Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

Henry Royce probably did not start out to create the "Best Car in the World" when he designed the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost. What he wanted was to replace his rough-running six-cylinder "Thirty" with something more reliable, something smoother and quieter.

He succeeded so completely that the new car, introduced at the Olympia Motor Show and later named Silver Ghost, became the longest-running single model next to the Model T Ford (and, much later, the VW Beetle and the British Mini) -- and certainly the most famous luxury car in history. The Silver Ghost remains to this day the most desirable model among antique (pre-1930) cars.

Classic Cars Image Gallery

Rolls-Royce, founded in Manchester in 1904, was the amalgam of socialite entrepreneur Charles S. Rolls, who'd been selling Panhards and wanted something better, and the aforementioned Mr. Royce, whose previous experience had been with electric cranes.

Early production involved a variety of cars in different sizes with two, three, four, and six cylinders, about as successful as bystanders expected from this unlikely duo. But those who thought the venture would fail did not reckon on Royce's acumen, nor his single-minded determination to build a better car than anybody else.

The Silver Ghost was renowned for its smooth, quiet running, achieved with a massive, seven-main-bearing crankshaft and stiff crankcase. Its cylinders were cast in two blocks of three, inclusive of heads, which eliminated head gaskets and the chances of their blowing. The specifications included full-pressure lubrication, an electrical system that really worked, and a precision carburetor made with the quality of a Swiss watch. Its reliability, at a time when "horseless carriages" were anything but reliable, was legendary.

This was proven when a Silver Ghost emerged from a 15,000-mile trial in 1907, observed by the Royal Automobile Club, with highest marks. Four years later, on the London-Edinburgh-London run, a Ghost ran the entire distance in top gear with a fuel consumption of 24.32 miles per Imperial gallon (19 mpg U.S.), an astonishing performance for the time in such a heavy car.

Although the seven-liter side-valve engine's compression ratio was only 3,2:1, it developed 48 brake horsepower at 1,500 rpm, and would deliver 50-mph cruising speeds, which was more than an enthusiastic driver could do on almost any public road of the day.

When a Ghost owner wanted to really let it out, he'd pay a visit to Brooklands, the huge banked oval in Surrey, built just after the first Ghosts. Brooklands' motto was "the right crowd and no crowding," which was certainly appropriate here: the Silver Ghost chassis alone cost £985, close to $5,000 at the time, five or 10 times what the average professional could expect to make in a year. Truly this was a car for the classes and not the masses.

Henry Royce's success came at a key time, when the cash-poor company desperately needed a winner. So well received was it that the firm moved to more spacious quarters in Derby in 1908, simultaneously deciding to produce only this model -- and so it did for the next 17 years.

1909-1926 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

The first mechanical change to the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost came in 1909, when an increase in stroke brought displacement to 7.4 liters and the original four-speed transmission was replaced by a three-speed unit. By 1911, when Rolls-Royce prepared a car for the London-Edinburgh run, compression was 3.5:1 and carburetion increases had brought horsepower to 58. The Ghost reverted to a four-speed transmission in 1913, when cantilever rear suspension was adopted.

That was the year when Rolls-Royce was able to claim an honest 80 mph for the light, open-bodied Ghosts built for the Austrian Alpine Trials, where they finished ahead of all other rivals. Incidentally, the beautiful London-Edinburgh tourer survives, and recently changed hands at a Florida auction for $1,3000,000 -- a bargain compared to two other, less distinguished examples which sold for $2,005,000 and $2,600,000.

Limited production continued during the Great War, when many new and some old Ghosts were fitted with armored bodywork for running battles against the Turks in the Middle East, under such commanders as Allenby and Lawrence of Arabia. Others were used as staff cars and ambulances. Inflation saw the chassis price rise to £2,100 ($10,165) after the war, although this now included a chain-driven self-starter and four-wheel brakes with a servo assist. Brake horsepower of the 1919 and later models rose to 70.

In 1920, Rolls-Royce of America, Incorporated, was founded at Springfield, Massachusetts, in a plant purchased from the American Wire Wheel Company. The object was to build cars for the American market while avoiding high import tariffs, and the subsidiary enjoyed good success until the Depression closed it down in 1931. Silver Ghosts were built at Springfield beginning in 1921.

Retaining their English right-hand drive, they offered the 7.4-liter engine rated at 80 bhp. In 1925, Springfield finally switched to left-hand drive, by which time the cars were developing 85 bhp at 2,300 rpm and could do 70-plus mph with the high-speed (3.25:1) rear axle ratio. Two huge wheelbases, of 144 and 150 1/2inches, were available, and bodies were supplied by the cream of American coach builders, chiefly Brewster. Of the 2,944 Springfield Rolls-Royces built over 11 years, 1,703 were Silver Ghosts.

Paul Woudenberg, in his Illustrated Rolls-Royce and Bentley Buyer's Guide (1984), writes that the American Rolls had "no glaring weaknesses and, given regular maintenance and lubrication, has nearly unlimited life. The American Ghost has been given much attention in the Flying Lady, publication of the Rolls-Royce Owners Club, especially in the years after 1952, and owners will find back issues of this magazine (still available) a valuable guide in maintenance and troubleshooting."

He adds that while the domestic version lacked the four-wheel brakes of the later British cars, it did feature valve covers, an important improvement over the exposed valves of the English models. The domestics can be recognized at a glance by their drum headlamps, tubular bumpers, and American componentry such as electrics, as well as left-hand drive after 1925.

Finally, since Brewster built the vast majority of American bodies (and was itself bought by Rolls-Royce of America in 1923), the Springfield cars carry a far more uniform line of bodywork.

The Silver Ghost was superseded in Britain by the Phantom I in 1925, after a long and distinguished career. UK production since 1906 amounted to 6,173 chassis, making 7,876 altogether.

Rolls-Royce 40/50 Silver Ghost

The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost refers both to a car model and to one specific car from that series.

Originally named the "40/50 h.p." the chassis was first made at Royce's Manchester works, with production moving to Derby in July 1908, and also, between 1921 and 1926, in Springfield, Massachusetts. Chassis no. 60551, registered AX 201 , was the car that was originally given the name "Silver Ghost." Other 40/50 hp cars were also given names, but the Silver Ghost title was taken up by the press, and soon all 40/50s were called by the name, a fact not officially recognised by Rolls-Royce until 1925, when the Phantom range was launched.The Original Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost one of the first of the 40/50 h.p.series designed and built by Henry Royce in 1906. The first managing director of the company, Claude Johnson, had this special aluminium painted touring body built for it and its external metalwork silver-plated and gave it the name " Silver Ghost." The car had a six-cylinder engine composed of two blocks of three cylinders with bore and stroke being 4 11/2 inches. The compression ratio was 3.2 to 1. Like future Rolls-Royce cars the degree of silence was achieved by having a special expansion chamber for each cylinder leading into the main silencer. The brakes were drum type on the rear wheels, and the car had four forward speeds. Prop. shaft drive, overhead inlet and side exhaust valves completed the picture. The marque stayed in production for many years.Its quiet, smooth-running became very welcome to motorists after the bone-jarring caused by previous cars. Both open and closed bodies of various designs were fitted, to suit the requirements of the customer. 'The Silver Ghost' became the standard by which to judge other cars and it is still, to this day.

The Silver Ghost was the origin of Rolls-Royce's claim of making the "Best car in the world" – a phrase coined not by themselves, but by the prestigious publication Autocar in 1907.

The chassis and engine were also used as the basis of a range of Rolls-Royce Armoured Cars.

In 1906, Rolls-Royce produced four chassis to be shown at the Olympia car show, two existing models, a four-cylinder 20 hp and a six-cylinder 30 hp, and two examples of a new car designated the 40/50 hp. The 40/50 hp was so new that the show cars were not fully finished, and examples were not provided to the press for testing until March 1907.

The car at first had a new side-valve, six-cylinder, 7036 cc engine (7428 cc from 1910) with the cylinders cast in two units of three cylinders each as opposed to the triple two-cylinder units on the earlier six. A three-speed transmission was fitted at first with four-speed units used from 1913. The seven-bearing crankshaft had full pressure lubrication, and the centre main bearing was made especially large to remove vibration, essentially splitting the engine into two three-cylinder units. Two spark plugs were fitted to each cylinder with, from 1921, a choice of magneto or coil ignition. The earliest cars had used a trembler coil to produce the spark with a magneto as an optional extra which soon became standard - the instruction was to start the engine on the trembler/battery and then switch to magneto. Continuous development allowed power output to be increased from 48 bhp (36 kW) at 1,250 rpm to 80 bhp (60 kW) at 2,250 rpm. Electric lighting became an option in 1914 and was standardised in 1919. Electric starting was fitted from 1919 along with electric lights to replace the older ones that used acetylene or oil.

Development of the Silver Ghost was suspended during World War I, although the chassis and engine were supplied for use in Rolls-Royce Armoured Cars.

The chassis had rigid front and rear axles and leaf springs all round. Early cars only had brakes on the rear wheels operated by a hand lever, with a pedal-operated transmission brake acting on the propeller shaft. The footbrake system moved to drums on the rear axle in 1913. Four-wheel servo-assisted brakes became optional in 1923.

Despite these improvements the performance of the Silver Ghost's competitors had improved to the extent that its previous superiority had been eroded by the early 1920s. Sales declined from 742 in 1913 to 430 in 1922. The company decided to launch its replacement which was introduced in 1925 as the New Phantom. After this, older 40/50 models were called Silver Ghosts to avoid confusion.

A total of 7874 Silver Ghost cars were produced from 1907 to 1926, including 1701 from the American Springfield factory. Many of them still run today. A fine example is on display at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu.

The Alpine Eagles

A 40/50 was privately entered in the prestigious 1912 Austrian Alpine Trial by James Radley, but its 3-speed gearbox proved inadequate for the ascent of the Katschberg Pass. A factory team of four cars were prepared for the 1913 event with four-speed gearboxes, and engine power increased from 60 to 75 bhp (56 kW) by an increase in compression ratio and larger carburettor. The team gained six awards including the Archduke Leopold Cup. Replicas of the victorious cars were put into production and sold officially as Continental models, but they were called Alpine Eagles by chief test driver (and later Rolls-Royce Managing Director) Ernest Hives, and this is the name that they have kept.

The Silver Ghost

In 1907. Claude Johnson, Commercial and Managing Director of Rolls-Royce, ordered a car to be used as a demonstrator by the company. With chassis no. 60551 and registered AX 201, it was the 12th 40/50 hp to be made, and was painted in aluminium paint with silver-plated fittings. The car was named the "Silver Ghost" to emphasise its ghost-like quietness, and a plaque bearing this name adorned the bulkhead. An open-top Roi-des-Belges body by coachbuilder Barker was fitted, and the car readied for the Scottish reliability trials of 1907 and, immediately afterwards, another 15,000-mile (24,000 km) test which included driving between London and Glasgow 27 times.

The aim was to raise public awareness of the new company and to show the reliability and quietness of their new car. This was a risky idea: cars of this time were notoriously unreliable, and roads of the day could be horrendous. Nevertheless, the car set off on trials, and with press aboard, broke record upon record. Even after 7,000 miles (11,000 km), the cost to service the car was a negligible £2 2s 7d (£2.13). The reputation of the 40/50, and Rolls-Royce, was established.

AX201 was sold in 1908 to a private customer who used it for his annual vacation to Italy and recovered by the company in 1948. Since then, it has been used as a publicity car and travelled worldwide. In 1989, the car was restored by SC Gordon Coachbuilders Luton, and P&A Wood, London, UK. It is now owned by Bentley Motors.

In 1984, the car was photographed in great detail whilst in storage in Luton by precision model makers Franklin Mint. This die-cast model went on to become one of their best-selling products.

The Silver Ghost is considered the most valuable car in the world; in 2005 its insured value was placed at US$35 million. Today it is valued at US$200 million

A Detailed Look Back At The Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

This quiet running beauty was the dream car of its day and remains a vintage dream car today.

The well known automotive classic Rolls Royce Silver Ghost has made a name for itself and the Rolls Royce company since its launch in 1906 at the Olympia Motor Show under its original name “40/50”. The Roll Royce Silver Ghost passed various durability tests  before its regular production began, which set the standard for all future Rolls Royces. The silver Ghost proved the companies claim to make “The Best Car In The World,” which is why the Rolls Royce is one of the most recognized trademarks in history.

Only two years after the partnership between Henery Royce (The Mechanic) and Charles Stewart Rolls (The Promotor), this masterpiece was created and brought lifelong recognition to their names. This article will take a detailed look back at the Silver Ghost, the car that made Rolls Royce who they are today.

The Early Years

Looking back at the Classic Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

When designing the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, Henry Royce had an objective to create a quiet, reliable, smooth-running automobile, and he was none other than successful. Though this car’s production was initially at Royce’s Manchester works in 1906, production locations changed through the years. The Derby Factory was its production home in 1908 and Springfield, MA USA, between 1921 and 1926.

This car’s original name, “40/50,” took the backseat when the quietness of this car reminded people of something “ghost-like.” It wasn’t until shortly after the press took this ghost description and ran with it. This car’s beautiful and unique appearance was surrounded with silver plated fittings and painted in aluminum paint, ultimately completing its name and description ⸺ The Silver Ghost. The popular name was eventually attached to the entire series, though the original Silver Ghost will always be Chassis no. 60551.

Many people during the early 1900s enjoyed hiring chauffeurs to handle and drive their automobiles. However, the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost's design had a certain appeal that made many owners want to get behind the wheel themselves and take it for a spin.

The Silver Ghost broke the world’s record for distance and reliability, operating without any involuntary stops for 14,371 miles. The bodywork on this four-door automobile provided its owners with a durable yet luxurious car ; this took driving to a whole new level. Many vehicle engines were noisy due to the long crankshaft design most manufacturers implemented during this time.

Rolls Royce engines fixed this problem with their full pressure oiling system and large bearings enclosed in an aluminum alloy crankcase, alleviating the commonly heard noise when driving. This Rolls Royces is equipped with a side-valve six-cylinder engine and 4-speed gearbox , reaching a maximum of 60 MPH.

It’s 48 brake horsepower(bhp) at 1,500 RPM provided the driver with more bhp than any other automobile of the time. In addition to its smooth, vibration-free ride, the quality of mechanics made this car the first of its kind to withstand decades of operation.

Final Look At The Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

Rolls Royce has made its mark in history for what it takes to make a uniquely innovative and exceptional automobile. The company continues to trailblaze into the future with its unparalleled luxury and fine craftsmanship .

The 1906 Silver Ghost design was ahead of its time, and many people looked at this car as “the best car in the world.” Between the years 1906 to 1926, there were 7874 Silver Ghost cars produced.

The Rolls-Royce That Built a Reputation

By Robert C. Yeager

  • Aug. 17, 2012

ON its way to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Élégance as a participant in the 1,500-mile Motoring Classic tour, the 1912 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost owned by Charles Howard of Gloucestershire, England, was sidelined by an engine failure. That will not affect the Silver Ghost’s place in history, however. Some experts consider the Ghost the greatest Rolls of all.

T. E. Lawrence wrote, “A Rolls in the desert was above rubies,” and regarded his nine Silver Ghosts as indispensable to military success.

The British Army officer, known as Lawrence of Arabia, told the broadcaster Lowell Thomas after World War I that his fondest wish was for “my own Rolls-Royce car with enough tires and petrol to last all my life.”

First offered in 1906, the Silver Ghost proved virtually indestructible and, as its wealthy patrons demanded, infinitely adaptable. Partly because the chassis were so long-lived, the same car was often rebodied several times.

1906 silver ghost rolls royce

“Just as each season you needed a Savile Row tailor for a new suit,” said Peter Hageman, a Silver Ghost owner, Pebble Beach judge and frequent participant in the motoring classic tour, “you needed a coachbuilder for a new body.”

Mr. Howard, a longtime collector, maintains that a car should be measured by its handling and its “poke.” The Ghost offered both. It could motor smoothly at 55 miles an hour with its engine turning a mere 1,500 r.p.m.

Often, said Laurence Anderson, a mechanic in Berkeley, Calif., who specializes in vintage Rolls-Royces and Bentleys, Silver Ghosts were equipped with steel-studded tires to better deal with London cobblestones made slick by rain, mud and horse manure. The cars’ wooden running boards were strong enough to be removed and driven over if needed to cross a stream, he said.

Fitted with Vickers machine guns and armor plate during World War I, the cars served in combat and as ambulances. Armored Ghosts were still in service at the time of the North Africa campaigns of World War II. As for Mr. Howard’s car, by 1943, according to a dashboard plaque, it had logged 750,000 miles.

When production ended in 1926, nearly 8,000 Ghosts had been built.

1906 Rolls-Royce 40/50 Silver Ghost: The birth of a legend

One of the most remarkable vehicles of the British manufacturer – Rolls-Royce 40/50 Silver Ghost, was the epitome of luxury and style, forever staying in the history of the automotive industry.

The history of the automotive industry has long exceeded 100 years. During this rather significant period for science and technology, the industry went through several eras, and approaches to vehicle construction have repeatedly changed and taken on new forms. But in automobile history, as in any other branch of human activity, there were milestones forever stuck in the memory of people. Such was the legendary 40/50 hp or the inimitable Silver Ghost. 

It all started with the first Rolls-Royce 10 hp model, the prototype of which appeared in 1903 when engineer Henry Royce from Manchester bought the French car Decauville 1903. He was so dissatisfied with its design and the technical specifications that built and sold the first car of his design to Charles Stewart Rolls. The wealthy gentleman liked it so much that by the end of 1904 a cooperation agreement was signed. The joined company was named Rolls-Royce producing luxurious vehicles for more than a century. Since then, the brand always strived to produce only “the best cars in the world” and succeeded!

The origins

1906 silver ghost rolls royce

Source: Autoreview

The twelfth chassis (#60551) of the six-cylinder 40/50 hp model debuted in 1906 and was built for the company’s Managing Director Claude Johnson. It was he who persuaded the company’s board to focus on a single high-end model, which soon earned the emotional title of “the best car in the world.” Johnson ordered the body from the London studio Barker & Co.:; the automobile was painted silver, and the fittings were covered with a layer of natural silver. Therefore, and also thanks to the silent operation of the new motor, the owner gave the vehicle, like a yacht, its name – “Silver Ghost”, which was stated on the plate on the body. Shortly after delivering the automobile, Claude Johnson entered it in the Scottish Reliability Trial and won the Dewar Cup. The car set the official record by driving 14 932 miles (24 030.73 km) without a single forced stop due to a malfunction. The result was widely publicized, and the semi-official nickname Silver Ghost stuck to the 40/50 HP model – although only Claude Johnson’s vehicle with the license plate AX201 carried such a name.

Interestingly, the British brand’s first models did not become a breakthrough in the field of auto construction. But the real success was achieved in 1906 when the 40/50 hp model was released. The first indicator 40 hp meant the “tax power” of the engine, calculated from the diameter of the cylinders and their number, and the second characterized the real power of the power unit. By the way, the new engine had six cylinders and a working volume of more than 7 liters, which, in conjunction with a power of 50 hp was a very impressive result, considering that this engineering solution was created more than 100 years ago. The technical platform also had a new crankshaft mounting system on seven bearings. This solution allowed to evenly distribute the weight of the engine and significantly reduce the noise emitted by it. The ignition problem was solved by installing two glow plugs on each of the six cylinders. The new model was introduced at the London Motor Show when the company’s engineers assembled a one-of-a-kind copy on chassis 60544. The legendary vehicle with a unique body received its epoch-making name – “Silver Ghost”. The vehicle, in addition to the attention-grabbing silver body, received surprisingly strong details. The test run of the car was over 24 000 kilometers, while the only malfunction was a broken fuel cock. However, thanks to the quality and high strength, Rolls-Royce automobiles have repeatedly received extremely positive reviews and recognition from the automotive community. According to unofficial statistics, 6 out of 10 Rolls-Royces ever produced are still on the move, and company representatives like to repeat that a Rolls-Royce cannot break, it simply stops functioning.

The Silver Ghost became legendary for its outstanding ride, reliability, and build quality. The first English armored vehicle, which participated in the First World War, was built on its chassis, and a significant part of the combat aircraft of that time was equipped with Rolls-Royce aircraft engines, the production of which was mastered in 1914.

Rolls royce silver ghost sells for $7.1 million, making it the most expensive rolls royce sold at auction (photos).

Associate Editor, HuffPost Small Business

1906 silver ghost rolls royce

Car enthusiasts at the Bonhams Goodwood Festival of Speed witnessed a record-breaking auction when a classic Rolls Royce sold for 5.8 million euros ($7.1 million) to an anonymous bidder on June 29, making it the most expensive Rolls Royce ever sold at an auction.

First manufactured in 1906, the 40/50hp Silver Ghost model is known as " The Corgi ," named after a line of toys modelled after the car, according to the Daily Mail . The opulent Double Pullman limousine was first purchased in 1912 by John M. Stephens for about 1,200 euros according to Bonhams. While the luxury car was intended for personal use, many of the models were converted into ambulances during World War One, the Telegraph reported.

The car, which is capable of running at 60 miles per hour gets 15 miles to the gallon. Its headlights, carriage lights, rear lights and inflatable tires are still intact.

The car was sold following the death of its American owner John O'Quinn. A Bonhams representative described the auction as "pure theater" as two revelers bid in over 125,000 euro increments before the hammer dropped at 5.8 million euros, well above the 2.5 million euro expected sale price, according to the Telegraph .

This won't be the last big-ticket item up for bid at Bonhams. The auction house will auction off a classic Mercedes Benz in September, which is expected to fetch over $2 million.

Jay Cutler Owns One of the Most Impressive Rolls-Royce Cars in Bodybuilding History

Jay Cutler is clearly one of the many legends in the history of modern bodybuilding. In his golden age, when he staged a legendary battle against Ronnie Coleman , it became clear that, besides his god-like physique, Cutler's success was mainly attributable to a strong mindset and discipline.

Harvesting millions of dollars throughout his career, the American bodybuilder decided to give himself an expensive treat brought straight from England. Could you imagine how much this Rolls-Royce cost? Find out after seeing its features.

So, which car does American bodybuilder Jay Cutler own?

It is said that "A picture is worth a thousand words"... And boy, is it true! This is the car for which Jay Cutler paid a fortune. We are talking about the Rolls-Royce Ghost, a car inspired by the old "Silver Ghost" model built in 1906.

If you are planning on buying it, you can choose between the standard size for your daily rides or go big with the extended version (for when you need space to transport so much muscle).

Wondering about what's under the hood? A 6.75-liter V12 monster roaring with 563 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque!

All of this powered by an 8-speed automatic transmission coupled with an all-wheel drive system , both of which are there to make sure every drive becomes an unforgettable experience.

Pay attention to its price: this is what Jay Cutler's Rolls-Royce costs

According to the Car and Driver news portal, the Rolls-Royce Ghost starts at a price of 354,750 dollars in the United States. But this is quite relative , since the English company allows us to add a wide range of modifications from the beginning, which makes its price a hard thing to guess.
