A luxury classic car - a Phantom Rolls Royce - has been sold at a Sussex auction house for £30,000.

The rare car, one of the first B-series Phantoms, was sold by Bellmans Auctioneers in Wisborough Green to a private buyer.

The luxurious black and yellow Phantom V is believed to have represented Rolls-Royce in the 1963 Earl’s Court Motor Show.

The Phantom V had all the luxuries of its time and was equipped with a refrigerated boot, a two way telephone, privacy screen and even fitted decanters and glasses.

Unlike the Phantom IV which was only made for royalty, the V model was also sold to non-royals and as such attracted many famous owners, including John Lennon.
