Description

The Silver Wraith is one of Rolls-Royce’s most iconic cars. Its sleek design and luxurious interior have made it one of the most cars of the 1940s and 50s. In addition, the Silver Wraith was the model that brought Rolls-Royce out of an automobile manufacturing freeze and placed them back in the public spotlight following the end of the Second World War, which is why the Silver Wraith has been an extremely popular car among state heads and nobility.

The 1952 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith has been the official presidential ceremonial car of Brazil since its inception. Furthermore, the 1952 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith is the first of the Silver Wraith models to offer an optional Hydramatic automatic transmission from General Motors, rather than the usual four-speed manual transmission. Overall, 1952 was a big year for the Silver Wraith. Along with introducing an automatic transmission, Rolls-Royce rolled out a number of other changes that set the 1952 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith apart from its predecessors. For example, it was the first year that the company started producing long-wheelbase versions of the car. Moreover, the size of the trunk was increased, the headlamps were improved, and the single choke Zenith carburetor was added.

This fantastic 1952 long-wheelbase example is as the pictures show In truly stunning condition. A very imposing Rolls-Royce which previously spent all of it’s life in the USA and only returned to the UK in 2010 Which is all documented, and explains the lovely solid bodywork.

The Stunning streamlined body with New wide bodied whitewall tyres and gold plated spirit of ecstasy mascot, gold plated door handles, gold plated centre wheel hub caps Simply just Compliment the style & elegance to this unique car. The interior is just fantastic and unlike most luxury cars of its age, this Silver Wraith even has the comfort of Air Conditioning!

Having only covered 93k from new this car drives perfect and in the 4 years in its current ownership, has only covered 900 miles, Mot & Tax exempt but will be supplied with new Mot if required, current mot till July 2018.
