Convinced he could build a better car than the one he was driving, engineer and perfectionist, Henry Royce, designed an automobile that was so well made, some called it perfect News of its reliability caught the attention of the young aristocrat, Charles Rolls, who was then selling cars in London. The two of them agreed that Rolls would sell all the cars that Royce could build. Three years later, in 1907, they built the most famous Rolls-Royce ever made, the "Silver Ghost". They decided to show it off by staging a 15-thousand mile, non-stop test. The car made it all the way and put Rolls-Royce on the map, justifiably claiming it to be the best car in the world. It certainly became the favourite auto of the aristocracy. Since then, "The Spirit of Ecstasy", or the flying lady, that sits on the radiator of every Rolls-Royce has come to symbolise the absolute best of everything. From the first Silver Ghost to the Phantom of today, this programme charts the history of the world's most magnificent motorcars.
