Gooding & Company
Although all Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts were works of art, this one -- part of the Richard Solove collection of Silver Ghosts auctioned at Pebble by Gooding & Company -- was the collector's favorite. (Its nickname, "The Corgi," reflects the fact that the model car company made a famous miniature of this vehicle.) It is also the only Barker Pullman-bodied Silver Ghost in existence today.
Although Rolls' "Spirit of Ecstasy" adorns the hood, the otherwise finely detailed, one-off coach work has room for a tribe of adventurers. Consider it, if you must, as the world's greatest precursor to the seven-passenger SUV.
Proceeds from the sales of all the Solove Silver Ghosts went to cancer research.
