chapter 3

a vision beyond time

IMAGINING AN ICON

To travel in a Rolls-Royce motor car is to escape from time. To imagine a Rolls-Royce is to push the boundaries of possibility, unconstrained by time and space. Our design philosophy is built on enduring principles that free us to innovate and create our greatest visions. On these foundations, icons are born.

An image of space and stars.

Elegantly Balanced

The 2:1 ratio of wheel to body height is inscribed into our DNA, defining the figure of Rolls-Royce motor cars since the first Silver Ghost. These elegantly balanced proportions create our signature profile, endowing a sense of scale and beauty on every model.

Fluid Lines

A triptych of lines delicately defines the character of every Rolls-Royce. The waft line: the classic character side line that emphasises the motor car’s dynamism. The waistline, imparting a sense of purpose. And the silhouette: striking, powerful and iconic. These three lines harmonise to map a form that is always unquestionably Rolls-Royce.

Signature Grille

The Rolls-Royce grille is a design icon in itself. It comprises three elements: the Rolls-Royce badge, always lettered in black; the commanding Pantheon grille, named after its resemblance to an ancient Roman portico; and the silver Spirit of Ecstasy leading the way. Linking past to present, it is an unchanging symbol of status and presence that unmistakably marks our arrival.

Our Vision: Onwards

To own the moment yet exist beyond it: this is what makes an icon. As new technologies and innovations unfold, we push towards the next and the next: elevating the experience of travel, harnessing new energy sources, embracing the possibilities of artificial intelligence. Towards the horizon and beyond, our values are unwavering while our vision remains clear: onwards.

Sponsorships

How can I request sponsorship from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars?

We receive many requests for sponsorship, funding and donations, and whilst we are a keen supporter of local charities sadly we cannot support every worthy cause which is brought to our attention. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars selects a house charity each year to be our primary charitable focus, for 2019 the charity we have chosen is Home-Start Arun.

Home-Start Arun promotes the welfare of families in the Arun, Worthing and Adur District Council areas, to alleviate stress and conflict at home and prevent family crisis and breakdown.
