An art-filled Rolls-Royce regarded as a palace on wheels and one of the finest British cars ever made is expected to sell for $853,888 at auction.

The Phantom I was commissioned in 1926 by Woolworths' financial director Clarence Gasque as a surprise gift for his wife, Maude.

To ensure she was suitably impressed, Gasque set out on a no-expense-spared project that resulted in the rear seats costing more than the average home.
