Triumph Motor Company began in 1897 as the Triumph Cycle Company by Siegfried Bettmann. In 1902, it began creating motorcycles along with their original bicycles. Most of what they manufactured at this time was from used parts; however, by 1907 they had moved their plants and began creating their own parts. During World War I, they received several orders for their 550 cc Model H from the British Army. by 1918, they were the largest motorcycle maker in Britain.

In 1919, Claude Holbrook joined as general manager and by 1921 suggested that Bettmann purchased the assets of Dawson Car Company. After this purchase was made, production began on the 1.4-liter model by the name of Triumph 10/20. The design was the creation of Lea-Francis who received a royalty of every car sold. In 1927, the Triumph Super 7 was unveiled and was sold until 1934.

1930 brought the new name of Triumph Motor Company. At this time, Triumph Motor Company was using used engines with designs from Coventry Climax. In 1937, they began to create their own designs by Donald Healey who was assigned the position of experimental manager in 1934.

In 1936, financial troubles were seen which caused the sale of the bicycle and motorcycle business. Healey purchased an Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 and created a new car with an Alfa inspired straight 8 engine which was named Triumph Dolomite.

In July 1939, the company went into receivership and everything was offered for sale. T.W. Ward purchased the company and gave Healey the position of general manager. However, World War II stopped all production of cars as it did for many European car manufacturers. The factory was totally destroyed by bombs in 1940.

After the war, Triumph Motor Company along with the brand name was purchased by Standard Motor Company in 1944. A subsidiary was created by the name of Triumph Motor Company. The new models of Triumph had no design similar to the pre-war era. As early as 1946, the new model seen was the Triumph 1800 Roadster. Steel was in short supply during this time and aluminum was used for the body.

In the 1950’s, the Triumph name began to be used on sports cars and saloons. In 1953, the Triumph TR2 was unveiled and was manufactured until 1955. The Triumph TR3 was built from 1955-1957. 40,253 Triumph TR4 cars were built from 1961-1965. The Triumph TR250 and TR5 was built from 1967-1968. The Triumph TR6 was manufactured from 1969-1976, and was followed by the Triumph TR7 from 1974-1981. The more powerful Triumph TR8 was built from 1977 to 1978. The Triumph Spitfire was built from 1962 through 1980.

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.
