The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost was introduced in 1907 when horses were still the preferred mode of travel and automobiles were considered loud, smelly and unreliable.
The hand-built Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts were reliable and whisper quiet. In fact, they were arguably the quietest, most reliable and most technically advanced cars in the world at the time. The cars were so reliable in fact, that one Silver Ghost was run for 15,000 miles without stopping.
The Silver Ghost was the choice of the rich and famous across the globe. Kings, queens, maharajas, tsars and emperors owned them. The demand for the Silver Ghost was so high, in fact, that in 1921 a plant was built in the United States. That factory produced “Springfield” Rolls Royce models until 1925.
