Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited designs, builds and sells luxury autos and car parts around the world. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited is a wholly owned BMW subsidiary founded in 1998 after BMW obtained the rights to the Rolls-Royce name and logo from Rolls-Royce PLC and gained the rights to the Spirit of Ecstasy trademark along with the Rolls-Royce grill shape trademark from Volkswagen AG.

In spite of the fact that the Rolls-Royce brand has been used since 1906, the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars BMW AG subsidiary has no relationship to Rolls-Royce vehicles manufactured before 2003.
