A Unique Ghost Un­veiled

Pinnacle (Singapore) - - CON­TENTS -

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.
