1968 saw the launch of the world’s most expensive production car in history, the Rolls Royce Phantom VI. In keeping with their tradition, Rolls Royce built only the engine and chassis before sending them off to their legendary coach building partners Mulliner Park-Ward. With only 374 units produced from a period of 1968-1990, this vehicle was designed with Monarchs and other heads of state in mind. This vehicle came standard with every creature comfort available including a middle row of fold away jump seats, an elongated wheel base for maximum leg room and centre dividing window. All this left the vehicle weighing nearly 3 tonnes so powering this colossal piece of machinery was Rolls Royce’s new 6.2L V8 that had been just previously released in the Silver Shadow range. This model still remains Queen Elizabeth II transport vehicle of choice.

This vehicle was 1 of 3 delivered new to Australia for exclusive use of the Australian government and in particular the Governor General. In the 1980s, it was retired from its government duties and auctioned to a Rolls Royce collector. GCCM acquired this vehicle in 2015 having purchased it out of Victoria. It is accompanied by a large history file detailing ownership and some works carried out along with the original tool kit. Today it presents in original and unrestored condition with nice patina for its age, however it could benefit with some minor cosmetic refreshing.
