Rolls Royce Boat-Tailed Speedster
- : 1931
From 1904 through the present day the Rolls Royce name has become internationally known as the very finest in automotive engineering and luxury. Founded by Charles Rolls and Henry Royce, Rolls had the sales skills and Royce possessed the production and design knowledge to create a great team. They set new standards for excellence and the wealthy felt that a Rolls Royce in their garage was necessary equipment.
Sadly Charles Rolls has the distinction of being the first aviator to be killed in England in an aircraft accident.
