This Silver Ghost 40-50HP Rolls-Royce appeared in an advertisement in the French Omnia magazine for 9 May 1914. The copy lauded the flexibility of the coachwork, stating: “The top, when folded, is completely horizontal, to the effect that in this position it makes the car absolutely equivalent to a torpedo. The operation of the top can be executed by a single person. It is the most practical of touring cars because at one and the same time it manages to be, with the same coachwork, a closed car and an open car.”
We know from Tom Clarke that it is a car in the 2100-2699 series (cantilever rear springs and small brakes) and that it has the high radiator and louvred bonnet of export cars. Other than that, we in Britain would call it a cabriolet.
