The Carabinieri escort 12 Rolls Royce cars through Lake Como
12 Rolls-Royce motor cars wafted through the winding roads on Lake Como this week – thanks to some assistance from an Italian motorcycle police escort. The Carabinieri were on hand to make sure there was a smooth path for the procession, skillfully escorting the £4m line-up or Rolls Royce cars through winding streets and small villages.
Framed against the stunning and scenic background of Lake Como, the Rolls Royce cars were driven by customers and a selection of VIP guests. The route started at Villa d’Este in Cernobbio, ending in Gravedona where the customers and guests were shuttled across the lake on three J-Craft Torpedo motor cruisers, for lunch in Bellagio.
“This was a truly amazing experience in one of Europe’s most beautiful locations”commented Torsten Muller-Otvos, CEO Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “We know the Italians appreciate the finest things in life – and we have the Carabinieri to thank for making sure our guests arrived for lunch with broad smiles on their faces.”
A selection of Rolls-Royce Phantom, Phantom Drophead Coupé, Phantom Coupé and Ghost models took part in the procession. The experience came as a fitting end to Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza celebrations, one of the world’s most exclusive motoring events which was held over the weekend of 22 and 23 May.
