Rolls Royce Diecast Models

Rolls-Royce was a British luxury car and later an aircraft engine manufacturing business established in 1904 by Charles Rolls and Henry Royce and quickly developed a reputation for superior engineering by manufacturing the "best car in the world". World War I brought them into the manufacturing of aircraft engines building an enduring reputation for developing and manufacturing of engines for defense and civilian aircraft.

By the late 1960s, Rolls-Royce became hopelessly crippled by its own mismanagement resulting in financial collapse. In 1971, the owners were obliged to liquidate their business. The useful portions were bought by a new government-owned company named Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited.  In 1973, the British government sold the Rolls-Royce car business and Rolls-Royce Motors was created to allow the nationalized parent Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited to concentrate on jet engine manufacturing. During this time the company produced luxury cars under both the Rolls-Royce and Bentley brands

Rolls-Royce Motors was then sold to Vickers in 1980. In 1998, the company was again sold to Volkswagen Group by outbidding BMW. The resulting Bentley Motors Limited is the company's direct successor; however BMW acquired the rights to the Rolls-Royce trademark for use on automobiles and launched Rolls-Royce Motor Cars shortly afterwards.
