Premiering at the marque’s website, ardent admirers of the world’s most prestigious car-maker can now learn of its journey through a series of short films. The first episode of The House of Rolls-Royce series, titled ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ can now be viewed to learn the story of the iconic muse that has adorned the prow of every Rolls-Royce for the past 105 years.
To tell the story of luxury’s most celebrated icon, the muse herself- Spirit of Ecstasy narrates her tale of inception as told through the mellifluous voice of award-winning actress Kate Winslet.
