AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

The Phantom III Rolls-Royce, which has a 12-Cylinder Vee Engine and Independent Front Wheel Suspension

A new Rolls-Royce model is a motoring event of the first magnitude. Details of the Phantom III, which have just been released, show the new car to be as distinctive and advanced as were its famous forebears the Silver Ghost, Phantom I and Phantom 11, and one which will still further maintain the prestige of the British motor industry at home • and abroad. The engine has two blocks of six cylinders mounted in Vee formation, with push rod overhead valves operated from a centre camshaft. Four carburetters are used. The gear-box is silent en all gears, including reverse, and synchro-mesh mechanism is provided on second, third and

top. Independent suspension with coilsprings is used for the front wheels, with long half-elliptics at the rear.

By using a 12-cylinder engine, which incidentally has a capacity of 7.3-litres aud is rated at 50.7 h.p., chassis space has actually been saved, and with a wheel-base of 11 feet 10 ins, it has been found possible to mount coachwork identical with that standardised on the 12 ft. 6 ins, chassis of the Phantom 11. The chassis price is £1,850.

A fully illustrated description of this magnificent car will appear in the November issue of MOTOR SPORT.
