The new Rolls-Royce 25/30 hp launched in the Spring of
1936 was at first offered as a model to be built
alongside the 20/25 hp. It found a ready market with
those who appreciated the prestige of the marque and
engineering at top quality level but perhaps did not
need the superior performance of the Phantom models. An
evolution of the well-proven 20/25 hp engine the
capacity had been increased from 3,669 cc to 4,257 cc.
Improved performance enabled a top speed of about 75-80
mph depending on the type of coachwork fitted. The 25/30
hp in chassis form retailed for just £50 more than its
predecessor. 1201 cars were built.
