Here’s a little bit of history behind the luxury….
Rolls Royce was formed by the partnership of engineer, Henry Royce and motor car dealer, Charles Rolls, in 1904. Three years later their first car, the Silver Ghost was produced and by 1913 critics were calling it ‘the best car in the world.’
And John Lennon…
One of the most famous Rolls Royce owners was John Lennon whose car became infamous as well. He had his Rolls fitted out with a TV and fridge which was not exactly common in 1965! And then two years after he took ownership, Lennon decided that he wanted it painted in psychedelic colours (which was perhaps not too surprising). Rolls Royce commissioned local artist Steve Weaver to do the job, who probably didn’t imagine for one minute how famous the car would turn out to be.
