Estimate:
€25,000 - €35,000

  • Still fitted with its original Rippon Brothers coachwork
  • Recently completed restoration


The Rolls-Royce 20 HP was produced from 1922 to 1929, but as roads improved and motoring speeds increased, the charming 'Baby Rolls' could not keep up. Rolls-Royce reworked the 20 hp engine, and in 1929 the 20/25 HP was launched. The result was such a success that it was also used as the platform for the newly acquired Bentley marque in its 3�-Litre model introduced in 1933.

In 1564, coachbuilder Rippon built a coach for HM Queen Elizabeth I, yet centuries later they began fitting bodies for Rolls-Royce cars like the GXB5. Delivered new in July 1933, it is still wearing its original sportsman's saloon body finished in a lush Velvet Green following a recently completed restoration.

Owners of these delightful cars soon discover they are charming and easy to drive and are reliable performers. Those who know buy the small-horsepower cars for the sheer enjoyment of refined vintage motoring and recognize that few pre-war cars will give such honest service and long life as the 20/25.


  • Ainda mant�m a carro�aria original Rippon Brothers

  • Restauro terminado recentemente


O Rolls-Royce 20 HP foi produzido entre 1922 e 1929. Contudo, � medida que as estradas eram melhoradas e as velocidades de cruzeiro aumentavam, o "Rolls beb�" foi perdendo atualidade. Em 1929, a Rolls Royce fez uma atualiza��o ao motor e lan�ou o 20/25 HP. Este teve tanto sucesso que acabou por servir como base para os novos Bentley, marca que a Rolls Royce adquirira em 1931. O Bentley 3�-Litre seria lan�ado em 1933.

Em 1564, a firma de carro�arias Rippon produziu um coche para a Rainha Isabel I de Inglaterra. Alguns s�culos depois, come�aram a fornecer carro�arias para autom�veis Rolls Royce, como o GXB5. Entregue novo em 1933, continua a utilizar a sua carro�aria de berlina sportsman's saloon, ideal para ser conduzida pelo propriet�rio e n�o pelo motorista. Est� acabado num exuberante verde Velvet, ap�s o restauro, conclu�do recentemente.

Os propriet�rios destes autom�veis rapidamente descobriam que s�o realmente cativantes e de condu��o f�cil, para al�m de serem tamb�m muito fi�veis. Quem sabe compra os modelos menos potentes, como este, pelo experi�ncia pura e inebriante de conduzir um autom�vel vintage. Poucos autom�veis do per�odo pr�-Guerra proporcionam um desempenho t�o honesto e uma vida t�o longa quanto o 20/25.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
