London hosts Spirit of Ecstasy centenary parade
One hundred Rolls-Royce motor cars took to the streets of London on 6 February 2011 to celebrate a very special anniversary. The date marked the centenary of the world's most famous hood mascot, the Spirit of Ecstasy, which was first fitted to Rolls-Royce models in 1911.
"The Spirit of Ecstasy is a genuine icon, a graceful goddess who has adorned the prow of Rolls-Royce cars past and present," said Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos.

This centenary drive was a fitting tribute to such an important figure for our company."
