About this Item

240 pages. Leatherbound. New book. TRANSPORTATION. "Strive for perfection in everything you do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, design it."ÑSir Henry Royce This philosophy has ensured that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has remained foremost in its field for more than one hundred years, with cars that continue to win both numerous industry accolades and the enduring admiration of owners and fans who appreciate them. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars: Strive for Perfection captures the unique history of the most famous automotive company in the world. Lavishly illustrated, the book celebrates the design and style of this world-renowned luxury brand by showing the most important Rolls-Royce models ever madeÑfrom the Silver Ghost through to the latest Phantom and Ghost built at the home of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Goodwood, England. Before it can be presented to its owner, every Rolls-Royce motor car is carefully and lovingly handcrafted. This book offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the meticulous design, engineering, and craftsmanship employed in the construction of every car that leaves Goodwood. Whether you are a dedicated collector of these iconic cars or an enthusiast who would like to learn more about the most coveted cars worldwide, this lavish book offers a look back at a century of inspired timeless car design. Contents: WORDS OF WELCOME, FOREWORD, INTRODUCTION, PHILOSOPHY, COMPANY HISTORY, ENGINEERING AND CRAFTSMANSHIP, COACHBUILDER, COACHWORK DRAFTS, DESIGN, IMAGES, TRADITION, MASTERPIECES, ROLLS-ROYCE MODELS. 180 pages, 200 color plates, 9 1/2" x 12". "This spectacular volume celebrates three anniversaries: 150 years since Royce's birth, 110 years since Rolls met Royce, and ten years since Rolls-Royce production began afresh under BMW ownership. . . . As an homage to 150, 110, and 10, it doesn't get any better. . . . The book is a sheer delight. . . . The photos are in another league, the cars as art, and words fail your reviewer." -- The Flying Lady "Riedel's photographs have such a you-are-there richness and sheen that the reader almost feels ready to settle in and drive the book away." -- The Wall Street Journal "Rolls-Royce: Strive for Perfectiongoes into detail about the history of the company, with a timeline highlighting milestones in the company's history and how it evolved from a carriage builder into an automobile manufacturer. A sizable portion of the work focuses on engineering and craftsmanship; many sketches and photographs help illustrate the striving for perfection that Rolls-Royce is known for. Valuable for automobile historians and Rolls-Royce fans." -- Choice (Key Words: Leatherbound Books, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Automobiles, Transportation, Andreas Braun, Art, Photography).
