Does BMW own Rolls-Royce?

So, who owns Rolls-Royce? Does BMW own Rolls-Royce or does Rolls-Royce operate independently? Many Los Angeles and Glendale car enthusiasts have heard about the close relationship between BMW and Rolls-Royce, and that’s because the brand became a BMW-controlled entity in 2003. BMW was a natural fit for the brand, because it already supplied high-performance engines and other components for use in the lineup. Thus, the two became intertwined—and the rest is history.

How Did Rolls-Royce Start?

Though there was a separate Rolls-Royce brand founded in 1906, the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars that we know today has its roots in 1998, in the United Kingdom. The first car in production was the Rolls-Royce Phantom, a four-door saloon that made its debut in 2003. And though the brand has expanded its lineup over the years, the focus is always quality over quantity. Here are most recent models available at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Pasadena:
