The purchase of my first Rolls-Royce in 1975 in odd circumstances was, I believe, my talisman for future success.
It was still an era when ostentation played a major part in the making of a business magnate, though the principle does not necessarily hold true today.
That in itself does not deflect from the fact that Rolls-Royce still make the best cars in the world, which are the dream of many a car enthusiast who happens to afford the luxury of owning one.
Brian Sewell’s last book before his untimely death is The Man Who Built the Best Car in the World, beautifully illustrated by Stefan Marjoram and written in such a way as to appeal to children as well as adults.
Quartet has released the book early, a month before its official publication date, to pay tribute to Brian who will also be remembered as a great car lover.
