Ten years have past since BMW Group acquired the Rolls-Royce brand, and the Germans have decided to celebrate the decade by opening a special exhibition in their Munchen-based museum.
The first-ever Rolls-Royce display to be hosted at the BMW Museum features 15 of the British company's famed cars and covers more than 1,000 square meters over five floors.

Named "Strive for Perfection", the exhibition lines up Rolls-Royce's vehicles built from 1907 to 2012. While the cars are the main attraction, the company's coachbuilders, engineers and icons, including the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, are also highlighted for those interested to find out more about the London-based automaker.

Among the 15 cars parked in the BMW Museum, guests will be able to have a look at the torpedo-styled 1926 Rolls-Royce 10EX prototype, built by the British company to preview the "New Phantom".

"Our contemporary motor cars present a unique blend of German expertise and technology and outstanding British craftsmanship and design. It is therefore appropriate that this key moment in the story of this Great British manufacturing success story is told in the BMW Museum," said Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos.

The Rolls-Royce exhibition will be opened to the public from March 21 through the end of the month.
