Next time you're in Munich, try to pry yourself away from the Hofbrauhaus for long enough to hit the BMW Museum, where they just unveiled their first-ever Rolls-Royce Motor Cars exhibition. Called "Strive for Perfection", you'll be amazed that the display doesn't seek to tell the horrifying story of Joan Rivers' face, but rather to tell RR's in chronological order, starting with the meeting of founders Sir Henry Royce and Charles Stewart Rolls in 1904. Spread over five floors; the exhibit's got 15 Rolls dating from 1907 to 2012. They've even got the 10EX, which was engineered by Sir Henry Royce himself in 1926, and debuted the "New Phantom" engine, making it one of the "most significant experimental cars ever", so it totally does ATM (Aston-to-Mouth). The overarching narrative's complimented by displays covering coach building, craftsmanship, bespoke design, engineering, and advertising, with special emphasis put on the evolution of iconic trademarks like the Pantheon radiator grille, and the winged-lady hood ornament known as Spirit of Ecstasy, which you can now go back to chasing at the Hofbrauhaus.
