With the Rolls Royce 20/25, the company Charles Rolls and Henry Royce had founded in the infancy of the consumer automobile market began to really settle into 20th century car manufacture. Designed as a replacement from the moderately successful Twenty, its major boon was a 3.7 liter engine with a top speed of 75 mph compared to the Twentys 3.1 with a top speed of 60. This was especially advantageous performance-wise since the intricate and sometimes excessive coachwork consumers would request could overwhelm the Twentys relatively underpowered engine. It ended up being one of Rolls Royce Limiteds bestselling cars, with over 4,000 chassis being constructed between 1929 and 1936. And the engine wasnt the only major improvement over the twenty.
The 20/ 25 also came with improved brakes and a new ignition, clutch, and carburetor. In 1932, later advancements would be added such as more advanced shock absorbers and thermostat-controlled radiator as opposed to the early models, which were manual. Like the Twenty to the Ghost and the Phantom I, the 20/25 was posed as a smaller, cheaper alternative to the Phantom II with a distinctly modern sensibility.
Looking to purchase a classic Rolls Royce?
Like with every Rolls Royce, the Rolls Royce 20/25 is a luxury item and despite being produce in higher numbers than other models it still only gets rarer with the time. If you do manage to get your hands on a surviving 20/25 youll want to be very circumspect and have it inspected by someone whos properly qualified to tell you if its suffered (even slight) damage or been modified with non-standard parts. These kinds of quirks will lower the cost but at the same time, could lead to trouble down the road.
