Global sales for Rolls-Royce have risen by over 30 per cent in the six months to the end of June 2014, the manufacturer has revealed.
The British firm won't be drawn on specific sales figures for each model in its range, but has reported that its success is down to continued demand for the Phantom, Ghost and Wraith model lines. Last year the company sold 1475 cars in the first six months of the year, and a 30 per cent rise would put this year's half-year figure at around 1915 vehicles.
Although growth was strong in all regions in the first half of the year, European demand was particularly strong, with a 60 per cent rise in sales. The US and Chinese markets also experienced double-digit increases, while sales in the Asia Pacific region were up by 40 per cent, and those in the Middle East up by 30 per cent.
One of the strongest-performing countries for the brand was Germany, where sales have doubled.
The firm says that alongside its standard sales, the number of cars being modified through its bespoke service is also running at record levels.
