With these historic results, Rolls-Royce continues to make a meaningful contribution to the overall performance of its shareholder, BMW Group.
Commenting on the results, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: "This performance is of an altogether different magnitude to any previous year's sales success. While we celebrate these remarkable results we are conscious of our key promise to our customers, to keep our brand rare and exclusive.
