Looks like a Roller Silver Ghost.

Yes. Registration looks as if it could be AX 201 - if so this is a famous Rolls-Royce demonstration model which I think is still owned by RR. Also the car modelled by Matchbox in Models of Yesteryears series in 1960s.

Update from wikipedia info. If this is AX 201 it is chassis 60551 from 1907 and the only Rolls Royce 40/50hp which was officially called the Silver Ghost - the title is informal for all the other 7873 examples. And it now is owned by Bentley (ie VW).

Final nugget from Wikipedia: "The Silver Ghost is considered the most valuable car in the world; in 2005 its insured value was placed at USD $35million. Today it is valued in USD $57million." So that's about the same as one Cesc Fabregas or two Wayne Rooneys.
