The 1906 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost
This car was declared to be the best car in the entire world, and it was one of the very first to prove that a functional and well-made car could also be a symbol of luxury and a stellar work of art. It had a curb weight of just over 3,000lbs and a 134” wheelbase and successfully completed a 14,731-mile journey as well as several other public durability tests. These tests set a high standard for future Rolls-Royce automobiles and proved that a beautiful car could also be excellently built.
