RM Sotheby’s Liechtenstein Rolls-Royce Sale 2021
RM Sotheby’s announced the Passion for Elegance sale for June 2021 in Liechtenstein. Exact dates have not been announced yet but are likely towards the end of the month not to clash directly with the special Milan sale announced for 15 June 2021. The sale will be in Liechtenstein — probably at Stabiq.
The planned format for Liechtenstein is a live auction but with limited attendance. Although closely allied with Switzerland, Liechtenstein is a small independent and very wealthy principality bordered by Switzerland and Austria. In the nearby town Dornbirn in Austria are TWO Rolls-Royce Museums.

The star of the collection is the 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Special Brougham by Brewster, estimate CHF1,300,000 to 1,750,000. This Rolls-Royce is a one-off design and the first and only of the three special town cars built that still retain their original coachwork.
This Brougham by Brewster was created for the American millionaire, Matthew Dick of Washington D.C., as a true one-off, bespoke automobile that cost an astonishing $31,000. It was the most expensive car built anywhere in the world in 1933. It had only five owners from new.

The 1958 Bentley S1 Continental Drophead Coupé by Park Ward, estimate CHF900,000 to CHF1,200,000, is a post-war highlight of the collection. The large Bentley S1 Continental is one of the most stylish British open grand touring cars ever made and frequently achieve a million-dollar at auction.
A further rare car is the 1954 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV Limousine by HJ Mulliner. Not only is it in one of only 18 Phantom IVs ever made but it was built to special order for Princess Margaret, the sister of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. It still displays the royal shield on the roof.
