Henry Royce started his own company in 1884. Due to lack of quality of existing cars he decided to build a car according to his quality standards. This first Royce from 1904 was so perfect that Charles Rolls, who met Henry Royce in 1904 in Manchester, decided to take care of the sales activity, under the name Rolls-Royce. The characters from Royce and Rolls were totally opposite; Royce the technician always looking for the most perfect solution and Rolls, the wild guy in all aspects. Claude Johnson was the glue to keep the 2 temperaments working together. The first Rolls-Royce was the RR 10hp. Rolls-Royce Ltd. was founded in 1906 en moved to Derby in 1908. From the RR 40/50 HP Silver Ghost with a 6 cilinder engine, 6173 vehicles were produced up until 1925. A second factory was opened in Springfield in the US in 1921. 1701 Springfield Ghosts were build to keep up with the demand. In 1931 the factory in Springfield already closed down. In the same year Rolls-Royce took over Bentley. The Silver Ghost successor was the Phantom I, later the Phantom II and Phantom III. In 1922 Rolls-Royce presented a more economic and smaller model, the Twenty. From that moment onwards, Rolls-Royce continued the dual production policy, one expensive big car and a more economic smaller alternative.
