Rolls-Royce working to meet “unprecedented demand”

Goodwood, England – Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced that its manufacturing plant at Goodwood is working at full production to meet unprecedented customer demand, with the introduction of additional shifts and extended working hours that will continue throughout the remainder of the year.

By the end of September 2007, the company had retailed 22 per cent more cars than in the same period in 2006. Orders for the four-door models stretch into 2008, and orders for the new Phantom Drophead Coupe extended throughout all of next year.

The company is also planning future development at Goodwood for a new two-door, four-seater model, based on the concept 101EX car, which it announced last week. The new model will be launched in 2008, with production scheduled to begin next summer.
