The name Rolls Royce was first linked together during 1904, but without the 'Hyphen' and used on stationary and one 10 H.P. car.
Rolls-Royce Limited was first registered during 1906.
All the early cars were road tested around the streets of Manchester, where the first factory was based, but a purpose built test track was used from 1908 onwards.
Henry Royce designed most of the testing machinary himself.
Once Rolls and Royce were working together, Rolls promised to sell all the cars Royce could make.
Before embarking on the design and manufacture of cars, Royce had been running a very successful electrical company, Rolls on the other hand was a very early motoring pioneer, setting up various schemes and services to help the fledgling motorist.
