Description

Author: Malcolm Bobbitt, Softbound, 160 Pages, ISBN: 9780750915755, Reprinted in 1999 - Second-Hand book in perfect unread condition 

For generations Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars have been renowned for their excellence all over the world. Superlative engineering, distinctive styling and meticulous construction have created a series of exceptional vehicles that other manufacturers have struggled to emulate.

This illustrated history celebrates these remarkable cars and the company that produced them. It recalls the first Rolls-Royce of 1904 and the classic models of the early years which established the unique Rolls-Royce tradition. It goes on to record the outstanding cars of the 1920s and 1930s, and the amalgamation of Rolls-Royce and Bentley in 1931, which introduced the 'silent sports car' to the range.

The postwar period, which saw dramatic changes in techniques of car-making at Rolls-Royce, is fully represented by photographs of the familiar models that enhanced the company's extraordinary reputation. The pictures take the story right up to date by showing the Rolls-Royces and Bentleys of the present day, which have been designed, tested and built with the same painstaking craftsmanship that has always characterized the company's approach to car-making.

Motoring writer Malcolm Bobbitt has brought together a varied collection of often rare photographs to create this fascinating visual account. His work will be an essential source of reference for everyone who is interested in the long history of the company, and it will be a delight to all Rolls-Royce and Bentley owners and enthusiasts. The book will also widen appreciation of the achievements of one of Britain's most distinguished and enduring motor manufacturers.
