Rolls-Royce 20/25 H.P.
(1929 - 1936)

Rolls-Royce 20/25 H.P., 1933, #GTZ67, Hooper Limousine
Rolls-Royce 20/25 H.P., 1933, #GTZ67, Hooper Limousine. The vast majority of 20/25hp were bodied with spacious limousine coachwork similiar to this.

Keeping up with Rolls-Royce's two model policy the R-R 20/25 hp was built as a stablemate to the big R-R Phantom II. In comparison to the previous 20hp model, the 20/25 hp offered better acceleration and higher top speed. A better overall average fuel consumption than the predecessor's was an added bonus. The increased power output did give coachbuilders greater opportunities to build larger bodies. Nearly 4,000 chassis were produced and make this Rolls-Royce's bestselling model of the period between the Great War and WWII..
