This month Rolls-Royce is celebrating 10 years of production at their new factory in Goodwood, England, known as the Home of Rolls-Royce.
One of the things that make the Goodwood plant special is the Bespoke division. 'Bespoke' is an English clothing-industry term for an item of unusually high quality made to order for a valued client, and this is where the company's top design talents work with their most skilled craftsmen and women to fulfil customer requests for unusual or non-standard features and finishes on their cars.
Now, for the first time, the Bespoke team have been invited to commemorate 10 years at Goodwood by creating a few really special cars from scratch, to be known as the Home of Rolls-Royce Collection.
We're not talking limited-edition here; each car will be truly unique, showcasing the Bespoke division's world-class leather, paint and wood finishes, with exquisite marquetry, embroidery and hand-painted coachlines that will carry specially designed Bespoke motifs.
Rolls-Royce boss Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: "In 10 years, the Home of Rolls-Royce has established a reputation as the benchmark for excellence in automotive craftsmanship excellence. I look forward to introducing customers to these unique Bespoke masterpieces over the next year."
