IntroCar's Prestige Parts® Display of Products at the Rolls-Royce Owners' Club Annual Meet in San Diego

   22 June 2022

IntroCar at the Rolls-Royce Owners' Club (RROC) Annual Rally 2022

IntroCar is attending the Rolls-Royce Owners' Club Annual Rally this week in San Diego and we are displaying a number of our most recent Prestige Parts® products. These are Rolls-Royce & Bentley parts which we're particularly excited to introduce to the market for enthusiasts and specialists. 

Below is a summary of each of the products out on display along with links to buy online. Some are still only prototypes but will soon be available! From plastics and 3D printing, CAD design, high volume manufacture and reverse engineering as well as age old but successful techniques, we have a full range of our manufacturing skill set on display with these Rolls-Royce and Bentley new parts - many of which are no longer factory available, and others which are uprated versions of the original equipment versions.. such as our new V8 Cylinder Head Gasket, which has been manufactured specifically for the aftermarket! 

What We're Displaying this Week!

 

INTERIOR ROOF LAMP (UD4841-X)

Bentley S1-3, Rolls-Royce SCI-III

Long unavailable, this lamp has been reintroduced via the Prestige Parts® range. It demonstrates our commitment to producing those finishing parts that complete a car!

 

TWIN FUEL PUMP REPLACEMENT KIT (PF27287PBKT-X)

Bentley Arnage Green Label, Arnage Le Mans, Arnage Red Label, Arnage LWB, Arnage 4.4L Birkin

The Prestige Parts® range of fuel pumps for classic post-war Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars is unrivalled in its scope. This twin fuel pump assembly is provided complete with brackets and mountings, and is priced below the cost of a single original fuel pump!

 

DOUBLE POLY V-BELT (07C145933T-X)

Bentley Continental GT, Continental GTC, Continental Flying Spur, Continental Supersports, Supersports, Supersports Convertible & Flying Spur (W12 engine)

We are extending our range of Prestige Parts® drive belts, including latest offerings for the Bentley Continental GT & Arnage range. Prestige Parts® belts incorporate the latest manufacturing techniques and improvements. In the case of V-belts they have been optimised to provide a larger contact area with the pulley to reduce slippage or noise.

WHEEL HUB ASSY (3W0407613E-X)

Bentley Continental GT, Continental GTC, Continental Flying Spur, Continental GT3-R, Continental Supersports, Supersports, Supersports Convertible & Flying Spur

We pride ourselves on developing the common and special bearings for post-war Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars, including those for the earliest and latest models. Bearings are chosen from precision manufacturers for long life and easy fit.

TOOL TRAY MOULDING (RF4501-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn & Bentley MkVI (cars equipped with metal tray and bakelite screwdriver)

The toolkit is often a finishing component in a classic car, but until they were developed for the Prestige Parts® range, the rubber moulding often let the side down, as rubber degrades over time, leaving a cracked and powdery appearance. We now supply tool tray mouldings for all the range of Mk VI, R-Type, Silver Dawn, Silver Wraith, S1-3 & SCI-III.

COOLANT GALLERY, 4.5L ENGINE (UPGRADED) (RE16345-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn (chassis SFC24 on), Silver Wraith standard wheelbase (chassis WOF1 on) and Silver Wraith long wheelbase (all chassis); Bentley MkVI & R-Type (chassis B 146 MD on)

The coolant gallery is an often neglected but critical component of any engine rebuild. Failure to replace this part can lead to poor coolant distribution across the six cylinders due to failure of the part or aggregation of salts. The Prestige Parts® gallery is a no-expense-spared upgrade on the original part. It is manufactured from specially tooled extruded tube (we had to make 1,200 yards of tube) that guarantees straightness (the original gallery was folded and soldered, which encourages bending and twists). The outlet slots have been optimised to provide even distribution of coolant around all six cylinders.

PIPE ASSEMBLY, HOTSPOT TO WATER PUMP (UPGRADED) (RE11290-X)

Bentley Mk VI (from GT-series on, right hand drive) & R-Type (right hand drive).

This pipe is conspicuously sited at the top of the engine but is often damaged or twisted when it has been removed as the fixing nut tends to bond to the tube over time. Finished in the original nickel, this pipe features six individually manufactured and assembled subcomponents.

COOLANT REGULATOR HOUSING (UPGRADED) (07D121111AR-X)

Bentley Continental GT, Continental Flying Spur, Flying Spur, Continental GTC, Continental Supersports, Supersports, & Supersports Convertible (W12 engine cars)

The Prestige Parts® thermostat range for classic and modern Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars is now unrivalled. Investment is key, and we buy multi-year stocks to ensure we can access the right manufacturers. Thermostats are tested on multi-million dollar machines and the latest wax technology is employed to ensure their life is extended far beyond that of the original design.

THERMOSTAT 88°C (UPGRADED) (UE30193-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II/III & Bentley S2/3

The Prestige Parts® thermostat range for classic and modern Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars is now unrivalled. Investment is key, and we buy multi-year stocks to ensure we can access the right manufacturers. Thermostats are tested on multi-million dollar machines and the latest wax technology is employed to ensure their life is extended far beyond that of the original design.

DISTRIBUTOR CAP V12 (OE) (PB28144PA-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph, Silver Seraph LOL & Park Ward

It is impossible to do justice to the Prestige Parts® ignition range here, but be assured that it is the widest in the world. It includes classic post-war ignition systems to the latest VW-owned Bentley models.

PIPE PUMP TO CONNECTOR, LEVELLING SYSTEM (PC102973PF-X)

Bentley Arnage R, Arnage RL, Arnage T, Arnage Diamond Series, Arnage Blue Train, Arnage Final Series, Brooklands Coupe & Azure

One of the main vulnerabilities of the Silver Seraph and Arnage range of vehicles is the number of flexible hoses required to run the hydraulic and steering systems, many of which have begun to leak over time. Most are expensive from Bentley Motors, and a considerable number have been made obselete. A huge effort has been made to preserve availability by developing hoses for the Prestige Parts® range, keeping these cars on the road.

KIT REPAIR BOOT INNER (PD29985PA-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph, Silver Seraph LOL & Park Ward, Bentley Arnage Green Label, Arnage 4.4L Birkin, Arnage Red Label & Arnage Le Mans

Rubber Boots, Bellows and Gaiters are something of a specialty, and that's a good thing because they protect more expensive parts of the car and degrade over time. As we write this we have a further ten gaiters with various applications under development right now!

BALL JOINT REAR DAMPER (PD24465PA-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph, Silver Seraph LOL & Park Ward; Bentley Arnage Green Label, Arnage Red Label, Arnage Le Mans, Arnage LWB, Arnage 4.4L Birkin, Arnage R, Arnage RL, & Arnage T

Heavy cars eat suspension. It’s a fact. And luxury cars need good suspension. Fortunately, we've developed the most comprehensive range of bushes, ball joints and shock absorbers for classic and modern Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars anywhere in the world. All suspension components go through our rigorous quality assurance program.

FILLER CAP, RADIATOR (RE11320-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn & Silver Wraith; Bentley Mk VI & R-Type

No longer available from Bentley Motors, but now a Prestige Parts® product we're proud to supply. Any surprise?

PAD, NUMBER PLATE, US SPEC (UB14153-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, Silver Shadow II, Silver Wraith II  & Corniche (1971-1995); Bentley T1, T2 & Continental

We've always prided ourselves on our range of rubber seals for classic Rolls-Royce and Bentley, and we're developing more special seals all the time, including for more esoteric coachbuilt models. High quality seals requires large investment in tooling, and the ability to purchase multi-year stocks. All our seals are tested by our in house Quality Assurance Director for fit and function.

CASING ASSY SEAT GEARBOX (UB39167CS-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit & Silver Spur (chassis 01001-16970); Bentley Mulsanne, Eight, Mulsanne Turbo & Turbo R (chassis 01001-16970)

This is just one of the products we've introduced using the latest CAD-design and 3D printing technology to replicate (and improve upon) what was originally an injection-moulded component. We use glass-fibre reinforced polymers to create a much more resilient casing.

SEAL ELBOW FLANGE, AIR INTAKE (UD1461-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I, I & III; Bentley S1, S2 & S3

As the restoration world has grown, so has demand for rubber components that are inevitably failing due to age. We continue to develop more and more to aid our customers in their quest for detail and perfection. This takes commercial bravery, as tooling costs and order volumes are high, but we are doing our very best!

STEERING COLUMN GAITER (UR1998-X)

Bentley S1 Continental

This is a rare beast, but that didn't stop us developing this steering gaiter, with help from a Pebble Beach-winning Rolls-Royce restorer. We're not stopping here, either. More products just like this are in the pipeline.

STEERING FLUID RESERVOIR (UE46315-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit, Silver Spur, Flying Spur Silver Dawn & Corniche; Bentley Mulsanne, Mulsanne S, Mulsanne SL, Eight, Turbo R, Turbo RT & Brooklands, Continental, Continental R, Continental T, Continental SC & Azure

This reservoir has long been unavailable, and was previously only replaced by fitting an unsightly fabricated metal reservoir. This product has been 3D printed in two halves using reinforced glass-fibre polymer. The outlets are strengthened with metal tubes, and a magnet is situated at the bottom to trap metallic particles so they do not travel around the system.

BUMPER RUBBER RH FRONT (UR18792-X)

Rolls-Royce Camargue

We've now developed a huge range of Prestige Parts® reinforced moulded bumper components, including those for Corniche and Camargue models. All our bumpers feature stainless steel reinforcement (to prevent the corrosion that ruined the original versions) which is 50% thicker to prevent the moulding twisting over time.

COVER LOCK HUBCAP CHROME (UR71751CHR-X)

Rolls-Royce & Bentley models equipped with 15", 16", 17" & 18" Alloy Wheels

Over time, many of us have lost a lock cover from our alloy wheels. Unfortunately, most are no longer supplied by Bentley Motors. We're now stocking our own versions, so that unsightly omission can at last be resolved!

IGNITION COIL V8, TWIN TURBO (07V905115A-X)

Bentley Arnage R, Arnage RL, Arnage T, Arnage Blue Train, Arnage Diamond Series, Arnage Final Series, Azure & Brooklands Coupe

This is a critical component, without which your twin Turbo Arnage, Azure or Brooklands Coupe will no longer run smoothly. Bentley no longer supply this specially made ignition coil, so we commissioned our own batch for the Prestige Parts® range. If you need anything for Rolls-Royce and Bentley ignition - we've got it.

RUBBER STOP, WINDOW LIFT (UB2495-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I-III & Bentley S1-3

These rubber parts are critical to the smooth functioning of your electric window motor, but all too often thay have disintegrated due to age. Long unavailable, these items have been reintroduced via the Prestige Parts® range.

MOUNT RUBBER WINDOW MOTOR (UB2285-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I-III & Bentley S1-3

These rubber parts are critical to the smooth functioning of your electric window motor, but all too often thay have disintegrated due to age. Long unavailable, these items have been reintroduced via the Prestige Parts® range.

FUEL FILTER & SEAL KIT (F86423KIT2-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I-III & Bentley S1-3

Remember, we do the boring stuff too. In this case it's a kit of parts to replace the gauze fuel filters. The seals have been manufactured from certificated Viton-B, which resists all concentrations of ethanol.

PILLAR LAMP LENS KIT WITH SEALS (UD2161LENSKT-X)

Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I-III & Bentley S1-3 (where fitted)

The "Marchall" lamp we manufactured these lenses for was not fitted to many cars and is now pretty rare. Most of the original lenses are faded or cracked, so we've made perfect replacements. We're also working on making the rest of the lamp too!

BRAKE RESERVOIR FLOAT (UR18259-X) - Expected July / August 2022

Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, Silver Shadow II, Silver Wraith II  & Corniche; Bentley T1 & T2

Previously unavailable, if your reservoir float leaked you were condemned to an erroneous brake level warning light glowing on your dashboard! We've designed the magnet and had the casing 3D printed in one piece (so it can't leak again).

CYLINDER HEAD GASKET (07V103147.01-X) - Expected July 2022

All models fitted with the Rolls-Royce V8 engine from 1959-2002.

Nearly four years in development, the wait is over. We've upgraded the original design to create a gasket that is suitable for older engines, but robust enogh to cope with the 400BHP output of later engines. This is not a cheap replacement, but an Original Equipment standard cylinder head gasket with an investment budget to suit. This is one we're really proud of.

TRACK ROD, RH (UR27220-X)

All Rolls-Royce and Bentley models from 1982-1998 (excluding Arnage & Silver Seraph)

This is a complex and involved safety critical product, and showcases our attention to detail. Project managed by our ex-Maclaren Quality Assurance Director, every sub component is drawn, certificated and (where necessary) batch marked, with the whole assembly dimensionally checked to within 0.001" on a CMM (Component Measuring Machine). We've made 1,000 of these, so we aren't playing!

AIR INTAKE GRILLE (DRIVER'S) (RH12590/1-X)

All Rolls-Royce and Bentley models from 1982-1998 (excluding Arnage & Silver Seraph)

We're yet to see one of these cars without at least some breakage on one of these air intake grilles. They've been unavailable for some time, so we have used the latest Computer Aided Design (CAD) to develop vacuum moulding tools.

AIR INTAKE GRILLE (PASSENGER'S) (RH12592/3-X)

All Rolls-Royce and Bentley models from 1982-1998 (excluding Arnage & Silver Seraph)

We're yet to see one of these cars without at least some breakage on one of these air intake grilles. They've been unavailable for some time, so we have used the latest Computer Aided Design (CAD) to develop vacuum moulding tools.
