Rolls-Royce Ltd. was an English company in the automotive and aeronautical sector active under this name until 1973, when the English government, then owner of the entire British automotive sector, decided to divide the automotive activities which were thriving and they towed the entire industrial group, from aeronautical activities, activities that were, however, in crisis due to the development of the RB211 jet engine; thus the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars for the automotive sector were born, while Rolls-Royce Ltd. would continue to produce aeronautical engines. Rolls-Royce Ltd was officially founded on 15 March 1906, but finds its foundations in the agreement reached on 4 May 1904 by the aristocrat Charles Rolls and the engineer Sir. Henry Royce. The meeting organized in Manchester by Enerst Claremont, Royce's partner in Royce Ltd, led to the agreement that Charles S. Rolls would handle the sales of the automobiles designed and built by Henry Royce. An agreement which soon led to the creation of the company which is still today synonymous with quality and reliability, principles on which the British car manufacturer has always been based and which derive from Sir's spasmodic and constant search for perfection. Henry Royce.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost is a specific automobile produced in 1907 by Rolls-Royce Ltd, it is the twelfth example built of the model originally called 40/50 Hp and with chassis number 60551. Claude Johnson, the dash between the writing Rolls and Royce , ordered from Barker a 4/5 seat Touring body with silver paint and silver trim which was nicknamed "The Silver Ghost" and from 1925 the 40/50 Hp series was generically renamed Silver Ghost. On the other hand, chassis 551 is the car thanks to which in 1907 Rolls-Royce earned the title of best car in the world by covering 14,731 miles without voluntary stops between London and Glasgow.
