Behold: the 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III – one the most elegant Rollers of RR’s ‘golden’ coach-building era. this car – one of only six hand built by James Young – was originally delivered to Melville Thompson, Esq. of Northern Ireland and required 2600 hours to complete.

Retaining its original 6.2 litre V8 engine and fully restored in 1997 by a former James Young employee, it’s accepting bids this month between €160,000- €237,000.

    C’mere, how much does she do to the gallon, and what’s the roadtax on her?

    If sir has to ask, perhaps sir cannot afford the model.

      Well you did ask… €56 a year for motor tax – it is vintage. And probably somewhere between about 7-10mpg if you are gently wafting about…

    i really want to get an old jag, aston or roller for the craic, before we are all forced to drive electric noddy-mobiles.

      I understand the sentiment, though I neither space, patience or sufficent knowledge. But it would be nice to raise a bonnet and recognise all the oily bits again.

      Tell ya what… I got me an electric noddy-mobile last year and it’s the mutt’s nuts. Best car I ever had.
