Black Badge Ghost by Rolls-Royce for those who refuse to adhere to established conventions

1911 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost does London-Edinburgh run again after 110 years

Today, a drive from London to Edinburgh, a distance of 650+ kms, takes between 7 and 8 hours (according to Google Maps).

Rolls-Royce re-establishes its Coachbuild department to go beyond Bespoke

‘Coachbuilding’ may sound like an old or outdated term and it is indeed old – as old as the motorcar itself – but it is not outdated as it refers to the art and science of creating bespoke (custom-made) bodywork on a pre-assembled chassis.
