- The Rolls Royce Silver Ghost name refers both to a car model and one specific car from that series.
- Originally named the "40/50 h.p."
- The chassis was first made at Royce's Manchester works, with production moving to Derby in July 1908. Also between 1921 and 1926, in Springfield, Massachusetts.
- Chassis no. 60551, registered AX 201, was the car that was originally given the name "Silver Ghost." Other 40/50 hp cars were also given names, but the Silver Ghost title was taken up by the press, and soon all 40/50s were called by the name, a fact not officially recognised by Rolls-Royce until 1925, when the Phantom range was launched.
- The Silver Ghost was the origin of Rolls-Royce's claim of making the "best car in the world" – a phrase coined not by themselves, but by the prestigious publication Autocar in 1907.
