Rolls Royce Springfield Silver Ghost Playboy Roadster
Hello everyone, here's my newest model, a vintage car from a long time ago. This is my entry for a challenge for a group over Flickr called Lugnets, which in short you pick a number from 1-100 then the admins assign you a mission to build a car from a list of cars that has already been written by them. So my luck throw me at this model. To be honest I'd never thought of building a car from that era, but I'm absolutely glad that I entered this challenge as I had a LOT of fun building this sexy car... So here it is ladies and gentlemen, the Rolls Royce Springfield Silver Ghost Playboy Roadster, hope you like it, thanks for looking :-)
About this creation
ROLLS ROYCE

Rolls-Royce Limited is a renowned British car-manufacturing and, later, aero-engine manufacturing company founded by Charles Stewart Rolls and Sir Frederick Henry Royce on 15 March 1906 as the result of a partnership formed in 1904. In addition to the company's reputation for superior engineering quality which has led to its epithet as the "best car in the world", Rolls-Royce Limited was known for manufacturing the high-powered "R" engines responsible for land and air speed records as well as successful performances in automobile racing.

In 1971, Rolls-Royce was crippled by the costs of developing the advanced RB211 jet engine, resulting in the nationalisation of the company as Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited. In 1973, the car division was separated from the parent company as Rolls-Royce Motors. Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited continued as a nationalised company until it was privatised in 1987 asRolls-Royce plc.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost is both to a car model and one specific car from that series.




ROLLS ROYCE SILVER GHOST

The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost is both to a car model and one specific car from that series.

Originally named the "40/50 h.p." the chassiswas first made at Royce's Manchester works, with production moving to Derby in July 1908, and also, between 1921 and 1926, in Springfield, Massachusetts. Chassis no. 60551, registeredAX 201, was the car that was originally given the name "Silver Ghost." Other 40/50 hp cars were also given names, but the Silver Ghost title was taken up by the press, and soon all 40/50s were called by the name, a fact not officially recognised by Rolls-Royce until 1925, when the Phantom range was launched.

The Silver Ghost was the origin of Rolls-Royce's claim of making the "Best car in the world" – a phrase coined not by themselves, but by the prestigious publication Autocar in 1907.

The chassis and engine were also used as the basis of a range of Rolls-Royce Armoured Cars.

Lets start with some front shots of this Legendary treasure:















Side view...


And some rear shots...








And with the roof...






The interior:

welcome to the interior sectipn everyone:

take a look at the interior here, looks simple and nice at the same time...




Here you can see the folding rear seat, weird position but still a very nice addition to this legendary car...


the trunk, yes, this is the trunk of this car, a goodies box that been attached to the rear section of the car...




And finally the engine:

The engine is a 7428cc inline-six cylinder unit capable of producing 65 horsepower. There is a three-speed selective sliding gearbox and a screw-and-nut steering system. The brakes are mechanical internal expanding in the rear.

Wow! This is by far my favorite build from you. Not that every car you've built is amazing. I just love cars from the 20s and 30s. Those beautiful fenders! The engine detail is magnificent and I love the interior. The rumble seat is especially cool. I also love the hood ornament you built to display with this Beauty.

I like how you use just the right bricks in just the right places to get smooth shapes. You must be very good at visualising how bricks could be used. A ravishingly beautiful car (to steal another builder's catchphrase!).

I guess both the scale and style were a big break from what's "normal" for you. But you handled it incredibly well as always!! It just goes to show how talented you really are when you make something so different, and it still looks every bit as good as the modern-style supercars that you usually build. Here's the always mandatory 5/5.

Quoting Nils O. Wow, that's really a piece of Lego art! A vintage car wasn't really in your comfort zone, was it? The result nevertheless is awesome. You really captured the spirit of the original car and put it into this model. The figurine is a very nice addition. Great job as usual! :-))
Many thanks my friend! Actually yes it was a bit out of my comfort zone, but I had a lot of fun building it, not to mention the hood ornament, it's even not a car ;-) glad you like it, always appreciate your feedback.
