There’s nothing quite like buying something that comes with a consolation prize, like a box of Cracker Jacks that contains a secret decoder ring, or a 1925 Rolls-Royce that comes with an elephant gun.
If you love rare and exotic cars, large caliber rifles, and have $500,000 burning a hole in your pocket, well, this should come as good news.
This heavily armed 1925 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Maharaja “tiger car” comes complete with a rear bumper-mounted elephant gun, a double-barrel pistol, and a massive .450-caliber, hand-cranked machine gun towed behind the car. It’s also part of the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company’s annual three-day sale in Las Vegas, Nevada, which began Thursday.
Describing the vehicle, Barrett-Jackson said, “Equipped for hunting Bengal tigers and other wild game, this especially opulent and intriguing 1925 Rolls-Royce Torpedo Sports Tourer was originally commissioned by India’s Umed Singh II…”
The auction house expects the rare vehicle will bring in between $500,000 and $1 million.
