Charles Rolls and Henry Royce created history by forming a company in 1906, which would go on to become one of the most respected automotive brands - Rolls Royce. The name itself is sufficient to spark special sentiments inside an individual. Rolls Royce's Silver Ghost, Silver Shadow, Phantom are just some of the names that are synonymous with sheer luxury and opulence. Rolls Royce Motors came into existence in 1973 when its car business seperated from Rolls Royce Limited. Quite a few mergers followed from thereon with Veckers acquiring the marque in 1980 only to sell it to Volkswagen in 1988. BMW took the ownership from VW in 2003. ROlls Royce is selling its Phantom in the Indian market. In acutely small numbers. The Phantom Drophead Coupe might follow in due course of time. But such lavishness is not everyone's cuppa tea!
