Rolls-Royce History

1911 Rolls-Royce 40/50 HP Silver Ghost

Share on:

This car was originally built for Robert Hardy Williamson, a successful ship builder from the Northwest coast of England. Most Silver Ghosts are just that - silver - having German silver brightwork. When Williamson first saw the car, he thought it should be brass like other cars of the era, and had it changed. This car is an early 'Ghost,' being built before the First World War. But it is still quite capable, having traveled over 6,500 miles last summer in the UK and through the French and Swiss Alps.
