Rolls-Royce opens dealership in Moscow
Moscow, Russia – Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is announced the opening of a dealership situated at number 1 Red Square, Moscow. Housed within a converted museum, the premises sit next door to the Kremlin and opposite St. Basils Cathedral on the north side of the square.
The Moscow dealership is displaying the new Phantom and a Rolls that once belonged to Lenin, which is on special loan. This car had bespoke tracks fitted during the winter months to cope with the heavy Moscow snowfall.
Speaking before the official opening, Tony Gott, Chairman and CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said; “We are delighted to be in Moscow to celebrate the opening of the latest of our worldwide dealer operations. There is a heightened sense of excitement to be here today at such a prominent address which stands as such a landmark at the centre of Russian society. A number of Phantoms have already been delivered in the region despite the lack of an official presence over the last twelve months, which is an encouraging sign for the future.”
