Rolls-Royce Might Add More Than 100 New Jobs at the Goodwood Plant image

Rolls-Royce might add more than 100 new jobs as it reached record sales in the past three years.

Most of the new jobs are to be based at the automaker’s site in Goodwood, West Sussex, in public relations, sales and marketing, and the rest in manufacturing and engineering directly connected with the production of the new Wraith model.

“I am delighted to announce this recruitment programme, made possible by the continuing success of our company. Our cautious optimism at the beginning of the year has proven to be correct and our goal for the business remains the same: consistent, sustainable growth,” said Torsten Muller-Otvos, chief executive of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Last month the automaker introduced the Wraith to Malaysia, where it is sold for RM1.3 million. The Rolls-Royce Wraith is the company’s most powerful model ever and it was officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, a few months ago, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The Rolls-Royce Wraith is powered by a 6.6 liter V12 engine, which is producing a total output of 624 HP and it has a peak torque of 800 Nm. The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint is done in 4.4 seconds and prices for the model start at 300,000 USD, in other markets.
