Yohan Poonawalla's 1933 RR Phantom II by Barker & Co.

Recommended Posts

Car collector Yohan Poonawalla recently snapped up this fabulous 1933 Rolls Royce Phantom II which has quite a history. This Barker & Co bodied Rolls was originally made for multiple land speed record holder, Sir Malcolm Campbell who took delivery of this ‘short’ wheelbase Phantom II, around a month after he set the Land Speed Record in 1933.

Top speed of this sportier, touring saloon version of the Phantom II was 150kph which must have felt like a crawl for Campbell after the 437kph record he set in his Blue Bird he had just set. It’s no coincidence the Blue Bird was powered by a massive Rolls Royce aero engine. Campbell and Rolls Royce had a long association and the legendary record holder, called his Phantom II “the best Rolls Royce yet produced” Now, that’s some provenance this light blue car has.

Beautiful isnt it?
