The 1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith touring limousine that served as Dudley Moore’s ride in 1981′s Arthur will be sold during Auctions America by RM’s Collector Cars of Fort Lauderdale sale on March 16-18 in Fort Lauderdale.
Originally delivered on July 10, 1956, to Mme. A.W. Frink at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris, the car’s coachwork was completed by the famed H.J. Mulliner.

Arthur, of course, used it as a sort of gin palace on wheels, and we bet that wasn’t always water Moore swilled and spilled while filming.
The original, of course, is inestimably cooler as a pop culture artifact than anything connected to that Russell Brand remake.
So soak up a little Arthur attitude with a bid on this beauty—about 125 grand should do the trick…
