While no longer crafting bespoke automobiles, Rolls-Royce retains the echoes of its opulent past. Once synonymous with hand-built, silent carriages favoured by the elite, the brand diverged in 1971, with Bentley carrying the torch for luxury cars and Rolls-Royce turning its focus to aeronautical engines. Yet, the memory of legendary models like the Silver Ghost and Phantom endures, a testament to the engineering mastery and timeless elegance that remain core to the Rolls-Royce identity. Even as the brand takes to the skies and powers the oceans, the spirit of those automotive masterpieces continues to inspire a relentless pursuit of perfection and innovation in all its endeavours.
