Lawrence of Arabia's 'experimental' Rolls-Royce is for sale at RM

If you're a Rolls-Royce enthusiast, then you will immediately recognise these special letters: 'EX'...

Chassis 10EX is far from a run-of-the-mill Phantom I Rolls-Royce, but is rather a special experimental model.

Its Barker coachwork was built to test the factory's latest engineering developments, lightweight concepts and performance advancements.

After its extensive test career and repeated trips to Brooklands, UK, the car was used by the factory as a works demonstrator and has enjoyed a very colorful history since, including everything from ownership by prominent collectors to reportedly even being loaned to Lawrence of Arabia.

  Outside and inside the very special Phantom I Rolls-Royce...

Not surprising, very few of these experimental Phantom Is remain in existence - and 10EX's offering next month at RM'sSalon Prive auctionis an opportunity not to be missed.

The auction will take place at Syon Park, London, UK on June 23.
