All Rolls-Royces are special. Some, to paraphrase Orwell, are more special than others. Like this latest Centenary edition Phantom.
Created to mark 100 years of the company's mascot – the Spirit of Ecstasy – the Centenary Collection is distinguished by a number of special touches, including unique paint colors, commemorative plaques, special instruments and clock set into the dashboard and a replica statuette for owners to place on their desks or mantle. To cap it all, the glovebox lid is inscribed with the following:
"A graceful little goddess, the Spirit of Ecstasy, who has selected road travel as her supreme delight and alighted on the prow of a Rolls-Royce motor car to revel in the freshness of the air and the musical sound of her fluttering draperies." - Charles Sykes, 1911
