The well-recognized Rolls Royce brand has undergone many transformations and permutations over the decades. Its history however, can be traced back to the turn of the nineteenth century and two men: Henry Royce and Charles Rolls. The first car to bear their famous joint signature was the Rolls Royce 10 HP, which today carries an air of almost alien old world elegance, but from that car one could spy the enduring character of the brand. Rolls Royce Limited would be formed in 1906, experiencing a long and interesting life – even aside from consumer automobile production. They would go on to be instrumental in producing various vehicles and vehicle parts for the British military, which would serve in both World Wars. They would buy out Bentley in 1931 and the two would become their own sort of Luxury juggernaut.
In the years following World War II they would expand and further entrench themselves as a popular producer of luxury cars. However, the automotive wing of the company would break from the main branch in 1973 after financial collapse and subsequent nationalization. The new entity Rolls Royce Motors would be acquired by Vickers, then sold to Volkswagen. Later Volkswagen would make an agreement with BMW, who currently hold the iconic Rolls Royce marque!
