Rolls-Royce Has Been Posting On Twitter About The Phantom Drophead Coupé

From April 10, for the last five days, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars on Twitter have been posting about the Phantom Drophead Coupé Waterspeed collection along with pictures of the vehicle.

Starting with “A lesson from the past, reshaped for the future”, the posts summarized tell us that, following the positive public reaction to the Rolls-Royce 100EX, the marque greenlit for a production version that would be eventually be named Phantom Drophead Coupé. The decking of classic sailing yachts was the inspiration for the rear decking of Phantom Drophead Coupé.

Yesterday’s post was ”Launched in 2014, the Phantom Drophead Coupé Waterspeed Collection honoured Sir Malcolm Campbell’s 1937 water speed record”.

Sir Malcolm Campbell was a British racing motorist and motoring journalist. He gained the world speed record on land and on water at various times, using vehicles called Blue Bird, including a 1921 Grand Prix Sunbeam.

He was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 1990 and into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in 1994. His son, Donald Campbell, carried on the family tradition by holding both land speed and water speed records.

Rolls-Royce was a British luxury car and later an aero-engine manufacturing business established in 1904 in Manchester by the partnership of Charles Rolls and Henry Royce. Building on Royce’s good reputation established with his cranes, they quickly developed a reputation for superior engineering by manufacturing the “best cars in the world”. The business was incorporated as Rolls-Royce Limited in 1906 and a new factory in Derby was opened in 1908.

Rolls-Royce is still the most premium luxury automobile brand in the world.
