Rolls-Royce will celebrate its 115th anniversary with the launch of a bespoke Phantom, to be sold with Sotheby’s. The one-of-a-kind Phantom will be offered this Autumn in an online-only auction.

115 years ago, Charles Rolls and Sir Henry Royce met for the first time at the Midland Hotel in Manchester, resulting in what would become Rolls-Royce. To mark this momentous meeting, Rolls-Royce and Sotheby’s, whose combined history represents nearly four centuries of luxury, held a celebration in Sotheby’s newly expanded New Your headquarters on this special date.
