“Star of India” Rolls Royce Up for Auction

This Rolls Royce, popularly known as the “Star of India” is a one-off 1934 Phantom II 40/50 HP Continental “All-Weather Convertible” that was custom made for the Maharaja of Rajkot.

The car was in the collection of Hans-Günther Zach, who had his own museum in Mühlheim, Germany and is now selling off the entire collection.

The “Star of India” alone is expected to fetch a sum of €10 Million ($14.1 million); if it does that would make it the most expensive car in the world.

The private museum totals 27 cars (24 Rolls-Royces, 3 Bentleys), most of them pre-War – although it also includes many later classics of the ‘British Empire’ period.
