Rolls-Royce 20HP, 20/25, 25/30 & Wraith in Detail
In 1922, Rolls-Royce introduced their new 20hp model, known as the Twenty - the first in a series of what are now called the 'Small Horsepower' cars.
The Twenty was replaced in 1930 by the 20/25 with a slightly larger 3.7-liter engine and then, as coachwork grew inexorably heavier, by the 4.25-liter 25/30 in 1936. The last of the pre-War cars was the Wraith, only made in 1939.

This is the first and last book the Rolls-Royce enthusiast or owner will need. Specially commissioned color photography of nine preserved examples showing variations in coachwork and body styles through the period.
The author has a reputation for digging interesting stories out of the archives - in this case the Rolls-Royce board meeting minutes and company memos.
