Rolls-Royce enters into the spirit of the Olympics

If you witnessed any of the London 2012 Olympics; from the opening ceremony to last night’s show-stopping ceremony, you will have noticed BMW’s presence, from the humble MINI right up to these specially prepared Phantom Series II Drophead Coupes.

The only real change, carried out by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Design Team, is a change of badging: a first for the company in its 108-year history. The trio, which starred in last night’s ‘A Symphony of British Music’ spectacle, feature Union Flag detailing within the Spirit of Ecstasy’s gown on the grille and side badges, a laurel wreath and torch emblem on the steering wheel, special London 2012 ‘One of Three’ sill plates and wheel centre caps with the Games’ ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’ motto. The cars are purely for exhibition purposes and not for sale, so put your wallet away.

“I am delighted that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars was invited to take part in celebrating the success of the Games and it is appropriate that we should recognise this occasion with a fitting tribute,” said Rolls-Royce chief, Torsten Müller-Ötvös.
