Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club (RREC) book launch at the Dorchester Hotel


The RREC’s newest publication Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club 2015 Yearbook: Celebrating 90 Years of the Phantom was launched at London’s prestigious Dorchester Hotel last week at a VIP champagne reception.

Written by a collection of Rolls-Royce experts and motoring journalists, the beautifully designed, 444-page hardback publication explores the origins and heritage of one of Rolls-Royce’s most revered motor-car models – the Phantom – and delves into the stories and personalities that go to make the marque “the best car in the world” to this day.

In keeping with the event’s luxurious setting, a 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental was on display in the Ballroom to greet guests, who were then invited to enjoy a champagne and canapé reception.

Produced by publisher St James’s House, the book is the annual flagship publication of the RREC – one of the largest car clubs in the world and a leading authority on the iconic Rolls-Royce brand.

“It’s been a real joy working with the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club on this publication,” says St James’s House Director Richard Freed. “Their passion for the cars is infectious, and the name Rolls-Royce itself is synonymous with luxury and design excellence the world over.”
