You might be surprised to learn that Rolls and Royce were actual people. Frederick Royce built the first Royce vehicles in 1904. He was a British electrical equipment manufacturer. The three two cylinder cars that Royce had built are what attracted Charles Rolls. Charles had been a car enthusiast for a long time and was the son of a baron. He had a dealership in London and was impressed with Royce’s engineering. They decided to become partners and it was decided that Royce would build the cars and Rolls would sell them.
In 1907 they introduced the Silver Ghost. It had a 6 cylinder engine and the inside was painted silver. This is the vehicle that got them noticed. Their reputation for reliability was cemented when the car was driven over 15,000 miles (very high mileage in those days) without having much wear on the car. Sadly, in 1910 Rolls was flying his biplane and crashed. He was killed instantly.
The Silver Ghost’s chassis was fortified and it was used as a combat car during WWI. After the war, the Jazz Age followed and people had money to spend. The Rolls Royce car was known by the nickname of Rollers. They even introduced a Baby Roller which was a little smaller. At this time, big cars were still very popular and the company introduce the Phantom I and Phantom II during the 1920’s.
The Rolls Royce Company grew much larger in the heady days of the 1980’s. The Silver Spur and the Silver Spirit were both huge square looking, ultra luxury cars. They were the ultimate status symbol. In 2003 the company introduced an all new Phantom that was available as a coupe, convertible or sedan. In 2004 the Rolls Royce Company celebrated its 100th Anniversary.
Rolls Royce recently introduce the Rolls Royce Ghost and it is packed full of power and luxury. This mean machine can go from zero to sixty in 4.8 seconds. It also has a top speed of 155mph. The engine is a 6.6 liter turbo charged V12. Besides being powerful it is also the one of the most luxurious vehicles on the market today.
