Rolls-Royce originally owned by world record for speed on land and water holder Captain Sir Malcolm Campbell for sale
Captain Sir Malcolm Campbell was a rare breed in that he was one of the few land speed record holders of his era to die of natural causes. Famed for racing cars named Bluebird, this racing legend and motoring journalist also owned a specially built 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental with touring coachwork by Barker and now it is for sale for £220,000 ($326,000, €298,000).
Described in an article by Sir Malcolm as “the best Rolls-Royce yet”, the car allegedly was subsequently gifted by his family to the Royal Air Force and then spent time in America. It has been restored at lavish cost over a three-year period and has a new blue leather interior and metallic Saxe Blue paintwork.
