Rolls-Royce will build 35 Aviator Edition models. They have been inspired by keen aviator and Rolls-Royce co-founder, Charles Rolls and the Supermarine S6B which competed in the Schnider Trophy, an air race held near Rolls-Royce’s factory between 1931 and 1933. The Rolls-Royce connection is the V12 supercharged R-Type aero engine that powered the Supermarine planes in 1929 and 1931.
