*** Information in English: 1952 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn 4.6 Litre Four-Door with Ghia bodywork. This particular 1952 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn 4.6 Litre Four-Door with Ghia bodywork is the only LHD example around out of a total production of two! On the 14th February 1952 this unique Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn was shipped as a bare chassis to Ghia in Turin, Italy. There the Rolls Royce was given its hand built bespoke bodywork. On the 7th June 1952 this Rolls Royce was supplied from new by Matorelli to a distinguished customer, the Contessa Ida Matarazzo. Shortly after delivery this car was shown at the Concours Villa Borghese, where it won the Gran Premio D’Onore. At the end of the fifties the Countess commissioned a number of alterations including enlarging the boot space by 20 cm to accommodate more luggage. In 1973 the Rolls Royce was sold to Sr. Pantanella. A few years later the car sold through the Frey collection in Switzerland to the then president of the German Rolls Royce Enthousiast club in Munich. He kept the car until in 1983 an American bought the car and had it completely restored in Zurich, Switzerland. The fine bodywork has very neat body panel fittings. In early 1989 the last owner took possession of this car and kept it for nearly 30 years. As one can see, the cars’ history is fully known, as is every owner. There is also a particularly meticulous record of documentation and the car has featured in various books and magazines. A truly unique chance to acquire this very special one-off Rolls Royce!

Dit is het enige linksgestuurde exemplaar met een door Ghia ontworpen carrosserie. In totaal zijn er slechts twee van gemaakt!! Dit betreft een unieke Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn, het kale chassis werd namelijk op 14 februari 1952 naar Ghia Turijn, Italië getransporteerd en daar werd een handgemaakte carrosserie gemaakt, speciaal voor deze Rolls. De Rolls Royce werd nieuw geleverd door Martorelli op 7 juni 1952 aan een bijzondere eigenaresse, namelijk Gravin Contessa Ida Matarazzo. Kort na levering werd de Rolls tentoongesteld op het Concours Villa Borghese, waar de auto de grote ereprijs won. Eind jaren 50 liet de Gravin de achterkant van de Rolls aanpassen. O.a. werden de achterklep en de auto zo’n 20 centimeter verlengd/aangepast voor meer bagageruimte. In 1973 werd de Rolls Royce verkocht aan Sr. Pantanella. Enkele jaren later werd de auto via de Frey collectie in Zwitserland verkocht aan de toenmalige president van de Duitse sectie van de Rolls-Royce Enthousiast Club, woonachtig in München. Deze eigenaar hield de Rolls in zijn bezit, tot in 1983 een Amerikaan de auto overnam en hem compleet liet restaureren in Zurich, Zwitserland. De carrosserie is mooi en heeft keurige passingen. Begin 1989 kwam de auto in handen van de laatste eigenaar, deze hield hem bijna 30 jaar in bezit! Zoals u leest is de gehele historie compleet en zijn alle eigenaren bekend. Ook is de Rolls Royce zorgvuldig gedocumenteerd en staat hij in diverse boeken en magazines. Kortom, een unieke kans om deze eenmalig geproduceerde Rolls-Royce te bemachtigen.
