Rolls-Royce, 1978, Camargue

Rolls-Royce “Camargue”, Mulliner, Park Ward, 1978

In December 1904 the Rolls-Royce company was founded by joining the activities of Henry Royce, a former mechanic who had built his first car in 1903, and Charles Stewart Rolls, third-born of a noble family and graduated at Cambridge, who had founded a company specialized in importing French and Belgian cars.

The first Rolls Royce car, the 10HP, was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in that very 1904 December. The Rolls-Royce myth was born just two years later in November, 1906 when at the London Motor Show was introduced the 40/50HP Silver Ghost, “the best car in the world”, produced with continuous updating until 1925.

RollsRoyce has never been re-known for the sports specifications of their cars and even the Camargue, whose body was designed by Pininfarina and built by Mulliner, Park Ward in England, cannot be considered really a coupe: its elegant style and its unremarkable performances are good reasons to consider it as a two-door saloon.
