We’ve Got Rolls Royce Touch Up Paint
What is a synonym of luxurious car if not Rolls-Royce? Initiated by Charles Stewart Rolls and Sir Frederick Henry Royce in 1904, the company was fully formed by 1906. At first, the cars were designed by Royce and distributed by Mr. Rolls. The first car presented to the public was at the Paris Salon in 1904, this first Rolls-Royce car was 10hp. The association and the car proved to be favorable and quickly warranted the construction of a plant in Derby in 1908.
In 1921, as a mean to answer the growing demand, Rolls-Royce opened a new plant in the U.S. For the ten years that the factory remained operational, Rolls-Royce produced 1 701 “Springfield Ghosts”. Then in 1931, on the main land, Rolls-Royce acquired competitor Bentley that struggled during the Great Depression. This explains the resemblances between the standard models between the two brands. In fact, they were both identical if not for the radiator grille and other minor details.
1946 marked the first year where the Rolls-Royce were completely built in-house, coachwork included, in the new plant in Crewe. The following years were marked by the prestigious customers who ordered Rolls-Royce as they were most of them heads of state or royalty.
The company sustained a decline in sales during the 70’s, in part because of a failed contract in the aircraft engine division of the business. As a result, the company was split in two between the aircraft and the car segments and in 1973 the car part of the business was sold to a private interest and separated from the nationalized aircraft part.
This was only the start of the multiple changes in ownership the company would endure. In 1980, Rolls-Royce was bought by Vickers plc, then, in 1998 Volkswagen acquired the brand. But, things were not that easy for the German constructor as the deal did not include the rights to use the “RR” insignia, rights who still belonged to the aircraft branch. As it happened, BMW who at the time had a joint venture deal with Rolls-Royce aero-engines, were awarded the licensing rights. In the end, Volkswagen kept the Crewe factory and the Bentley brand and sold the Rolls-Royce branch to BMW in 2003.
