Background on Rolls-Royce
Charles Stewart Rolls and his associate, Frederick Henry Royce, started the car company Rolls-Royce in 1904. Following a string of financial losses in the early 70s, Rolls-Royce filed for bankruptcy and was nationalized by the British government. The company changed hands again in the 80s (sold to Vickers PLC) and in the 90s (sold to Volkswagen AG). In 1998, Rolls-Royce became a wholly owned subsidiary of BMW which acquired the rights to the brand and the logo.
