum wings. It has 14 headlights at the front (including adaptive lights that work with the wheel!! in 1934!!).
It’s a really nice and special classic car. Enjoy the pics.
