Synopsis: For most of the 20th century right through the present day, the Rolls Royce has stood as the prime symbol of quality and luxury. And here, in its sixth edition, is the fully-updated tribute to these classic cars and the men who created them. First, an engrossing and exquisitely illustrated history of the Rolls Royce covers everything from the birth of the Rolls as a two-cylinder vehicle in 1904 to its recent sale to Volkswagen. Follow the development of the Silver Ghost, the New Phantom, the Bentley and the Wraith, the Shadows and Spirits. The entire second section presents, in detail and with photographs, car and engine specifications. Included are the dates of major mechanical changes and the chassis numbers of the three Royce cars from 1904 to the Park Ward model of 2000, as well as the Bentleys built since 1931. This is truly a celebration worthy of a Rolls!
