Since its inception model Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost famous for her quietness and reliability. These qualities and created the image of the company for many years ahead .

Among the famous Nostradamus prophecies mean and such ” from the shores of Albion will be marvelous invention , silent crew , wearing coat Rolle de Rua “. Three and a half centuries , and the prediction came true magician . From the shores of Albion ( speaking in our opinion, England ) was the car brand Rolls-Royce. And most importantly , he differed strikingly quiet engine …
It is now difficult to imagine how rattled cars of the last century with their unbalanced , unreliable engines and primitive silencers. It is not surprising that almost silent on the standards of the Rolls-Royce car model ” 40/50 hp ” seemed came from another world. Played its role and silver box from the famous studio Barker, which was equipped with exhibition copy . For all this, the car has received the nickname Silver Ghost – « Silver Ghost .”

Man who went for a walk in Europe , and around the world , this specter was a British engineer Henry Royce (Henry Royce, 1863-1933). He came from a poor family and in ten years he started his career by selling newspapers. Gradually, he was able to break out in people . Royce has established himself as a talented engineer and early XX century already owned companies manufacturing various electrical equipment.
In 1903, Royce became the owner of the French car Decauville. From an engineering standpoint Royce car horrified : she could hardly factory, constantly overheated and strongly vibrated . Royce decided that he was able to construct a better crew . The first of its car design was ready in the spring of 1904 .

This car – the only Rolls-Royce, originally bore the name Silver Ghost. So he was called for striking color and , at the time , quiet .

However, in order to establish a solid production, required investment. Royce found an investor in the face of Charles Rolls (Charles Rolls, 1877-1910). He was a man completely different social background – comes from an aristocratic family and a millionaire . He showed keen interest in technical innovations , and while studying at Cambridge was the first owner of the car in the city, and then became famous as a racing driver and . Rolls Royce agreed to finance the venture . Partners , the then custom, named the company its name. Thus was born the brand Rolls-Royce.
The first model , which was released just ninety two pieces, little success the company did not bring , and truly epochal was precisely the model of ” 40/50 hp “, which appeared in late 1906. The first digit in its name means the so-called tax power , which was calculated based solely on the diameter of the cylinders and their amounts , and the second – the real power .
Six-cylinder engine of this model had a working volume of more than seven liters – by today’s standards a bit much for 50 strength , but in the beginning of the XX century this power for a car was considered a very, very solid . Older specimens with lightweight body could reach a speed of 135 km / h Crankshaft was mounted on seven bearings , which greatly contributed to the balance and low noise motor. One of the main problems of automobile engines of the time was unreliable ignition. Royce has solved this problem by putting on each cylinder by two spark plugs .
Thanks to an ingenious design to be so balanced motor and quiet that journalists compared his work with the sewing machine chatter . For dealership , held in early 1907 in the London exhibition hall “Olympia” , was made a special exhibition copy chassis number 60544 . Here it was he who got the name Silver Ghost – « Silver Ghost .” I must say that was the name officially only this one car. All other car model ” 40/50 hp ” became known as the “Silver Ghost ” only in hindsight .

Like real ghosts , ” Silver Ghost ” turned almost unkillable . Test run 24 thousand km with a single car passed malfunction : broken fuel tap . Such strength is characteristic of brand cars Rolls-Royce. It is believed that each of the 10 ever built Rolls-Royce 6 still remain on the go! «Rolls-Royce never breaks – say company representatives . – He ceases to function . ” And when one day a lady in conversation with Henry Royce said, ” Sir Henry , and what happens if you do a factory bad car ? ” – He replied: “Do not worry , madam , the gatekeeper will not release it to the plant .” Much handcrafted . For example, it was made so famous brand radiator “Rolls “, and to the eye – do not use any measuring tools. In the manufacture of the radiator left one man- day and another five o’clock was spent on his finish.
Since 1911, on the radiator “Silver Ghosts ” set figure flying lady who is officially called the “Spirit of Ecstasy” . It was created by sculptor Charles Sykes (Charles Sykes) specifically for the car Lord Montagu (Lord Montagu), editor of The Car. Posed the same sculptor Eleanor Thornton (Eleanor Thornton) – Secretary and beloved Lord , whom he could not marry because of the difference in their social status . Such embellishment cars came into vogue , and the firm ordered Sykes similar statuette , only more stylized . For many years, Sykes personally sparkled all the figures that adorned the hoods “Rolls- Royce “, and each of them was his signature .
Brand reputation was so high that the plant for the production of “Rolls- Royce ” built even in the U.S. , in Springfield (Springfield) – despite the fact that Americans in those years were very proud of their cars and on European models were looked down upon . This plant operated from 1921 to 1931 .

Prized Rolls-Royce and the main Russian people . Cars of this brand appeared in the garage of Nicholas II. And though ” Silver Ghost ” was not a ghost of communism , and , perhaps, the most unbridled capitalism , the car caught the fancy and the Kremlin leaders . Two Rolls-Royce is in possession of Lenin , one of them instead of the rear wheels was equipped with caterpillar engine Kegressa system for driving on snowy winter roads . Another car after the death of the revolutionary leader somehow ended up in Kerch, at the disposal of the local union of fishermen. Car miraculously survived , was restored in 1959 , after which it was exposed in the Central Lenin Museum . Now she is in the Moscow office of Rolls-Royce in the territory of the Historical Museum .

Total for 1906-1925 years was built 6173 model instance ” 40/50 “. Thus, the machine was as durable as the famous Ford T. The volume of production of these two models completely comparable, but both of them , though there were at opposite poles of the automotive world , have become symbols of the era. Another important factor is that the ” Silver Ghost ” helped found “Rolls- Royce ” his face and tremendously strengthened the reputation of the firm.

Legacy “Silver Ghost ” lies in the fact that after the title of most models Rolls-Royce comes something ” silver »: Silver Spirit (« Silver Spirit »), Silver Shadow (« Silver Shadow »), Silver Seraph (« Silver seraph »), Silver Spur (« Silver Spur »), Silver Cloud (« Silver cloud ” ) – in a pinch, just Phantom. This is the model was the next after the “Silver Ghost .” And the very , very first ” Silver Ghost ” on chassis 60544 , with registration number AX- 201, is still alive . Veteran noted centenary.

While the rest of the world rolls his eyes at the just introduced Ferrari 458 Speciale, we must admit we are not particularly surprised. In the end , the words “special” and “different ” seems were born simultaneously with wheelbarrows of Maranello. In addition, in the archives of the legendary brand there , ” speshely ” in the square, and even in the cube ! “Motor” recalls the most rare , unusual , exclusive , but always stunning Ferrari.

– Ferrari 166 MM/53 Abarth Smontabile Spider –

For Maranello 166 -I model with a 2- liter V12 with 140 horsepower – a start in life . It is this sports car overnight allowed the young company to catch up to the prestige and status of the leading lights of the Alfa-Romeo, Maserati, Cisitalia. ” Treydmarkovskie ” Body Ferrari 166 have developed the most respectable at the time studio Touring and Vignale. But the real sensation , if not shock, produced a version of Karl Abarth .
It was so. One of the wealthiest customers are not satisfied the ” stock ” body and he appealed for help to the rider and tuner Carlo Abarth . The Italian Austrian-born body made ​​of rare grace, but even more rare lightness. Elegant aluminum panels were attached to a supportive framework. And the elements of the body is easily removed and replaced in the event of an accident. The word Smontabile (« interchangeable “) in its name testifies to this .
As a result, the 166th in the Abarth version weighed nearly 300 pounds less than the standard model! And the first serious start in the race was won . Special version , easily recognizable by its Cyclopean located exactly in the center spotlight , was the first in the class at the finish ” – Targa Florio ” in 1953 .

– Ferrari 410 Superamerica Ghia –

In the middle of the last century cars, especially expensive and prestigious , created not as now . At the Paris Motor Show in 1955 ( on the same where all groaned , gasped the first time shown on the Citroen DS) company Ferrari modestly presented naked ( without a body , that is) 410 Superamerica chassis with a 5- liter 12 -cylinder engine , gave out 340 horses. And only then the best Italian ” karrotserii ” began to celebrate the engineering masterpiece masterpieces body .
The best , by all accounts , was the work of a young Sergio Pininfarina , and herself, to put it mildly , a controversial , and even cause seizures idiosyncrasy in the purist, was an option from the studio Ghia. Today the ” Prancing stallion ” in the style of ” baroque Detroit ” looks sensational . Not that half a century ago …

– Ferrari 250 GT SWB Bertone –

One of the Italian designers developed bodywork chassis Ferrari hoping to snatch order from wealthy clients , others were glad to flatter the vanity of the old man Enzo , again based on a very possible return the favor . However, Nuccio Bertone, the famous ” painted ” body – masterpiece for korotkobaznym 250 GT for a different reason . Just maestro love to ride a Ferrari, but can not stand the work of competing ” karrotsery .”
The ” Commendatore ” had a good relationship with Nuccio , so Bertone was the only company other than Pininfarina, has received approval for the creation of a body of the legendary 250 GT SWB. And get the song , not a machine ! Determined to more aerodynamic , you can say more air vein than ” pininfarinovsky ” option from the Bertone coupe is elegant solution -aggressive back and face. Grille, for example, vividly reminded champion Phil Hill’s Ferrari 156 .

– Ferrari 512S Modulo –

Peep through the keyhole of tomorrow – a thankless task. Guess what will be important in the future – all brushed aside , they say, it was a no-brainer . And you can not guess – just rags cast aside . In the early 70’s to the future of sports cars tried to glance designer Paolo Pininfarina Martin … and guessed wrong . It so happened that at the disposal of Turin ” karrotserii ” was chassis 800 -strong racing Ferrari 512S. Setting the pile of it Smasher maestro Martin took literally and created this …
Perhaps in no other history of Ferrari cars, calling at fans of the brand as an unambiguous response . Misses in the charism and tradition of the brand was absolute ! Although the logo appear on the machine , for example , DeTomaso or Lamborghini , and instead turn up their noses , all the ambitious project would be discussed talented designer … But the fact Ferrari and Ferrari, to ask for the most strict account. But today, almost symmetrical silhouette Modulo looks wonderfully . A true masterpiece of automotive futurism , never who found traits of reality .

– Ferrari 365 GTB / 4 Shooting Brake –

Opposites – because they are drawn to each other despite the distance. What could be farther from each other than a supercar and a family sedan ? So in fact there – an obsession ” Shooting Stars break ” or , if you will, ” hunting wagon ” dominates the minds of more than a dozen years. Today, even in the company chickened Am all-wheel drive FF – not a variation on the sports barn ? But the love story of Ferrari and versatile even older.
In the 70’s a Luigi Chinetti Jr. (though why some – it’s the son of the Chinetti , who won the first race for Ferrari , ” 24 Hours of Le Mans” ) dared to offer their own interpretation of ” tourer ” based on the already bold in stylistically 365GTB/Daytona. Supersaray , handcrafted by masters niche ” sports car – Builder » Panther Westwind of Surrey English , we got : a) beautiful, b) fast and b) expensive. So that each of the owners of the 350- strong Ferrari 365 GTB / 4 Shooting Break subsequently sold it to the benefit of his own bank account.

– Ferrari 288 GTO Evoluzione –

Many , but seeing this car and not understanding what was happening, already sit scribbling in the comments : “Hello , darling edition ! Your slowpoke – famous author called F40 some kind of “evolution .” Well, yes , about the way it is. The truth is that the 288 GTO Evoluzione is really more like a Ferrari F40, rather than on the actual 288 th .
In fact, the 288 GTO Evoluzione – it never came to being a rally Ferrari Group B. The project entered its final stage , when the FIA (FISA) went and canceled the B group , as such. After a series of frightening accidents with dozens of victims from the officials , and the choice was not.
Left with nothing , managers Ferrari quickly oriented . Rally of the project kicked all rallijnaja , consume 2.8 -liter to 2.9 -liter , in passing , to improve the reliability of its derated from 650 to 470 horsepower. And turned the famous F40. That he returned to Maranello crown of the fastest production car world.

– Ferrari Mythos –

It does not even have to sell. Pininfarina in daily procedure showed the world a masterpiece : half-forgotten body ” Burkett ” that is, in Italian , ” boat “, with no roof and side windows. Hoisted on the chassis serial 12 -cylinder Testarossa, this body is only at first glance was an example of such a current in the late 80’s cool design . Mythos is not so easy !
Difficult enough for a passenger car with mid-engine layout located behind heatsinks elegantly highlighted ” two-piece ” of the body : the front part of the car as it follows from the more general to “get ” the stern. Body way entirely carbon , and the rear wing – active , rising by 30 centimeters. And it’s not too much – Mythos because actually accelerated to 290 kilometers per hour! The Sultan of Brunei was so fascinated by the ” keel “, which ordered a first one and then the second. So , two -thirds of the world’s Ferrari Mythos are respected in the garage Hassanal Bolkiah .

– Ferrari FXX –

It’s nice that not everything in this world is bought and sold. You can be rich and famous as Abramovich like Brad Pitt, but Ferrari will still not allow you to roll on the FXX supercar on public roads . Unless, of course , we are talking about ways of civilized countries.
The evolution of the legendary Ferrari Enzo created specifically and exclusively for track days , during which the happy owners of 800 -strong cars had yet to listen to boring monologues training instructors on how to properly go into a turn , and that is the apex . But FXX owners have every reason to proud to be exactly the same Ferrari owned and seven-time Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher . German hypercar got for free – that is , for years of service . The others paid approximately EUR 1.5 million .

– Ferrari SP12 EC –
(2012 )

Steeper childhood fantasies and youthful dreams are only requests the players and rock musicians . What would a reasonable person in response to a request to give newcomer Ferrari 458 Italia (V8, 4,5 liter , 562 horsepower ) features the classic 512 Berlinetta Boxer, issued at the period from 1973 th to 1984 th? Yes, yes – sent to , but with materkom !
But what will you do if the applicant is none other than Eric Clapton – the legendary guitarist , Officer of the Order of the British Empire , and just a good person ? For the sake of the client in Maranello rasstaralis . The unique car , the keys to which Mr. Clapton was presented in 2012, can be called a masterpiece of modern engineering, and unworthy of the great glory of Ferrari factory tuning – it all depends on the mood . However, the project was interesting .

– Ferrari Sergio –
( 2013 )

Today the past greatness of Italian ” karrotsery ” reminds a little . Forgotten or nearly forgotten once gremevshie throughout Europe Touring and Vignale, teetering on the edge of financial disaster Bertone, Italdesign bought by the Germans from VW, and only Pininfarina still living from hand to mouth . Let mainly due to non-road projects , but still … the more that the Italians regularly delight and four masterpieces.
That’s Sergio, built on the chassis of 562 -horsepower Ferrari 458 Spider and first presented at the Geneva Motor Show this spring , just avaricious man kicks a tear.
