Looking for the perfect Rolls-Royce has never been this easy. A new resource named Provenance Pre-owned Stock Locator has been launched by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Potential clients can go online and search for exclusive Provenance cars promptly and effortlessly using an iPad, computer or smart phone.

Provenance will only include the finest examples of pre-owned Rolls-Royce models. The buyers are assured with a fully-transferable 24 month warranty and supplies to all cars come from the Rolls-Royce global dealer network.

To get to the Provenance pre-owned stock locator, you could access it from the home page of or from local dealer websites. It features easy-to-navigate search filters and potential buyers can make direct car-by-car comparisons.

Cars can be selected within a particular country then the choices can be filtered down with regards to model, age, mileage, budget or color. The user can also sign-up for alerts and be informed via email and SMS when search criteria have been met.

Users can also sift through all the vehicles available or check out what vehicles will arrive soon in the program.

Rolls-Royce Chief Executive Officer Torsten Müller-Otvos said that their clients are “busy people“ who only expect the best quality and excellence as standard. He explained that those who are considering buying either a new or a pre-owned Rolls-Royce will find the buying experience to be incredibly smooth.

The Provenance program offers two years’ warranty and two years’ complimentary servicing at any authorized dealer anywhere in the world if the owner decides to relocate. Signing up for this program also gives the client an independently checked vehicle history and mileage verification, pre-delivery inspection and comprehensive preparation.

Operating from Goodwood, England Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited is a luxury auto maker and brand wholly owned subsidiary of the BMW Group. The brand traces its roots from auto-making business founded in 1904 by the partnership between Charles Rolls and Henry Royce. The partners formed Rolls-Royce Limited on March 15, 1906.

In February 1971, Rolls-Royce Limited voluntarily entered receivership due to severe financial problems. Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited was incorporated in April 1971 to acquire the business and assets of the four divisions of Rolls-Royce Limited that are connected with gas turbine engines. Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited was allowed to use various Rolls-Royce trademarks.

In 1973, the UK government decided to sell the automotive business of Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited -- which eventually became Rolls-Royce Plc in 1986 – to focus on jet engine manufacture. This led to the birth of Rolls-Royce Motors, which was acquired by Vickers in 1980 and sold it to Volkswagen in 1998.

However, Rolls-Royce plc, and not Rolls-Royce Motors, controls the Rolls-Royce brand name and logo. In 1998, Rolls-Royce plc licensed the Rolls-Royce name and logo to BMW through Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited.

A dispute emerged and following talks between Volkswagen and BMW, a solution was made. VW would still use the Rolls-Royce name and logo until the end of 2002. BMW’s Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited became the exclusive maker of Rolls-Royce branded cars starting January 1, 2003.
