The British brand "Rolls-Royce" is associated by many with expensive and luxury cars, which are the standard of excellence in their class.
In 2004, Rolls-Royce celebrated its centenary, because the business of producing prestigious cars began back in 1904, when the first model left the factory territory. This car still exists and is in excellent condition. Founded by Charles Stewart Rolls and Frederick Henry Royce.
Until about 1925, the company specialized in the development and sale of sports and racing cars, which have repeatedly won various rallies. Of these, it is worth noting the Silver Ghost with a seven-liter six-cylinder engine, distinguished by its quiet operation. For those days, it was a breakthrough in the concept of comfort. The car even received the title of "best in the world" and its sales were consistently high, despite the rather high price.
During the years of the first world, the company survived due to the production of aircraft engines. And in the post-war period, Rolls-Royce again took up the development of cars.
After 1925, Rolls-Royce released the Phantom luxury series from the assembly line, which included 3 modifications, which were distinguished by high power potential of the engine and luxury of the interior. Unlike the first Phantom modification, two of its descendants had an original and very graceful exterior. The fourth and fifth generations of this series were developed after World War II and were sold exclusively to aristocrats who were part of the British royal court.
In the post-war 1940s, Rolls-Royce resumed production and sales of the Silver series, significantly modifying the interior and exterior. In total, 6 models were developed in this line, other Silver Cloud was produced in three generations, united by the presence of a powerful power unit and original metal body shapes. Silver Shadow was an attempt to create a budget mass car. Its production was discontinued in 1980 due to the nationalization of the company.
Since the 80s, after the official bankruptcy, the company began to pass from hand to hand. Nevertheless, the constant resale of the brand does not stop the developers and, already as a division of BMW, Rolls-Royce released several more cars from the Silver and Fantom series.
In 2009, the Rolls-Royce Ghost was introduced, which was named after the Silver Ghost, released in 1906. The car received the most powerful engine ever installed on a car of this brand - 563 horsepower. And in 2013, Ghost was released with an updated design.
