John M. Stephens bought the first Silver Ghost in 1906, and commissioned this 1912 Silver Ghost Double Pullman Limousine, having former royal carriage-maker Barker’s of Mayfair make the body to a level of luxury few cars have ever reached

July 31st, 2017 by admin

Recently auctioned for £4,705,500, making it the most expensive Rolls-Royce ever sold at auction,

Possibly the most magnificent Rolls-Royce ever built: Its gleaming interior fittings are made of silver and ivory, while the door panels are embroidered silk, with brocade tassels attached to silk window shades for privacy.

The passenger footrest hides a full picnic set for four, a china tea service, complete with an alcohol-fuelled burner and kettle to heat the water, and a set of six decanters – three in sterling silver and three in leather-wrapped glass.

Unlike most car enthusiasts of his time, Mr Stephens, asked the makers not to include a glass division window between the driver and the passengers as he wanted to drive it himself rather than rely on a chauffeur.

Mr Stephens’s car is believed to be the only one of its kind to survive with its full interior and bodywork, as many Rolls-Royces from the era were converted into ambulances during the First World War.

From boxes of parts to a wonderful restored car… 1911 RR Silver Ghost

March 13th, 2017 by admin

This car started life in 1911 but after several owners it was acquired by one T.G. Rose and embarked on a 30 year excursion to Barbados.

In 1949 it returned to the UK and saw service as the starters car for the Newmarket Horse races

the Shell 4000 Cross Canada Rally in 1963, strangely, had a pair of Chrysler 300s in full rally race mode

October 7th, 2016 by admin

The Shell 4000 was the worlds longest, most grueling rally in the 60’s, and the only FIA sanctioned one in North America.

For the rally cars, Chrysler chose the 413 with 360 horsepower and a simple four barrel carb backed with the Torqueflite three speed automatic transmission. Both cars were two door hardtops and set up by Carl Prueths for rally racing with complete chassis protection using 3/4 inch welded steel plate on items deemed to be in danger including shock absorbers, engine oil pan, the K frame cradle, rear axle carrier and the leaf springs. A roof lamp was mounted providing high power wattage to light up the road ahead and help set up the car for turns. Even the tires and wheels were heavy duty. The 300 usually ran 14 inch rims with nice cushy road tires. These rally 300s came with 15 inch weld reinforced steel wheels with special 9.00x 15 inch Goodyear non expanding braced tread tires imported from Belgium.

The drivers were Gene Henderson with Fred Browne as navigator and the second car had Terry Sumner and Roger Bohl as navigator. Both cars were painted white with blue stripes in the center.

Starting in Vancouver, to Calgary, Regina, Winnepeg, along the north shore of Lake Superior, Chrysler proved that if soundly designed and properly equipped, even a Pentastar Panzer will be a competitive rally car..

The rally was annual from 1961 through 1968, then Shell ended it’s participation. A similar rally was held again in 1971, 1994, 95, and last in 1997. In 2009, Napa had a 500 mile rally.

That 1st rally even had a V12 Rolls Royce, and it weighed 7000 pounds

I hope someone tells Rolls Royce prototype designers that tiny detail about streamlining the front tires… it changes the aero dymanics a lot when you turn them… aka the Stutz Blackhawk effect

June 22nd, 2016 by admin

Rolls Royce Motor Cars has unveiled a concept car that showcases what the firm thinks luxury vehicles might look like in 100 years’ time. The “Vision Next 100″ is a 5.9 metre-long zero-emission, self-driving car complete with an artificial intelligence virtual assistant and a silk sofa – but no steering wheel.

Keep in mind the following is a 360 degree video, pull it around

The Stutz effect I mentioned in the title? That’s due to what they learned when land speed racing on Daytona Beach with the Stutz Blackhawk.

At 220, it went barrel rolling… you simply can’t change the aero at that speed without disastrous effect

the Rolls Royce White Glove Chauffer Training Program

May 13th, 2016 by admin

About a century ago, when Rolls-Royce began to acquire its sterling reputation, the maharajahs and magnates who imported the cars from England discovered that in many parts of the world, good drivers were harder to find than good cars. So they had Rolls-Royce train drivers to match its cars.

The drivers who attend his course typically work for single owners or hotel fleets. New owners can send their drivers to England for training. For example, the Louis XIII hotel in Macau recently began sending 30 drivers for training in anticipation of the arrival of its 30 new Rolls-Royce Phantoms — the largest single order ever, according to the company. 2 of the Rolls will be the most expensive Phantoms ever commissioned due to gold plated interior and exterior pieces

A majority of the training is etiquette.

Never greet your passengers wearing sunglasses.

You don’t accelerate, you “gain momentum”.

The sound system is playing a classical station at low volume.

If luggage is to be loaded, secure it in the trunk before opening the vehicle for your passengers. This prevents theft or forgetfulness, and while pulling wheeled suitcases along sidewalks is permissible, never across the street or on the road, to prevent the luggage wheels from getting dirty, oily or greasy. Also, query the passengers about their luggage to be sure none was left behind, and this will have the 2nd function of putting them at ease during the trip, as they won’t be concerned about luggage.

When opening a door, do not grasp the handle, merely pull outward. This technique avoids fingerprints on the Phantom’s exterior.

Before driving along,
