Rolls Royce is the symbol of luxury when it comes to automobiles. It is a ‘BMW’ owned subsidiary company whose headquarters are located in Goodwood, West Sussex, England, United Kingdom.
The company started in 1998 and it has been termed as the most luxurious car in the world. The first car launched by Rolls-Royce was ‘Phantom’ in 2003, which was a four-door sedan. Since then every year the company sells more cars than the usual despite having a very expensive price.
Some famous Rolls-Royce models are ‘Wrath’, which is a two-door coupe, also there is a ‘Ghost’ which is a four-door sedan, ‘Dawn’ which is a four-seat luxury convertible and the latest Rolls-Royce is named as the ‘Cillinan Diamond’ which has been revealed this year but will be launched in 2019 for sales.
Here are some myths about the company:
1) The ironic ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’:
The Spirit of Ecstasy is not made up of Silver, it is made of highly polished stainless steel, the plating is of 24-carat gold. Yes, they can be customized and made it into anything depends on the customer choice. Before a 100 years, it was made up of silver and then even gold but the chances of theft were very high.
2) You can only hear the clock in the car:
This is not true that when the car is running the only sound you will be able to hear is the clock in the car. Of course, some small minute outside sound will come in the car. Since it is the best luxury car in the world they have such systems that no sound is heard, but sometimes depending on the outside situation you can hear something more than the clock fitted inside the Rolls-Royce.
3) There is an instance of a Rolls-Royce breaking down:
There were speculations after the first Rolls-Royce was launched that this car never breaks down. But recently there was a famous incident that Hollywood star, Kim Kardashian’s, Rolls-Royce Phantom broke down and as a result, it had to be towed. Other than this also there have been so many incidents over the years that a Rolls-Royce has broken down. It is a machine which is bound to have some reaction after years.
4) Some cars have been recalled:
No, it is not like that, that a Rolls-Royce has never been recalled. The procedure to buy a Rolls-Royce is after you have conveyed the decision to buy it, then the making of your luxury car starts. It is not available instantly the luxury car follows the policy of ‘Made to Order’. Rolls-Royce cars had faced some issues and they have been called back, there was an incident in 2015 and a Ghost was recalled. But like normal cars, once in a blue moon this type of issue can happen with Rolls-Royce too.
5) Luxury is not history:
Initially, a century ago, Rolls-Royce was into rally car making. The company has worked so hard that they have participated in so many endurance races just for the reason to prove that Rolls-Royce can build a reliable and high-performance luxury automobile.
6) Anyone cannot buy a Rolls-Royce:
Actually, it is the company’s decision to sell you a Rolls-Royce or not. Money cannot get you everything. The most important factor the company sees is that the person to whom they are selling should be famous and the company will decide whether the person deserves the Rolls-Royce.
