Rolls-Royce introduced its first car to market in 1906, the Silver Ghost, which ran non-stop for a record breaking 24,000 kilometres. In 1973, the company split, and the car division became a separate entity known as Rolls-Royce Motors. Rolls-Royce cars have become synonymous with luxury and longevity, with 65% of cars ever built still on the road today. Despite Volkswagen offering more, Rolls-Royce Motors was sold to BMW in 1998 due to their joint business ventures. The Phantom is the first BMW made Rolls-Royce, and customers can choose from 44,000 different colours. Even today all Rolls-Royce engines are entirely hand built, and they do not breakdown, instead they ‘fail to proceed’ (how very noble).
