Rolls-Royce sales flying

2010-07-09 10:12
Remember when the word “austerity” was freely bandied about while the world suffered the effects of a global economic slump? Those days appear to be over, as Rolls-Royce can attest - the luxury car maker on Thursday reported record production levels driven by “unprecedented demand.”

Customer demand, fuelled mainly by orders from China, has driven the record production at the carmaker’s Goodwood plant.

Fifteen cars a day are currently being built and more than 300 cars were built in June, the company said, record figures on both scores.

The company reports that global sales in June were up more than fourfold while the first half of the year saw sales increase by close to 200% over 2009.

And if you’re planning to sneak in an order, be patient - all cars are sold out until September, or October if you have your heart set on the big-daddy Phantom.
