Rolls-Royce is all set to celebrate the centenary of 20 H.P., better known as the Twenty. Designed by Sir Henry Royce himself, it was launched on October 6, 1922.

As the company celebrates this crucial milestone, let's look at the origins of the 'Twenty'. Known for being one of the most influential models to grace the automobile industry, Twenty was a breakthrough in many aspects. It was the first-ever driver's car, and not a passenger one, from Rolls-Royce. Today, Twenty is regarded as the proud ancestor of models such as the Rolls-Royce Ghost, Dawn, Wraith, and Cullinan.

Apart from its remarkable straight-six 3.1-litre engine and advanced engineering design, Twenty comprised technical innovations, like a light body, which served as the foundation for Rolls-Royce engines and automobiles for the following three decades. Despite being a model with less horsepower than the Silver Ghost, it maintained the standard of excellence in terms of production.

These features helped Twenty to gain immense popularity among loyal Rolls-Royce enthusiasts, along with new customers who did not prefer a large car with an outdated appearance, especially those for whom the purchase price and ongoing running costs were crucial considerations.
