Rolls-Royce Limited was a British car and, from 1914, aero-engine manufacturing company founded by Henry Royce and Charles Stewart Rolls on 15 March 1906. In 1973, the car division was separated from Rolls-Royce Limited as Rolls-Royce Motors. Rolls-Royce Limited continued as a nationalized company until it was privatized in 1987 as Rolls-Royce plc. Rolls-Royce is now a subsidiary of BMW. Brief history aside, this is an outstanding luxury car rental and brand. A regal Rolls-Royce rental is a fantastic way to feel the history of the car in Miami, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
