Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost
The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, is the car that made its reputation as the
most reliable luxury car builder in the world. This shimmering car was
impossible to ignore. It quickly became known as The Silver Ghost, a name
that was bestowed on it because its shimmering appearance and the fact that
it moved as quietly as a ghost.
In 1907 the Silver Ghost name was born when Rolls-Royce managing director,
Claude Johnson, who was known for his promotional skills, silver plated all
the fittings of a 40/50 horsepower Rolls-Royce, and
while he was at it, painted the body silver.
The Silver Ghost name caught on and was eventually used for all the 40/50hp
cars built between 1907 and 1925.
The original car earned its place in automotive history by helping to forge
the reputation of Rolls-Royce as the builder of the most reliable cars in
the world. In May 1907 Johnson, under the watchful eye of the Royal
Automobile Club (RAC), drove the car to Scotland and back using just one
gear. A feat made possible by the high torque engine. The Silver Ghost
covered the 2000 mile route with no problems and later, Johnson and a team
of drivers motored effortlessly up and down Britain for almost 15,000 miles
virtually non-stop, without any breakdowns. This was more than twice the
existing record of 7,089 miles. The car was awarded a gold medal by the RAC
and it secured its place in history.
