Rolls Royce / Brand Stories

Güncelleme tarihi: 27 Tem

The Rolls-Royce brand, which was founded in the early 1900s, is a combination of the surnames of the British Henry Royce and Charles Rolls.


The first model is the Rolls-Royce 10 HP and is introduced at the 1904 Paris Motor Show.


Interestingly, the gray car driven by Claude Johnson, one of the company executives, soon became a phenomenon when the press and the public called it the Silver Ghost.


In addition to breaking sea and air records with the "R" engine it produced, in 1907, a Silver Ghost was awarded the title of "World's Best Car" by traveling between London and Glasgow 27 times without stopping its engine (14,371 miles).


Designed at the special request of Lord John Walter Edward Douglas Scott Montagu, the emblem was made by a sculptor named Charles Sykes. The successful sculptor used Eleanor Velasco Thornton, who was Lord Montagu's secretary and lover, as a model when designing this emblem.


Rolls-Royce Motors, Rolls-Royce and Bentley brand division separated from Rolls-Royce Limited in 1973. In 1998, Rolls-Royce and Bentley were separated from each other and Bentley Motoros Limited joined the Volkswagen group; Rolls-Royce passed under BMW control as Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.


The interior designs of Rolls-Royce's automobiles, which are custom-made, are still used by hand, without using machinery. This is one of the brand criteria that makes it unique.
