Myth: The only thing that you can hear in a Rolls Royce is the clock
Well this maybe true at lower speeds, but as the speeds increase, there is very minimal amount of noise that does creep in from the outside. It is much less than on any other luxury vehicle on sale, but you cannot go as far as saying that the clock is the only thing you will hear in the Rolls.
Myth: Rolls Royce badge colour change from red to black
The badge on the Rolls-Royce was changed from red to black not, as popularly believed to commemorate Henry Royce’s death, but because Royce himself decided that Black was aesthetically more appropriate. Some customers complained that the red badge often clashed with the colour of the car and hence the decision was made to change the colour of the logo.
Myth: They are so perfectly built that they’ll never need to be recalled

Rolls Royce issued a recall for the Ghost back in 2015. This may have been a one-off case, however it goes to show that nothing is perfect.
