Silver Ghosts complete mammoth tribute tour

| 5 Jul 2013

A convoy of 47 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts travelled more than 1800 miles to conclude the 16-day Centenary Alpine Trial on 29 June.

The cars journeyed through countries such as Austria, Croatia, Slovenia, Switzerland and Italy in tribute to the original 1913 event that was won by James Radley.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce, said: “The Centenary Alpine Trial has clearly embraced the Spirit of Adventure that is synonymous with Rolls-Royce, and I applaud the participants for their resolve and determination.

“The 1913 Alpenfahrt led commentators to declare that Rolls-Royce built the ‘Best Car in the World’. The 2013 Centenary Alpine Trial reinforced that message, and demonstrated that the Company continues to do so to this day.”
