Rolls-Royce was on the idea and innovative creation of Frederick Henry Royce, which began an electrical and mechanical business in 1884. He designed and created his first “Royce” in his Manchester factory in 1904. On May 4, 1884, Royce met with Charles Stewart Rolls at the Midland Hotel in Manchester and came to an agreement. Royce would create the cars and they would sold exclusively by Rolls. In the contract, a clause was added that stipulated the cars would go under the name “Rolls-Royce.” On March 15, 1906, the Rolls-Royce Company was founded. In 1908, the company was moved to Derby.

From 1906 through 1925, the most popular car and the one that helped to create Rolls-Royce’s reputation was the Silver Ghost. There were 6,173 Silver Ghost’s manufactured with a 6 cylinder engine. In 1921, Rolls-Royce opened another factory in Springfield, Massachusetts, United States. Here there were 1,701 Springfield Ghosts manufactured. This factory was closed in 1931.

In 1931, Rolls-Royce purchased Bentley who could not survive financial during the Great Depression. From this time until 2002, many people could not tell a Bentley from a Rolls-Royce except for the radiator grille and a few other minor details.

In 1946, the production of cars was moved to Crewe and then in 1959 to Mulliner Park Ward in London.

In 1973, Rolls-Royce was demerged with the outcome being Rolls-Royce Limited, which would manufacture jet engines, and Rolls-Royce Motors for automobiles.

In 1980, Vickers purchased Rolls-Royce Motors. In 1998, Vickers decided to sell; the two top bidders were BMW and Volkswagen. In a strange split, Volkswagen received the Spirit of Ecstasy mascot, the shape of the radiator grille, but not the rights to the name Rolls-Royce that BMW received but not the grille and mascot.

Finally, BMW and Volkswagen came up with an agreement. BMW would supply engines for the cars and would allow Volkswagen to use the name until January 1, 2003. After this date, BMW would use the name Rolls-Royce and Volkswagen’s Rolls-Royce/Bentley division would use the name Bentley.

The cars produced under the Rolls-Royce name include 10hp, 15 hp, 20 hp, 30 hp, V-8, 40/50 Silver Ghost, 40/50 Phantom, Phantom II, Phantom III, Wraith, Silver Wraith, Silver Dawn, Phantom IV, Silver Cloud, Phantom V, Phantom VI, and the Silver Shadow.
