ROLLS-ROYCE MIDDLE EAST DEALERS MEET TO DISCUSS EXPANSION PLANS

02.11.2009 / Goodwood-Doha-Cairo /

Representatives from Rolls-Royce dealerships in the Middle East region convened in Doha, Qatar, this week to discuss business development and launch preparations for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars new model, the Ghost.

General Managers and Brand Managers from the eight dealerships across six countries attended the conference which was led by the Director of Sales and Marketing for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Jolyon Nash, and Peter Schoppmann, Regional Director for the Middle East.

Jolyon Nash said, “The Middle East region has always been a significant driver of growth for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The regional dealer conference provides us with the opportunity to engage our dealers in a positive discussion about the future growth of the brand.” He continued: “It is very rewarding to see the investment of the dealerships into the business success of Rolls-Royce in the region, with every dealer opening a new or enlarged showroom by mid of 2010.”

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars new model, the Ghost, was recently unveiled in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for the first time in the region. The Ghost is scheduled to make appearances across the Middle East region in the coming two months and first cars will be handed over to customers beginning of 2010.

Rolls-Royce has 83 dealerships around the world, including eight showrooms in the Middle East region: in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Doha, Jeddah, Kuwait City, Manama, Muscat and Riyadh.
From quarter four 2009, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will offer five models: Ghost, Phantom, Phantom Extended Wheelbase, Phantom Drophead Coupé and Phantom Coupé. The Rolls-Royce Phantom range of cars is powered by a naturally aspirated direct injection 6.75 litre V12 engine that produces 453 bhp at 5350 rpm (338 kW/460 PS) and 720 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm.
