A Time Honoured Relationship
The Peninsula further cemented its historic relationship with Rolls-Royce, the luxury car marque that has forged its history alongside the hotel's, as a true bastion of luxury. Celebrating a unique relationship that has seen The Peninsula Hong Kong's unsurpassed record of the largest single orders of Rolls-Royce cars ever placed, to mark the celebration of its 85th anniversary, the hotel unveiled a vintage model of exceptional provenance for one very special night only.
Displayed on a stage set up in the hotel’s forecourt on the night of the anniversary festivities, Chairman of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, The Honourable Sir Michael Kadoorie, paid his respects to the hotel's stellar past and exciting future, against a backdrop of the 1925 Rolls-Royce Phantom I. With its unique historical provenance detailed on a plaque positioned alongside the car, its royal origins as part of the collection of regal automotive aficionado His Highness The Maharaja of Jodhpur and later His Highness The Maharaja of Bikaner during the days of the British Raj were displayed for all to see.
