Vanden Plas Princess 4-litre R

During the 1960's BMC and Rolls-Royce worked on a number of projects involving the possible joint venture of producing a small Rolls-Royce motorcar. The only production car to come from this unusual partnership was the Princess 4 Litre R, launched in 1964, the "r" signifying the Rolls-Royce engine.

This large luxury saloon car incorporated a modified Farina, A110 bodyshell (with a unique tail design) and a R-R FB60, 3909cc six cylinder engine. This particular engine was never used in any other passenger vehicle, however it was built to the usual high standard that could expected of a R-R engine. The cars external and internal trim was similar to the earlier 3 Litre cars, the only Rolls-Royce badges appeared on the front wings and engine rocker cover.

Production of this unusual car lasted until 1968, 6,555 cars had been built in the four year production run.
