The Vanden Plas Princess 4. 0 R with its Rolls-Royce
all-aluminium 175bhp engine was announced in August 1964. An
unusually high power to weight ratio enabled the car to cruise at
90mph and was capable of 112mph. Under the bonnet was a result of
more than two years technical collaboration between BMC
and Rolls-Royce. Twin SU carburettors were fitted. both the
cylinder block and head were aluminium. tappets were hydraulic
self-adjusting operating on overhead valves configuration and the
counter-balanced crankshaft ran in seven main bearings. reducing
vibration. The Princess was priced on a par with a Jaguar Mk. X; it
was a major change of market positioning aimed at the growing
prestige and executive market in Europe and the United States. The
4. 0 R was luxurious with polished walnut fascia. padded top and
bottom. fully reclinable leather seats and polished picnic tables
for the rear passengers. A new automatic transmission was provided
by Borg-Warner; its first use in a British car. br/>and Hydrosteer variable ratio power steering accompanied
wider tyres.



Despatched by Vanden Plas at Kingsbury on 14th February 1965. this Princess 4. 0
R was originally registered on 3rd March 1965. Classed as a
luxurious car in its day. this Princess is finished in two-tone
paintwork. peat over stone. with champagne leather trim. The wood
veneers have recently been restored and the car benefits from
sustained investment resulting in one of the finest Vanden Plas
Princess 4. 0 R's available today. A comprehensive history file
dating back to 1988 is supplied with GPK884C together with a V5
registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until
9th December 2013. Given the
estimate. this is a fascinating classic for a modest
investment.
