Held at the magnificent French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana, this prestigious week-long event attracts Rolls-Royce owners and enthusiasts from across the country. This year’s Meet culminates on Saturday, June 24th, with the RROC’s World of Luxury Showcase and official launch of its new book, Strive for Perfection: A Journey into Design, Luxury & Quality.

Clean and unencumbered, the innate poetry of their form shines forth, revealing their elegant simplicity and superb craftsmanship. We strive daily to help make people’s lives cleaner, healthier, less complicated, and more beautiful."
World of Luxury Showcase
Held on the French Lick Springs Hotel’s Valley Links Driving Range, alongside an array of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars, the day-long World of Luxury Showcase offers an impressive yet relaxed setting in which TOTO may present the NEOREST 750H and new NEOREST AC intelligent toilets to RROC members.
Winners of the iF International Award for Design Excellence, the NEOREST 750H and new NEOREST AC intelligent toilets offer the People-First Innovations that luxury consumers have come to expect from TOTO—intuitive sensor operation with auto open/close and auto flush; integrated personal cleansing system with warm, aerated water, warm air dryer, and heated seat; in-bowl catalytic deodorizer; energy- and water-saving features; eWater+ and Actilight advanced cleansing technologies; and elegant high-design aesthetics.
Strive for Perfection: A Journey into Design, Luxury & Quality
TOTO and its leadership in innovation, technology, design and luxury in the U.S. are profiled in a four-page editorial in Strive for Perfection—A Journey into Design, Luxury & Quality—the RROC’s new 232-page hardback book. Written by a select group of motoring experts, this limited-edition publication explores the living legacy of the world’s most famous luxury automobile, Rolls-Royce. Showcasing models old and new, the book celebrates the company’s unceasing pursuit of excellence—an ethos that has earned Rolls-Royce the status of “best car in the world.” Produced by London-based publisher St. James’s House in collaboration with the RROC, the new book will be officially presented to the Club at a gala Champaign reception, against a backdrop of the Meet’s finest, award-winning Rolls-Royce motorcars.
