Founded in 1884, Rolls-Royce is a good touch over 100 years old. Its "Spirit of Ecstasy", however—the winged woman adorning the hood of its luxury chariots—just hit the big one-double-o. So what do you do when your hood ornament hits its centenary? You throw her a party, of course.Â
On Sunday, February 6th, the brand led a procession of historic automobiles through London, passing landmarks like Big Ben (the clock) and Piccadilly Circus. While of course the parade included the prerequisite Phantom and Ghost, long time aficionados also had a chance to spot pristine examples of the Silver Ghost, Silver Cloud, Silver Spur and Silver Shadow.
Word also has it that this was just the start of the celebration. That's one lucky lady.
