Now this is just the thing for the budding Funny Little Wars or Wellsian army - a hand built Rolls Royce complete with a veritable arsenal of weaponry designed for hunting tigers....
I kid you you not - and it is up for auction at Bonhams on August 19th!
From the net: "With its swivelling searchlights and arsenal of animal-killing weaponry, this isn't just any old Rolls Royce. It's a 1925 Torpedo Tourer or 'Tiger Car' built for Umed Singh II, a maharajah who was rather fond of hunting the big cats. Before anyone gets excited, the rather grand vehicle does come with a price tag that warrants a deep sniff of the smelling salts. Next month it will be one of six pre-war Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars up for grabs when Bonhams holds its annual auction on the Monterey Peninsula in California.
Just the thing for the shopping run then and you would never have to worry about a parking space....;-)
