A 1958 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud is going under the hammer in an auction being held in Monaco next month, with bidding expected to exceed the £1 million mark.
This particular Silver Shadow has a few rather special features, including a cocktail bar built into the boot.
The boot is so large that there are actually no rear seats and this example is one of just two produced, which enhances its rarity.
The design of the car earned it the nickname of the 'Honeymoon Express' and it will doubtlessly cause many people to fall in love with it, thanks to its design, heritage and pure prestige.
Its original owner is thought to have been one of the leading figures in the Freemason group, with the integrated cocktail bar suggesting that it was built at a time when drinking and driving was still socially acceptable.
Having covered just 42,000 miles during its time on the road, this pristine Rolls-Royce will probably be able to exceed its estimated price if it does make it to auction. Of course the right private buyer might be able to take it off the market beforehand, if a suitable bid is made.
The auction is being run by RM Auctions, and wil take place at The Grimaldi Forum, and will take place on May 11 and 12.
