The white car in the middle has a Rolls Royce grille

White RR Silver Cloud or Bentley S on left, blue Bentley something (S? or earlier??) on right. The middle car seems the one to go for, if a good ID is possible.

The centre car looks like a coachbuilt dhc on possibly a Wraith or 25/30 chassis, no better can I do, I'm afraid. The blue one is a Bentley Mk VI or R-type standard steel saloon, probably Mk VI on numbers built, but it's not possible to count the grille bars, so no better ID from me, anyway.

If, by some chance, the dhc is a late Phantom, someone may know of the actual car.

You may be right, with a Royce grille added, but the picture is very poor in definition.

I agree with Jaguar Mk V. Bumpers, headlights, style, and the roof are the arguments.

This was a low-budget slasher film from 1980, much of the outside filming was done without permits and shot in (what appears to be) 16mm film - not the best quality, unfortunately.
