Rolls Royce 40-50hp (8 cyl) Car (Lambert & Butler Motors 12 of 25)


This is 12 of 25 in the Lambert & Butler Motors Series of Cigarette Cards issued in 1908. From the back of the card;

"This is a 6 cylinder, 40-50hp car, known as the "Silver Ghost," which, in 1907, completed under the observation of the Royal Automobile Club, a road trial of 15,000 miles, with only one involuntary stop of one minute, to turn on the petrol tap, at the 629th mile. The car holds the record (14,371 miles) for the longest run without an involuntary stop"
