From supercars to motor cars, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has released the second segment to their collection of short films. The Home of Rolls-Royce, based in Goodwood, West Sussex, is the focal point for the second chapter
The film opens with the West Sussex landmark and introduces viewers to the two founders of the bespoke company: Charles Rolls and Sir Henry Royce. The video discloses the intricate practices of the designers and the meticulous nature of the work, ensuring that Rolls-Royce upholds continues to be a great icon of luxury excellence.
Take the best that exists and make it better. If it does not exist, design it.
The first of the House of Rolls-Royce short films premiered in December 2016, telling the story of the enigmatic Spirit of Ecstasy, the figure that graces the bonnet of all Rolls-Royce cars, encapsulating luxury excellence. Academy Award-winning Kate Winslet, embodying the Spirit of Ecstasy, transports us to the intricate world of bespoke Rolls-Royce where each motor car is meticulously crafted to perfection. Drawing on 113 years of design experience, Rolls-Royce has become the global centre of luxury with artisans use their expertise to continually raise its standards. For example, the leather in a Rolls-Royce takes 17 days to hand-craft which includes 9 bull hides.
Rolls-Royce brings together the finest materials alongside cutting-edge technologies, such as the all-time favourite bespoke feature – the starlight headliner made from 1340 individually hand-woven fibre-optics. Each headliner can be customised to individual taste such creating the constellation at the time of a patron’s birth or the outline of a company insignia. Over 20,000 wood combinations are available on request, with each set of veneers taking over a month to handcraft.
