UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND DRIVES RECORD PRODUCTION AT ROLLS-ROYCE
8 July 2010

Rolls-Royce   Rolls-Royce Motor Cars announced today that continuing strong customer demand for all models has resulted in record production at the company's manufacturing plant in Goodwood, West Sussex, England.

The company is currently building 15 cars a day, including Phantom and Ghost models, with over 300 cars built in June - both record numbers since the company launched in January 2003. All models are sold out until at least September, with Phantom saloons sold out until October.

Sales in June increased more than fourfold worldwide and in the first half of the year were up by almost 200%, compared with the same periods in 2009. Substantial growth was seen in all regions, with a particularly strong performance in the APAC region, especially China.
