Testing has begun on the Rolls-Royce all-new aluminium space-frame architecture, which will underpin all future Rolls-Royce models. Engineering mules have taken to roads around the world. The assessment of the new proprietary architecture is the first stage of a development program that will see a new generation of Rolls-Royce motor cars become available from early 2018.

“Since 2003 and the commissioning of the new Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has reset the benchmark for luxury motoring,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

“Now it is time to take the next step in the journey. This is why I am announcing today that on road testing of our all-new proprietary architecture is beginning. This new architecture of pure luxury represents considerable investment in the future of our great brand.”
