In 2017, the company had only elapsed 3362 units.

These figures confirm that the luxury sector defies an automotive market under pressure, particularly in Europe with the disaffection that plagued the diesel as well as the uncertainties of the Brexit.

The constructor of choice on the high british company stresses that its growth is due in large part to the success of Phantom, the new model has begun to be delivered beginning 2018. The model Ghost, continues its the most sold of the brand.

His models are among the most expensive in the world, and Rolls-Royce also offers custom cars and an SUV, the Cullinan.


“2018 was a record year for Rolls-Royce (…) We have reached a remarkable level and I am confident that this spells an even greater success in 2019”, welcomes the German Torsten Müller-Ötvös, ceo of Rolls-Royce.

The manufacturer further explains that he now employs more than 2000 people on its site in Goodwood, in the south-east of England.

Founded at the beginning of the Twentieth century, Rolls-Royce was bought in 1998 by the German BMW. The british manufacturer was formerly part of the same group as the industrial conglomerate of the same name, specializing in aircraft engines, but the two entities have been separated in the early 1970s, and are now companies completely independent.
