Rolls-Royce Motor Cars celebrated a successful Goodwood Revival with a significant presence throughout the weekend.
This year, the renamed ‘Gordon Galleries’ recaptured the sights, sounds, and atmosphere of the marque’s glamorous premises in London’s West End during the 1950s with a stunning 1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Extended Wheelbase taking center place. Finished in black over red with a body by Freestone & Webb, the car was first presented at the 1956 British International Motor Show at Earl’s Court, London.
The automaker was also represented on the famous motor circuit itself throughout the event by a handsome 1966 Rolls-Royce Phantom V Touring Limousine (PV 23 design), with a body by coachbuilder James Young. Finished in ivory over black and one of very few made with Hooper rear windows, this splendid touring limousine formed part of the Course Director’s entourage giving invited guests an opportunity to experience the marque’s legendary ‘magic carpet ride’ for themselves, in period luxury, if only marginally disturbed by the ticking of the original mechanical clock!
An exclusive fleet of contemporary Rolls-Royce motor cars was evident in the Goodwood area during the Revival weekend with invited VIP guests being conveyed in luxury from the Company’s manufacturing plant and head office on the South-Eastern corner of the Goodwood Estate.
