1936 Rolls Royce Phanton III Sports Enclosed Limousine

1936 Rolls Royce Phanton III Sports Enclosed Limousine

Bids to ?35,000 "Not Sold"

2010 Peking to Paris Challenge participant and Silver Medal winner

The stately Rolls-Royce Phantom III was announced in late 1935 and, until the Silver Seraph of 1998, was the only 'Spirit of Ecstasy' to be powered by a V12 engine. As one would expect from a company already expert in the manufacture of similarly configured aero engines, this was quite some powerplant. Of all-alloy construction, it had a displacement of 7338cc and overhead valves operated by a single camshaft nestling in the valley of the cylinder banks. Prior to 1938, the units featured a unique hydraulic tappet system. A twin ignition setup comprised two distributors, two coils and 24 spark plugs.

Suspension was independent with coil springs at the front and semi-elliptic units at the rear. The gearbox was a four-speed manual unit with synchromesh on the top three ratios. Braking was servo-assisted drums all round. The specification included integral jacking and a one-shot lubrication system operated by a lever in the driver's compartment. Owners purchased a rolling chassis from Rolls-Royce, the bodies being added by a coachbuilder of their choice, the most renowned of whom were: Hooper, Mulliner, Park Ward and Thrupp & Maberly. Once complete, Phantom IIIs could turn the scales at up to 3.5 tons. According to Autocar's magazine test of a 1938 model, 60 mph could be summoned in just under 17 seconds, from which the car could be persuaded on to a terminal speed of some 87 mph. The overall fuel consumption was a little extravagant in the light of today's prices - 10 mpg. Phantom III production ceased in 1939 after 727 examples had been manufactured. Its period of global fame was still 25 years away, however, as in 1964 it was immortalised as the transport of choice by the villainous Goldfinger in the James Bond movie named after him. The black and yellow Phantom III featured was a splendid Sedanca de Ville model with coachwork by Barker.

The right-hand drive Phantom III offered for sale is also finished in Black and Yellow and was built to the order of a Mrs Fyfe-Jamieson of Meigle, Perthshire. Its chassis, number 3-AZ-66, was despatched to Hooper & Co of St James Street, London on July 9th 1936, for the fitment of what is described as a 'Sports Enclosed Limousine' body. The car's specification included 'soft' rear springs, as the Rolls was primarily to be used for touring on the continent.

Following World War Two, 'Flora' is understood to have passed through the hands of David Markson and A. Fairbrother (both fellow countrymen of Mrs Fyfe-Jamieson) before journeying to North America. Repatriated sometime during the 1980s, the handsome Hooper-bodied car's next known owner was Mr Ron Cowpe who purchased it from marque specialists The Real Car Company. By coincidence, Cowpe ended up emigrating to Victoria in Canada, so the car crossed the Atlantic once more. The current owner bought it in Victoria in 2008, with the specific intention of entering the 2010 Peking to Paris Rally. So began a unique restoration project.

It was also a not inexpensive task for, having spent $45,000 on purchasing the venerable Rolls, he then parted with a further $135,200 to rejuvenate it and prepare it for its impending 9,000 mile ordeal through 12 countries and some of the world's toughest terrain. 'Flora' was completely stripped and the chassis restored and powder coated. The engine, gearbox, axle, brakes and electrical system were also totally renovated, with new parts fitted as required. A total of six wheels were restored with extra-heavy duty spokes - a second spare being housed in the left-hand front wing. The fuel system was upgraded with boot-mounted twin pumps and filters, both a 40-gallon FuelSafe and 20 gallon auxiliary bladder tank, plus a three-stage filter for the carburettor.

A modern core was added to the radiator and the power supply modified to dual batteries with isolator switch. A contemporary heater was installed and a truck-spec silencer fitted. Further rally-orientated items included: a roll bar, three-point harnesses, mud flaps, fire extinguisher, competition odometer, sump guard, bull bars, and storage boxes in place of the rear seat. Despite the pounding the rally was bound to inflict on the bodywork and period interior, the Rolls was treated to a bare metal repaint in Black and Yellow and a complete re-trim in beige; during which the front seats were contoured to ensure better support for the competing occupants. 'Flora' was one of 85 cars to complete the rally, finishing 19th in the 1931-1941 class and being awarded a silver medal. The team dealt with 20 punctures, the total destruction of two wheel rims and problems with second gear, the handbrake and dynamo.

As now offered, the Phantom III is said to have "good" paintwork and trim, no known problems with the engine and minor damage to the coachwork. There is apparently a tendency for the gearbox to jump out of second gear

1988 Porsche 959 "Komfort" - RM Auctions

1988 Porsche 959 "Komfort" - RM Auctions

This 1988 Porsche 959 "Komfort" model sold for $412.500 at the RM Auctions in Monterey on August 13, 2010. Below is their catalogue description:

640 bhp at 6,500 rpm, Garret ball bearing twin-turbos, six-cylinder alloy engine, six-speed manual gearbox with all-wheel drive and active torque-split, three-stage traction control (dry, wet and snow) and electronically adjustable ride-height and shock absorber control, double wishbone front and rear suspension with four shocks per 17" diameter alloy wheel, four-wheel disc brakes with ventilated rotors and alloy and Kevlar body paneling.

- A desirable “Komfort” model
- Reengineered to Canepa Design Specifications
- One of only 283 examples built
- The “original” supercar
- 640 bhp with a top speed of 222 mph

Only a total of 283 Porsche 959s were built, of which 83 were the “Sport” models used in competition with the other 200 cars designated as “Komfort” versions for street use. Even at the original list price of approximately $300,000, the cost to Porsche to build each car was double this figure, and the 959 was humorously referred to as the “Porsche factory’s gift to its favorite customers.”

The Porsche 959 “Komfort”

Before the Ferrari F40, before the McLaren F1, and almost before the term “supercar” was invented, there was the Porsche 959, an expression of extensive development, technical excellence, and competitiveness that brought a new excitement to road-going automotive pursuits.

The Porsche 959 odyssey started in 1983 and involved many pioneering techniques, most notably molded composite bodywork. It was the first automotive production use of DuPont’s Kevlar aramid fibers. The suspension has three ride-height settings, as well as three dampening settings for the shocks. Its sophisticated antilock braking system is controlled by high-speed microprocessors augmented by run-flat Bridgestone tires.

The 2,849 cc twin sequential turbocharged and intercooled flat-six engine runs a maximum boost of one atmosphere and uses water cooling for the six individual cylinder heads. The result is a robust horsepower rating of 450 at 6,500 rpm. This power is transmitted through an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system. Top speed is 198 mph, and 0 to 60 mph is achieved in only 3.6 seconds – mind-boggling figures then and now. The list of Porsche 959 specifications reads like the wish list for the world’s best and most advanced automobile, which was in effect what this GT missile turned out to be at the time of its mid-1980s introduction. Even today, no other road-going supercar is able to match or surpass the unique technology of the 959’s performance specifications.

Canepa Design Specifications

Aside from the 959 “Sport” and “Komfort,” there are also the extremely rare re-engineered cars that were modified by Bruce Canepa. Canepa Design invested years of research and development to take the Porsche 959 to an even higher level of performance, all the while being compliant with California and Federal Emissions laws.

This particular 959 is equipped with Canepa Design’s Phase II Engine Upgrade. This upgrade includes eliminating the factory turbo system and replacing it with an all-new Garrett ball bearing twin-turbo system with re-designed wastegates using Tial diaphragms and titanium heat shields. Also, all intake and exhaust valve springs are blueprinted, optimizing cam timing, and all-new intake runners are matched with K&N Air Filters. The fuel system along with EGR jets are upgraded utilizing a modern engine management system with ADL and an F1 technology engine wiring harness. To help maintain all of this, a high-output ignition system, upgraded alternator charge system, battery module, idle control valve, air pumps, air regulator valves, and a whole host of sensors, wiring, adapters, hardware, and connectors are used. In all, over 369 new components are added.

Canepa Design then combines all of the engine upgrades with a new stainless steel exhaust system that utilizes Porsche original equipment catalytics and a bypass system that produces increased horsepower and a more aggressive exhaust note that can be controlled via a switch on the dash. The entire clutch system has also been modified to help handle all of the power upgrades, which include an improved pressure plate, disc, and a modified clutch pedal assembly.

Not content with just power upgrades, Canepa Design also has upgraded the suspension to 959 “S” specifications by incorporating their new gas strut design with titanium coil-over springs while removing the electronically adjustable controls for ride height and damper tension. They have also reengineered the factory wheels with a new bead design, which allows the installation of today’s state-of-the-art high performance Z-rated tires which, combined with the suspension upgrades, provide greatly improved handling.

The end result of all this raises the 959 performance levels in all areas: 640 bhp, 570+ ft-lbs of torque
