The luxury car manufacturer Rolls-Royce has just released figures showing that 2013 was a record breaking year for the company. The two biggest growth markets were in China and the Middle East.
Rolls-Royce sold 3,630 vehicles in 2013, which is according to the company, is the fourth consecutive year that the prestigious car maker has had a record annual sales year. Rolls-Royce globally sells in just over 40 countries but the growth of sales of 17 percent in the Middle East and 11 percent in China were the best in 2013. The CEO of Rolls-Royce, Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, commented that "We have reported a strong year and have maintained our position at the pinnacle of the super-luxury market." In 2012 the company, owned by BMW, sold 3575 luxury cars. Mueller-Oetvoes added that the vast majority of Rolls-Royce customers were “people who are running their own businesses.” He also said that in the Asian market the average age of customers were in their forties.
And it isn’t just the standard luxury Rolls-Royce that people are buying, the extras and add-ons’ are doing big business. “People are now asking for fridges, safes, jewelry boxes, cigar holders and probably the biggest hit is the star covered ceiling in the car,” commented Mueller-Oetvoes.
