Prestigious carmaker Rolls-Royce has announced that British comedian and actor Rowan Atkinson will be in attendance at the company’s stand during the Frankfurt Motor Show press preview on Tuesday September 13th .

Atkinson, who is starring in the upcoming film, Johnny English Reborn (a spy spoof based on the original Johnny English, which in turn was inspired by a run of British TV Barclaycard ads), will be joined by his co-star of the film, a specially equipped Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe – named ‘Royce’.

In addition, renowned photographer Rankin and his wife, Tuuli, will also be in attendance, Rankin talking with Rolls CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös as well as presenting 100 of his latest portraits, inspired by the Spirit of Ectasy. Approximately 10 examples of Rankin’s work will also be on display in the Rolls-Royce lounge .

As for the reasoning behind its high profile press conference this year, an official release from the company declares ‘Stars come as standard at Rolls-Royce, thanks to cars that are as individual as their owner’s fingerprint.’
