A Unique Ghost Unveiled
An extremely special collection of pristine Rolls-Royce motor cars from the past through to the present is on display at the “Strive for Perfection” exhibition held at BMW Welt (World) in Munich.
The showcase was originally planned to be open to the public for 12 months, but the duration was extended to Oct 30 this year due to popular demand. Inside, visitors can view motorcars such as modern Phantom Coupé and Wraith models, as well as the stunning sky-blue and white 1926 Rolls-Royce 10EX Phantom I Open Streamline Sports Tourer with legendary coachworks by Barker.
The oldest model on display is Chassis 32PB – a burgundy 1914 Silver Ghost London to Edinburgh Tourer by Wilkinson.
Apart from the 15 Rolls-Royce models, visitors can also view historical displays of British craftsmanship such as shoes and handbags, in collaboration with the esteemed Victoria & Albert Museum.
The museum is located directly across the street from BMW Welt, beside the Olympic Park.The cars are housed in a circular building, with a spiral road winding from top to bottom, which is how the exhibition is arranged from past to present. There is also a display to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Spirit of Ecstasy that graces the bonnet of every Rolls-Royce made since 1911.
After visiting this exhibition, the first of its kind outside of the UK, you can enjoy food and refreshments on the cafe patio and visit the gift store, before checking out BMW’s prestigious history of manufacturing automobiles and motorcycles in the main exhibition area of the museum.
