The jewel in the crown - Raj era Roller sells for £550,000.
The Rolls from Rajputana... this regal Rolls-Royce formerly owned by an Indian Maharana who was at odds with George V has sold for a whopping £550,000.
The Silver Ghost was special ordered in 1914 by His Highness the Maharana Sir Fateh Singh Bahadur of Udaipur - a longtime ruler of a princely state in the British Raj.
While clearly a fan of British engineering Fateh Singh Bahadur riled the sovereign when he refused to welcome Edward, Prince of Wales, later Edward VIII, to India in 1921.
The vintage motor was sold by Bonhams auctioneer at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex on June 30.
