Vintage cars will never get old. Modern cars may have dominated on sale during this century, but these old cars will always be adored at, especially by car enthusiasts. That’s why Rolls-Royce Limited, a famous car-manufacturing company, still lives today for their remarkable line of vintage vehicles, and just recently, aero-engines.
Founder Henry Royce started the company way back 1884. He first made the two-cylinder Royce 10 two decades after and it was then presented to Charles Rolls, a motoring and aviation pioneer, at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.

Rolls was really impressed with the car Royce made and gave an agreement to purchase all the cars that Royce will make. He then gave a line-up of four models – a 10 hp (7.5 kW), two-cylinder, a 15 hp (11 kW) three-cylinder, a 20 hp (15 kW) four-cylinder, and a 30 hp (22 kW) six-cylinder.
These models will be named as Rolls-Royce and will be sold only by Rolls. The company debuted their first market product in 1904 at the Paris Salon, the Rolls-Royce 10 hp. When the Rolls-Royce Limited started two years after their debut, the company have purchased 12.7 acres of land on the southern edge of Manchester and built the factory designed by Royce.
After the factory’s debut, Royce had started creating an upgraded six-cylinder model even more powerful than his previous Rolls-Royce 30 hp. Later on, this was the company’s first all-new model.
Rolls-Royce is also famous on their new line of aircrafts and aero engines. Being an aircraft enthusiast, Charles Rolls persuaded Royce to start designing an aero engine. They were then contacted by the Royal Aircraft Factory to design a 200 hp aero engine. This continued until Royce was able to build a larger 675 hp Condor.
