ROLLS-ROYCE RECREATES HISTORIC MOTOR SHOW AT 2019 GOODWOOD REVIVAL
- All-new March Motor Works replicates period Rolls-Royce motor show stand
- Display features 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I convertible, together with rare examples of other models launched at the event
- 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II LWB to lead Course Director’s entourage on the famous Goodwood Circuit throughout the weekend
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars marks the 21st edition of the Goodwood Revival this weekend with a display that takes visitors on a journey back in time to the glamorous world of the 1950s. For the 2019 Goodwood Revival, the March Motor Works will be painstakingly transformed into a replica of the marque’s motor show stand of the period.
The centrepiece will be an example of the company’s pinnacle product of the Revival period, the 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I two-door drophead coupé. Finished in Black and Red with a matching hood, the car is one of just a handful crafted by coachbuilder H. J. Mulliner.
Rolls-Royce will be represented on the legendary motor circuit throughout the event by a magnificent 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II long wheelbase saloon. Finished in Sage Green over Smoke Green, this imposing four-door limousine, which has recorded just 9,500 miles in its 58 years, will form part of the Course Director’s entourage.
Invited guests will have the opportunity to experience the marque’s defining ‘magic carpet ride’ in surroundings where the only audible sound is, famously, the ticking of the mechanical dashboard clock.
Throughout the weekend, visitors will also be able to see cars from today’s Rolls-Royce model families, as a specially-selected fleet conveys invited VIPs to the Revival from the nearby Home of Rolls-Royce in the height of modern luxury.
