Description
This motor car with a two-cylinder water-cooled engine, designed by Sir Frederick Henry Royce (1863-1933) is the oldest original Rolls-Royce motor car in existence. From December 1904, prior to the creation of Rolls-Royce Ltd in 1906, cars made at Royce's Manchester works were sold from the London showrooms of Charles Stewart Rolls (1877-1910), and bore the name Rolls-Royce. This one was driven by English world speed record holder Sir Malcolm Campbell in the London to Brighton run in November 1933. The engine was water-cooled and was capable of propelling the vehicle to a speed of 30 mph when running at the normal 1000 rpm engine speed.
