Lot #740 - Ex-Maharaja of Kotah "Tiger Car." Chassis No. 23 RC - Engine No. CT 15. Equipped for hunting Bengal tigers and other wild game, this especially opulent and intriguing 1925 Rolls-Royce Torpedo Sports Tourer was originally commissioned by India's Umed Singh II. Also known as Sahib Bahadur, Umed Singh II was the Maharaja of Kotah from 1889 until his death in 1940. An avid big game hunter, the Maharaja enjoyed ample opportunity to engage his passion on the extensive grounds of his family's private estate. Monarchs, world leaders and titans of international industry frequently hunted alongside him as his guests. In early 1925, the Maharaja contacted Barker and Co., Ltd. of London, at the time, the preferred coachbuilder for Rolls-Royce chassis, to specifically outfit a Rolls-Royce New Phantom (aka Phantom I) for service as his estate's main hunting car. The New Phantom chassis upon which the Maharaja's tiger hunting car was built, was delivered to Barker for completion on August 8, 1925. Includes copies of Rolls-Royce Build Sheets, full ownership history from new and all the factory tools. This Phantom I has won many awards at major concours and shows.
