Night of 1,000 Rolls-Royces

Night of 1,000 Rolls-Royces

Words by: JARED PAUL STERN

The largest gathering of Rolls-Royces in the world took place the other day at famed Burghley House

in Lincolnshire, UK during the 56th Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club Annual Concours and Rally. Over 1000 heritage and modern Rollers took over the palatial country house built for the 1st Baron Burghley in the late 1500s. The owners at the record-breaking rally, in their finest finery, rivaled the gorgeous motorcars in their equally attractive coachwork. To say nothing of all the exorbitantly decorative females in attendance.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars honored the occasion with a record display of seven Goodwood-built Phantoms, Ghosts and Wraiths, including several Bespoke models built to showcase the best of what Rolls can do for its clientele, including the 40,000-plus color options with contrasting hand-stitched hides. The vehicles, hosted by a team of Goodwood's best craftsmen and experts, drew large crowds throughout the three day event. But don't take our word for it. "The Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club is a vital custodian of our marques remarkable history", says our man Torsten Müeller-Ötvös, Rolls CEO. Events such as the Annual Concours and Rally serve to give the wider public close access to some of the most important and rare motor cars in automotive history. The incredibly warm reaction to our stable of contemporary motor cars at these events is testament to our careful and successful custodianship of the Rolls-Royce brand. Amen to that.
