1933 Rolls-Royce 20/25HP

The new 20/25 model was debuted at the 1929 Olympia Motor Show and proved to be tremendously popular becoming the greatest of the inter-war successes. There were 3827 20/25 hp produced – over twice the number of its contemporary sibling the Phantom II.

The Rolls-Royce 20/25HP was a luxury car produced by the British automaker Rolls-Royce between 1929 and 1936. It was designed as a replacement for the highly successful 20HP model and quickly became popular among wealthy customers who appreciated the car’s elegance, performance, and reliability.

The 20/25HP was powered by a 3.7-liter inline-six engine that produced 20 horsepower at 3,000 rpm. The engine was mated to a four-speed manual gearbox that allowed the car to reach a top speed of 75 mph. The car’s suspension system was also upgraded, featuring a newly designed semelliptic leaf spring setup that provided a smooth and comfortable ride.

One of the most notable aspects of the 20/25HP was its handcrafted bodywork, which was made by a variety of coachbuilders, including Hooper, Park Ward, and Mulliner. This allowed customers to customize their cars according to their personal taste and preferences, resulting in a variety of unique and beautiful designs.

Today, the Rolls-Royce 20/25HP is considered a classic example of pre-war luxury motoring and is highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. Its timeless design, exquisite craftsmanship, and legendary reputation for quality and performance have ensured its place as one of the most iconic cars of the early 20th century.
