1914 Rolls-Royce for sale at $6.7 Million
Yes, you read the title right; there is a 1914 Rolls Royce for sale, but this is not just any 1914 Rolls-Royce! This is a royal purple 1914 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost that just happened to belong to Nicholas II, the last Tsar of Russia. Interested? The car is available for sale in Germany at a price of 5.5 million euro (or around $6.7 million at the current exchange rates).
This vehicle was built as a special order from the War Department in Russia in 1917 and then transferred to the Tsar. After the murder of the imperial family, the Rolls Royce "experienced" an adventurous life, traveling through half the world, including doing a stint in a car museum where it was displayed next to Adolf Hitler’s Mercedes. Finally the car was bought by a car collector in Germany and was hidden from curious eyes!
The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost was produced from 1906 to 1925, with 6,173 units produced. It was powered by a 7428cc six-cylinder engine that delivered a total of 48 HP at 1200 rpm and was mated to a three-speed gearbox. The car was capable of a top speed of 24 mph.
