and many modern Rolls-Royce cars.

“The Centenary Alpine Trial has clearly embraced the Spirit of Adventure that is synonymous with Rolls-Royce, and I applaud the participants for their resolve and determination,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Rolls-Royce CEO.

The 2013 event followed the same route as the original and even finished on the same day – June 29 – and in the same place in Vienna.

At the end of the event, Archduke Leopold Salvator presented Rolls-Royce with one of the trophies from the original 1913 event.
