You might think that with Covid and Brexit that the shine might have come off Rolls-Royce sales. But not a bit of it. For it seems that customers, especially in China, the US and the Asia Pacific regions cannot get enough of this thoroughly British product.

In fact for the first quarter of 2021 the company, based in Goodwood, has registered the highest sales in its entire 116 year history. Between 1st January and 31st March the company delivered 1380 cars to customers, up 62% on the same period in 2020.

Seems the highest demand was for the new Ghost and Cullinan models with order books solid until the second half of 2021. Bespoke commissions are also at record levels according to Chief Executive Officer Torsten Müller-Ötvös.
