The latter, a friend of Henry Royce and are among the first fans of the brand, initially sought a personal radiator mascot. It will then be taken over by the brand for all its models in order to avoid the whims of some owners, sometimes considered inappropriate by Rolls Royce … So much for the historical summary.

During this celebration, 100 representatives of the brand, from 1911 to today have been collected by individuals and by the factory for a path from circuit to Goodwood Motor Museum Beaulieu for a contest elegance.Rolls Royce centenary of the Spirit of Ecstasy
