If you have any doubt that the global economy is gaining legs, know that Rolls-Royce, which announced record sales for the first half of 2014 (and noted that it is the leader in the segment of “motor cars selling above Euros 200,000 net”), confirmed that it is developing a new Rolls, another to put in the proverbial multi-car garage, joining the Phantom, Ghost and Wraith in its lineup. Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, described it by saying, “We are currently developing an exciting and thoroughly contemporary interpretation of a pinnacle drophead tourer which will introduce even more discerning men and women to Rolls-Royce ownership.”
The new car is to be available in 2016.
Incidentally, in 2013 Rolls-Royce had record-setting global sales.
It delivered 3,630 vehicles.
Well, they are, after all, hand-crafted.
