The Rolls-Royces are coming: No Vintage Car Show worth its salt would be complete without a display of the cars that since the beginning of the 20th century were born into the role of chauffeuring the world's VIPs; from royalty and heads of State to rock stars & celebrities, who chose the marque as a symbol of their success.
|Regarded as one of the finest cars ever to wear the famous “Flying Lady” mascot, |
the Phantom II remains a firm favourite with Rolls-Royce enthusiasts
and collectors around the world.
From one of our esteemed car collecting patrons who will be bringing no less then three outstanding examples of Pre-WWII Rolls-Royces to our Show. These cars have a timeless appeal and won't they bring an elegant presence and true feeling of prestige in Vintage motor cars to the tiles of the Cronulla Mall.
The three Rolls-Royce vehicles that we will have on display are: A Silver and Black 1925 Phantom I, an Ivory and Black 1929 Phantom II and an Ivory over Beige Phantom III V12.
|Their Royal Highnesses Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip commissioned |
one of the very first Phantom IVs, with a specially modified driver’s seat
as the Duke of Edinburgh liked to drive it himself.
A little history: Rolls-Royce Limited owned a British luxury car and aero engine manufacturing business founded in 1904 by Charles Stewart Rolls and Frederick Henry Royce. Rolls-Royce Limited was incorporated on 15 March 1906 as a vehicle for their ownership of their Rolls-Royce business.
Their business quickly developed a reputation for superior engineering quality and for manufacturing the "best car in the world", building on FH Royce's existing standing. Rolls-Royce became a leading manufacturer of piston aero-engines after it was brought into building them by the First World War.
|Phantom III V-12 - In the mid-1930s, Rolls-Royce produced the third generation |
of the Phantom. This new one was also the first ever Phantom to
feature a V12 engine, and the only V12 up until 1998.
From 1940, Rolls-Royce participated in the development of the jet engine and built for itself, and retains, a pre-eminent position in aero engine development and manufacture for use in defence and civil aircraft.
