HIGH-FLYING ROLLER: The 2.5-ton car from a museum in Austria was hooked to the Saentis aerial tramway for the ride.

SAENTIS, Switzerland - A Rolls-Royce Phantom 2 cabriolet built in 1930 by English coach-builder HJ Mulliner has been lifted to the top of north-east Switzerland's highest peak to take part in an exhibition.

The 2.5-ton car from a museum in Austria was slung under a Saentis aerial tramway cable-car for the ride to the summit near Appenzell at an altitude of 2502m - twice the height of Table Mountain.

FOUR-MONTH DISPLAY

Transporting the Rolls under the cable car took a whole day after the operation was postponed twice because of bad weather.

The luxury convertible will be on display until April 21 before it is returned to the Rolls-Royce Museum in Dornbirn, Austria, where it has been on display 1982.
