ROLLS-ROYCE 20/25

Saloon, close coupled saloon, touring saloon, enclosed limousine, enclosed landaulette, various specials.

As the decade grew older, the 20/25 suffered the same fate as so many other cars - it got heavier and heavier, and thus slower and slower. Larger 3.7-litre engine changed Twenty into 20/25 in '30, and main changes through mode's run were longer 132ins wheelbase from late '30, synchro from '32 and a hypoid rear axle from '36 on. 75mph possible, and the firm still believed the correct place for the gear lever was on the right hand side. 20/25s aren't scintillating cars, but they provide quality motoring at sane prices today. Some bodies, such as the Barker and Gurney Nutting Coupés de Ville, are lovely.
