Rolls Royce Phantom Modified for Tiger Hunting is Up for Auction

 

Bonhams is auctioning an extremely rare 1925 Rolls Royce Phantom which was modified by Umed Singh II, the maharaja of Kotah, for tiger hunts at a time when the sport was extremely popular in India.

The car is flaming red with a convertible roof of canvas; hunting features include a double-barreled shotgun, night-hunting spotlights and a mountable Lantaka cannon. It will probably fetch up to $1 million.

The Rolls will be auctioned next month in Carmel, California. It likely played a small role in the decimation of the Bengal tiger population of India, which was about 40,000 a century ago and is just 1,700 today.
