Founding Fathers

On 4th May 1904 the brilliant

northern engineer Frederick Henry

Royce met with a young aristocratic

car salesman the Honourable

Charles Stewart Rolls and agreed to

start a company. The unlikely duo

decided that Royce would design and

manufacture the cars and Rolls, with

his wealthy connections, would sell

them. The vehicles would be called

Rolls-Royce.


Since the production of the very first

vehicle, Rolls-Royce has built the

very best motor cars of their time,

becoming the classics of today. The

21st century Rolls-Royce had to be

worthy of a new century. In January

2003, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Saloon

arrived, it was a momentous occasion

in automobile history.


The Rolls-Royce Phantom Saloon at the Villa D’Este, Italy.


Phantom Saloon

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Saloon

is very much a British production.

The design was developed in London

at studios code-named ‘The Bank’

after the building’s previous function;

many of the designers and engineers

are British, and the car rolls off the

production line at the purpose-built

Goodwood facility in Sussex.


The design team set out to ensure the

Phantom is every inch a Rolls-Royce,

a long wheelbase and bonnet, short

front overhang, large wheels and a

presence which is both confident and

imposing.

The use of advanced aluminium space

frame for the body/chassis unit has

meant rigidity on a scale for a car

of the Phantom’s size and weight is

unequalled.


Powered by the mighty V12 6.75-litre

engine producing 453bhp and 531

lb ft of torque, the Phantom Saloon

takes just 5.7 seconds to reach 60mph

and will continue to an electronically

limited top speed of 149mph.

With cues taken from the past but

a truly contemporary design, the

Phantom is indeed a modern classic.

This perfectly proportioned

Rolls-Royce is perfect for the

owner and, indeed, driver of today.

A luxurious cabin is combined with

the ‘waftability’ of driving or being

driven in a true Rolls-Royce.

100EX

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited

unveiled its most recent experimental

car, the 100EX, at the Geneva Motor

Show in 2004.

A 9-litre V16, 64 valve engine throbbed

at the heart of the open-top, fourseater,

two-door drophead.

In 1919 the 1EX, based on the Silver

Ghost chassis, was the first in a long

line of EX cars which spanned almost

40 years and ended with the 45EX

in 1958. Many of the EX cars went

into full production as will a modified

version of the 100EX.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited - The Company

When the new company came into

being, a factory was needed to create

the new car. The Goodwood facility

in the 42-acre grounds of the Earl of

March’s famous Goodwood Estate,

which has its own motor racing

heritage, was ideal.

It’s hard to believe that a centre of

engineering and technical excellence

exists in such peaceful surroundings,

the factory blending effortlessly with

the natural surroundings which include

landscaped gardens and a causeway

spanning a peaceful lake.


Rolls-Royce’s Goodwood facility in Sussex.


The roof lines have been kept low

allowing the facility to blend in with

its surroundings. Part of the building

has been built below ground and

by covering the exposed roof with

sedum plants, it changes colour with

the seasons. However this is not just

aesthetic as it also acts as insulation.

Other environmentally friendly

touches can be found throughout

the site, the lakes cool the building’s

air supply, and make up part of the

facility’s drainage, whilst glass walls

provide so much natural light that

artificial lighting is kept at a minimum.


The Phantom Saloon makes several

stops on its journey through the

Goodwood factory.

The facility itself is a fascinating mix

of state-of-the-art technology and

old fashioned craftsmanship. Specialist

craftsman and women work alongside

and in harmony with some of the

world’s most sophisticated equipment.


In the wood workshop, the Phantom’s

bespoke interior begins to take on

its very own character. The finest

veneers cover 1.7 square metres

of the cars interior, this intricate

woodwork is undertaken by the 29

skilled experts who take as long as

30 days to produce all the separate

wooden elements required.


Inside the Rolls-Royce Phantom Saloon is pure luxury.


The same high levels of skill and

attention to detail are found in the

leather workshop where handpicked

hides arrive from a specialist tannery.

Many of the expert leather workers

and seamstresses were sailmakers and

saddlers before joining the company

and their craftsmanship is obvious.

We strongly recommend that our

customers experience the Goodwood

factory and all its customer facilities

for themselves, an experience that we

are more than happy to arrange.


Rolls-Royce craftsmen and women hand pick and hand finish the marketry veneer.
