The Silver Cloud was launched in 1955 on the same day that their great British manufacturing rivals Bentley launched their S Series

The reaction comes following a report in the Maidenhead Advertiser detailing a rally of classic Rolls Royce cars that is set to take place on April 22nd through Berkshire in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Silver Cloud, one of the brand’s most iconic models.

The Silver Cloud was launched in 1955 on the same day that their great British manufacturing rivals Bentley launched their S Series, signalling the start of what many believe to be the golden age of car culture in this country.

The rally, lasting for two days, is taking place along the same roads of the original launch, with organisers hoping to recreate the legendary release photo that was taken 60 years ago. The Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club, who are at the helm of the event, have said that “Members of the RREC attending this event will be given the unique opportunity to recreate the original press photographs from 1955 in their own cars before enjoying a quintessentially British luncheon at The Hinds Head.”

A spokesperson for Abbey Rolls Hire, market leaders in vintage car hire in the South West, has released a statement following the report: “It’s wonderful to see such a fitting homage being paid to one of Great Britain’s national treasures.

“The Rolls Royce has always held a special place within our culture and it’s great to see that the spirit of ’55 is still being kept alive until this day. Here at Abbey Rolls Hire, we are great believers in the preserving of tradition and hopefully this rally will inspire another generation of enthusiasts to keep Rolls Royce where it should be – at the forefront of British motoring’s iconic history.”
