Rolls-Royce is one of the most unique, recognisable car brands in the world. The word Rolls-Royce has been synonymous with luxury car travel for decades.

The brand has a long history dating back over a century. This gives the automotive company an air of sophistication and exclusivity that other luxury car brands simply don’t have.

The cars themselves are beautifully designed and constructed. They use only the finest materials and craftsmanship goes into every detail. In fact, over 60% of all Rolls-Royce cars ever constructed are still on the road (according to a National Geographic documentary). A true testament to their build quality.

This leads to how Rolls-Royce cars are extremely reliable and comfortable. This makes them perfect for chauffeur drivers, who need to be able to rely on their vehicles to get their clients to their destination, whether that is Heathrow Airport or a gala at the London Film Festival in style and comfort.

In 1906, Rolls-Royce released its first car: the Silver Ghost. This was an instant hit with the rich and famous and quickly established Rolls-Royce as a leading luxury car brand.

Over the next few decades, Rolls-Royce continued to produce innovative and luxurious cars that were beloved by the rich and famous. In 1931, they released the Phantom II, which was one of the most popular cars of its time.

In recent years, Rolls-Royce was purchased by BMW in 2003 and has continued to produce some of the most sought-after cars in the world. Their latest model, the Wraith, is a perfect example of their commitment to luxury and excellence.

Why do we use the Ghost?

The Ghost is a beautifully designed and constructed car. It uses only the finest materials, and the craftsmanship is second to none.

The Ghost is also an extremely comfortable and smooth ride. This makes it perfect as a chauffeur-driven vehicle, as it ensures that passengers arrive at their destination feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Here at Chauffeur Cars of London, we are proud to use the Rolls-Royce Ghost as one of our luxury cars of choice. The Ghost is the perfect example of everything that makes Rolls-Royce such a special car brand.

The design of the Ghost is based on a Scandinavian aesthetic. There are few distracting design flourishes to allow passengers a relaxed and unencumbered journey. However, designers did allow a couple of subtle hints of design, with the front grille glowing gently and the interior dashboard sparkling with star-like lights.

During the engineering of the Ghost, Rolls-Royce aimed to create the perfect environment for executives to travel in peace. They designed a car that excluded the outside world, however, they were too successful with the Ghost achieving an eerie silence. Test passengers reported the experience to be too quiet. When the car was moving passengers felt disorientated, it was almost like they were travelling but not moving. So Rolls-Royce engineers had to allow some outside noise into the Ghost and create a gentle whisper to still retain a quiet, but luxurious ride.

Finally, the Ghost has an undeniable air of luxury about it. This helps to create the perfect first impression for our clients, ensuring that they have a truly memorable experience when they travel with us.

If you are looking for a luxury car to use around London, then our chauffeured Rolls-Royce Ghost should be at the top of your list.

Why do we use the Phantom?

The Rolls-Royce Phantom has been used by the rich, and famous and was the preferred car of the late Queen Elizabeth the Second. So, when you ask why Chauffeur Cars of London uses the Phantom, it is hard to describe the unique feeling of being driven in such a luxurious vehicle.

The ride is exquisite. Using the Rolls-Royce ‘Architecture to Luxury’, the Phantom is built from the chassis to the steering wheel with comfort in mind for passengers. 

The design of the Phantom is iconic. When anyone thinks of a Rolls-Royce then the Phantom is the first car that comes to mind. It appears like a luxury yacht, gliding along the road with ease and elegance. 

The Phantom is a big car, and Rolls-Royce has taken this into consideration with the design of the four-wheel steering system. In places like London, the ancient streets are not designed for any cars, let alone a car the size of the Phantom. However, this is negated by the four-wheel steering system that improves the manoeuvrability of the car. At low speeds the back wheels move 3 degrees to assist with taking tight corners, and a frictionless drive.

Like the Ghost, the superior engineering makes the Phantom stand out against other cars. Everything about Rolls Royce feels expensive and luxurious, every aspect of this vehicle is tailored for a ride like no other. 

If you are looking for a luxury car to use for journeys in and around London, then our chauffeured Rolls-Royce Phantom should be preferred over any other.

Spending a day travelling around London in a Rolls-Royce is a luxury. There is no doubt about that, if you are ready to have a day like no other then chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce around London is the perfect place to start.
