Published Date: 10th Jul 2014
Rolls-Royce have announced global half-year record sales for 2014
Rolls-Royce have said that it has been a record for half-year sales, selling 33 per cent more cars around the world in the first half of this 2014, when compared to last year.
The iconic British car maker said that it sold more cars in every one of its countries but Europe and Asia Pacific played a bigger part than the rest. Vehicle sales in these parts of the world were up by a massive 60 percent and 40 percent.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “This is an excellent half-year result and demonstrates the continued confidence that our customers have in our company and our fine cars.” He went on to say, “Rolls-Royce Motor Cars continues to deliver as the world’s foremost super?luxury car manufacturer and we are on target for another record year in 2014.”
“The new Rolls-Royce Wraith has been a stunning success in the super-luxury segment, setting new modern style and technology leadership benchmarks. Wraith complements the pinnacle performance of the incomparable Rolls-Royce Phantom and the new Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II,” said Müller-Ötvös.
Rolls-Royce thinks the success is down to the new model the Wraith coupe, which also shares many of its parts with the desirable Ghost Series II, which will be introduced later this year. The Rolls-Royce Phantom is reportedly still doing very well and demand for premium Rolls-Royce models is at new record levels.
