Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost (1907-1925)

Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Centenary The largest gathering of Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts ever, took place
on 26 May 2007 at the Rolls‑Royce plant (Goodwood, West Sussex).
More than 60 cars, built between 1907 and 1926, were displayed
before
they embarked on a 17-day, 2000-mile tour.

The Silver Ghost was first built in 1906 to publicise the then new Rolls-Royce 40/50 h.p. six-cylinder model.

The name was coined in 1907 by Rolls-Royce Managing Director, Claude Johnson, by virtue of its silver coachwork and its ‘extraordinary stealthiness’.

The original Silver Ghost, registered AX-201, competed in the 1907 Scottish Reliability Trial, for which it won the gold medal in its class for hill climbing speed and reliability.

The Silver Ghost went on in that year to break the world record for a non-stop motor run, covering a London to Glasgow route 27 times, with mileage totaling 14,371 miles.    

More than 6,000 “Silver Ghosts” were built between 1907 and 1925, and sold in every corner of the world. The majority are still in good running order.
