A rare Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible owned by the late Sir Jimmy Savile has returned home to car dealers JCT600 in Leeds where it is being displayed ahead of a charity auction of Sir Jimmy’s personal effects to be held on 30 July.
The ‘Last of Line’ limited edition was number 46 in a run of just 56 cars worldwide which marked the end of 56 years of production of both Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars built together in Crewe before Rolls-Royce production moved to Goodwood in 2002.
Sir Jimmy bought the dark silver coloured car from JCT600 in 2007. The interior leather is finished in cream with French navy piping to the seats and it has a blue mohair hood.
It comes complete with Sir Jimmy’s signature, a gold plated (rather than the usual silver) ‘spirit of ecstasy’ flying lady symbol on the front of the bonnet. With less than 4,500 miles on the clock, the car has a guide price of £60,000 to £90,000.
