The rear compartment is a magnificent reproduction of the Rothschild original. Flamboyant interiors were often found on the 40/50 hp. In 1921 an Indian maharajah commissioned two cars with interior fittings in gold, silver, and mother-of-pearl, and trimmed in mauve silk: The cost was L 6,000 a car, at a time when a humble Morris started at L 299.
