The car is the first completely streamlined Rolls Royce ever built and was designed personally by Lord Mountbatten with the help of Barkers, the coach builders. By alterations to the radiator height and the door-line, Lord Mountbatten gave the Rolls a modern appearance long ahead of its time and Rolls Royce retained their appearance for may years.
