Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit Two-Door Saloon by Hooper

Over the last couple of weeks, one particular Bentley Spotting post has been getting quite a number of hits, and it features this car.

Yes, it is a Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit Two-Door Saloon by Hooper & Co, Registration no. F745 KGP, Chassis no. SCAZS00A3JCH23037 and Engine no. 63021L410I/9. Read the post here.

Why? Well the particular car was just on the auction block at an RREC event were Bonhams held a Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Select Pre-War Motor Cars and Automobilia Auction, at Market Harborough, Rockingham Castle.

It certainly is an impressive and rare car.

There was quite a bit of talk about one thing, and surprise surprise it was the price. Bonhams has set the estimate at £12,000-16,000.

Here is the photo from the auction catalogue.

The estimate seemed quite low, considering that Bonhams sold a Bentley Turbo R 2-door by Hooper for £28,750 in December 2009, read about it here.

However it was though that this car did need some work done to it, and for people that had seem it on the street, said it did needed a refreah.

I did not post about this car before the auction, as a couple of readers of Bentley Spotting were thinking about putting their hands up, so I was being nice. A simple Google would have found the previous post with many photos.

I am not sure who eventually pick it up, but I do know the price.

The car sold for £22,425 inclusive of Buyer's Premium here.

Congratulations to the new owner, you certainly have picked up a great rare Rolls-Royce!

Please send in photos if people have them, and thank you to the people who let me know it was for sale.
