‘The Great Eight Phantoms’ Rolls-Royce Exhibition, will take place in Mayfair, London, at the end of July and it is your only chance to see Field Marshal Montgomery’s Rolls-Royce Phantom 3.
The special exhibition will gather together the greatest Phantoms from the last 92 years in Mayfair, London and will also welcome the next generation of this most celebrated luxury item, the new eighth generation Phantom.
In the lead up to the opening of the Exhibition, Rolls-Royce is announcing which Great Phantoms will journey to London from around the world, telling the stories of these motor cars, their fabled owners and the historical events they witnessed. It is with great pleasure that the marque announces today that the Rolls-Royce Phantom III of British Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein will join the Exhibition.
The ‘Butler’ Phantom III was Montgomery’s main official mode of transport for many years visiting such eminent addresses as 10 Downing Street, the War Office on Whitehall, the British Prime Minister’s country residence Chequers, and military operations centres such as Northwood in Hertfordshire and the NATO Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers-Europe in Rocquencourt, near Versailles, France.
The exhibition will be the first and only opportunity for car aficionados to see this splendid Rolls-Royce before it attends the swimsuit parade of the world’s most physically perfect motor cars, aka Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in the United States in August, after which it will return to its current owner’s private collection.
