Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce Limited was founded over a lunch in 1904 and 3 years later the first factory produced vehicle was released. Charles Rolls and Sir Henry Royce were the men behind a company that prides itself on the ultimate luxury experience. In Australia the Ghost and Phantom are available. The company went through a period of uncertainty under the hands of Volkswagen and BMW. Today BMW is the soul owner of Rolls-Royce and continues to use its extensive engineering expertise to advance the brand.

2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom review

Cheapest to most expensive: The car brands with the biggest price ranges

The confirmation of the pricing for the all-new Honda NSX – at a huge $420,000 plus on-road costs – made a few people in the CarAdvice office gasp. But it also got the team to thinking – that’s a big gap between the cheapest Honda model to the dearest..

Rolls-Royce: a Ghost story

When it comes to aspirational vehicles that are a true status symbol, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is part of an exclusive league consisting of very few manufacturers. From its naming conventions, to its history steeped in folklore, there's just something about the Rolls-Royce. The Ghost Series II was recently unveiled in Australia, and much like the British brand itself, has a 'Ghost story' of it's own...

Maybach Vs Rolls-Royce: No Comparison is Possible

Maybach knows exactly how it feels to be the second horse in a one-horse race. It’s a kind of ‘trying too hard’, ‘me too’ Rolls-Royce Phantom that declines to look elegant despite being expensively coiffed, and which has failed to live up to its masters’ sales expectations here and right around the world...

2020 Rolls-Royce Ghost spied

The next-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost has been photographed on the back of a flat-bed truck, wedged between a pair of BMW X5 crossovers. Compared to today's car, the new Ghost looks to have a more heavily raked boot lid for a slightly sportier look, although there's still no danger of it being branded as a "four-door coupe"...
