It's hard to ignore the possibility that Messers Rolls and Royce are today spinning in their graves as German-owned BMW, the famous Rolls-Royce marque firmly in its grasp, launches an all-new, largely German-built Phantom model, writes deputy editor Graeme Roberts. Far from the days when virtually every panel was lovingly beaten into shape and every last nut and bolt hewn from the raw ingot by time-served craftsmen in a time-warp British factory, the new Roller and its V12 engine will be substantially made at a German BMW plant and shipped to a new environment-friendly facility at Goodwood in West Sussex for painting, trimming and final assembly.
