They were introduced as the "40/50HP Rolls-Royce" in 1906 but since 1907 when AX201 was badged as "The Silver Ghost" they all are commonly called as "Silver Ghost". But even the Phantom I and the Phantom were 40/50 HP cars, what is another reason to call these early cars simply Silver Ghost

This is chassis #2260E of 1913. The body is the 3rd one, built in the style of Radley's Alpine Trials car by Redding.

According to Autocar 26/06/13, 4 cars were entered on the 1913 Alpine "Alpenfahrt" Trial - 3 works cars and one private entry by James Radley, who redesigned some of the factory body; none of the works cars survive, and this is the Radley car. The grille mascot is a bronze naked woman created by a Viennese sculptor. Other sources describe a later racing career at Brooklands and then in late 30s being converted into a breakdown truck and then disappearing - presumed lost. Rediscovered 1950 and later massive rebuild/resto to 1913 spec, and well known privately owned car regularly appearing on prestige retro events and runs, including a centenary re-run of the 1913 event - Link to "www.first4auto.com"

Also appeared at 2013 Shanghai Auto Show alongside new RR Ghost Alpine Trial Centenary Collection edition in similar blue livery - 35 to be made and the first ever RR with factory painted radiator grille - Link to "motoren.wordpress.com" , http://altamartrip.com/auto-shanghai-2013/
