Head of Rolls-Royce, Torsten Muller-Otvos, thinks that the increasing number of millionaires is a good thing for the company, since sales will increase in the next period.
Torsten added that the company has no competition and the customer car parks are impressive, awaiting the customers. In 2011 Rolls-Royce increased its sales by 30.5% to 3,538 units, reaching a sales record for the first time in the company’s 107 years.
“2011 was more than an excellent year for us, it was an historic excellent year for us since we have sold more cars than ever in the 107 history of Rolls Royce Motor Cars. We have seen growth gone wild in all our markets but particularly in the Asia markets and also in the United States, both out biggest markets worldwide,” declared Torsten.
He also reminded journalists that he is against low cost vehicles and that it would be difficult for Rolls Royce to integrate a range of SUV since the company’s clients are extremely demanding. Although the company has build a cheaper version of the Ghost, it is still more expensive than the most feature- and power-packed models from mass-market luxury brands. At a base price of $245,000, the Ghost doesn’t cost as much as Rolls-Royce’s flagship sedan, the Phantom ($380,000).
