History
This 1928 Rolls-Royce Phantom I, chassis number 17 EX, is an experimental factory car used to develop a more sporting Rolls-Royce to compete with race-winning Bentleys of the period. Its aerodynamic body was designed by Jarvis of Wimbledon, and an enlarged 7.8-liter Phantom engine was fitted with aluminum cylinder heads and a modified cam-shaft in order to attempt the magic 100 mpg. The car was one of the fastest in its day and one of only a few Rolls-Royces to be called a Phantom Sports. After much testing by Henry Royce himself, who was never really convinced of the importance of racing, the car was sold in 1929 to the young Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir, where it led a regal life for a few short months amongst the 26 other Rolls-Royces that belonged to the Maharaja's family.
