Rolls-Royce and the Mercedes-Benz Gullwing star in RM's London auction

Since the early 1800s, Hooper coachwork has enjoyed an outstanding reputation for quality, elegance and exclusivity and, for the better part of the 20th Century, focussed its efforts on Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars.

One of the highlights of this year's RM Automobiles of London auction is a selection of 23 cars from the Hooper Corporate Collection, ranging from a superb recreation of AX 201, the famed 1907 Silver Ghost Roi-de-Belges, to more modern cars such as a Vector W8 Twin Turbo.


Highlights include the 1935 Auburn 852 Supercharged Speedster; 1992
Vector W8 Twin Turbo; 1923/1907 Rolls-Royce 40/50 HP Silver Ghost
"AX 201" Roi-de-Belges Recreation; and the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL
Coupé  


Several of the more modern Rolls-Royces are custom, one-off examples constructed by Hooper with enormous price tags. Others have been on display for many years in the Auto & Technik Museum in Sinsheim, Germany.

The collection will be presented for sale to collectors with an eye for design and an interest in rare and important automobiles. The auction is set to take place on October 27 - watch this space for upcoming news.
