Unique Rolls-Royce "ride" for auction at Goodwood

Few automobiles on the road offer the kind of stately ride that a Rolls-Royce does, but this one-of-a-kind creation takes things to another level. At the upcoming Goodwood Revival later this month, Bonhams will offer a unique carousel built by Rolls-Royce in the 1930s.

Believed to have been crafted for a company field day during the Depression, the Rolls-Royce merry-go-round features 24 horses with leather saddles (none of them, to our disappointment, shaped like a giant Spirit of Ecstasy) and powered by a 50-horsepower engine from the Phantom of the day. The unique creation looks poised to deliver an open-air ride to rival even the Drophead Coupe, and is expected to fetch upwards of $60,000 when the gavel drops.
