Sometimes the best things come from a passion for creation, the love of a craft. Rolls-Royce was born because of something Frederick Henry Royce couldn’t stand: a poorly made vehicle. Royce, an English engineer, had his own engineering firm when he bought his first car in 1903. He was so dissatisfied with the car that he built his own, and two others, over the course of the next year. Through a friend of a friend, Royce was introduced to Charles Rolls, who saw the quality of Royce’s originals and picked up the exclusive rights to sell everything Royce could produce.

The two went on to create one of the most renowned brands in the world, and not just of automobiles. Royce’s engineering carried over into aeronautics to become one of the premier names in World War II allied aircraft. For 60 years the company remained independent, but the 1970’s forced the aircraft and automotive divisions of Rolls-Royce to part ways, purchased by separate entities. In 1998, Volkswagen picked up the rights to produce Rolls-Royce vehicles, which they would later sell to BMW. In 2003, BMW delivered all-new Phantom.

The Rolls-Royce homepage opens with a video detailing the Roller experience. We get to watch a Phantom Drophead Coupe cruise shoreline roads and winding paths to a winery. The video showcases everything that makes a Rolls-Royce unique, from the attention to the smallest details to the massive power beneath every hood. The page also offers a nice history and a look at the models Rolls-Royce currently produces.

Rolls-Royce at Wikipedia
The Rolls-Royce page at Wikipedia is really a portal to the articles concerning the three Rolls eras: Rolls-Royce Limited, Rolls-Royce Motors, and the Rolls of today, Rolls Royce Motorcars. Each individual page showcases the achievements of the brand during the time period, with some excellent shots of this classic, high-class car.
