The spectacular London 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony was by all accounts a fitting, memorable and historic finale. Auto enthusiasts had much to applaud. The ceremony had a real driving theme. Including London Taxis, traditional British sports-cars including: Austin Healey, MG and Sunbeam cars as well as some old Rolls-Royce vehicles. From vintage mod scooters to the exploding Del Boy driven Reliant van there were many interesting and exciting vehicles on display. However three English White finished convertibles were hand built by Rolls-Royce in Goodwood especially for the ceremony and made a tremendous showstopper.
The three Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II Drophead Coupés used were historic for other reasons too. These special motor cars sported newly-designed badges for the first time in Rolls-Royce’s 108‑year history. The new badges replaced the traditional double R-R for the first time since the company started in 1904.
Faster, Higher, Stronger
These bespoke Rolls-Royce cars are likely to become three of the most collectable (and apparently unobtainable) Rolls-Royce cars ever made. The self-righting wheel centres feature the words ‘London 2012’ surrounded by the Olympic motto, ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’ (‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’).
The badges are complemented by unique tread plates identifying each car as ‘One of Three’.
