Charles Rolls went to Paris in 1896 and with his father's money bought a 3 3/4 hp Peugeot Phaeton - this is reputedly the first ever car based at Cambridge. Charles Rolls soon earned the nicknames of "Dirty Rolls" and "Petrolls" because of his "hands on" approach. He graduated in January 1898 and gained a Class II Ordinary Bachelor of Arts degree by Special Examination in Mechanism and Applied Science, Charles Rolls also further gained a Master of Arts in 1902.
