Rolls-Royce Motor Cars celebrated a record Goodwood Revival on the beautiful Sussex South Downs
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars celebrated a record Goodwood Revival over the weekend, with all three days of the popular event selling out for the first time ahead of Revival Friday.
The local manufacturer of super luxury motor cars hosted customers, prospects and VIPs and also entertained the thousands of visitors to the world’s most popular historic motor race meeting in true Rolls-Royce style.
An authentic recreation of a 1960s dealership – the Rolls-Royce showroom at the March Motor Works – attracted great interest, with a spectacular 1962 Silver Cloud II Drophead Coupé in lustrous black prominently displayed ‘for sale’. Attention to detail included original vintage signage, a showroom manager in appropriate business attire and an imposing safe in one corner.
With a theatrical twist, only possible at the Goodwood Revival, the showroom hosted glamorous movie star couples throughout the weekend. With impromptu photo calls and the ever-present paparazzi, a cordon of the Goodwood Runners (period police force) were on hand to hold back the adoring fans.
Rolls-Royce was also represented on the Motor Circuit throughout the event, with a beautiful Silver Cloud I Drophead Coupé in light blue, with bodywork by H.J. Mulliner & Co. Ltd., forming part of the Course Director’s entourage. Over 100 very special guests were conveyed in period luxury, with the silence of the ‘magic carpet ride’ only marginally disturbed by the ticking of the clock.
