The Umm Al Nar area of Abu Dabi has seen the opening of the largest Rolls Royce showroom in the World. The new facility was unveiled by Torsten Muller-Otvos, CEO of Rolls Royce Motor Cars.
The new 900 square metre showroom provides space for displaying five Rolls Royce motor cars, a coffee bar and a customer configuration lounge including colour and trim samples. The showroom is also directly linked to a new dedicated Rolls Royce service facility.
Torsten Muller-Otvos said, "The showroom opening in Abu Dhabi represents one of a line of new and expanded Rolls Royce showrooms which have been unveiled throughout the Gulf region in the last 18 months. These investments underline the continuing confidence that the company sees in the Rolls-Royce brand across the Middle East." He continued, "The Middle East region continues to be an important driver in the global growth of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Last year the region contributed over 15% of our global sales. Abu Dhabi is no exception and continues to demonstrate remarkable year on year growth."
The occasion was also marked by the unveiling of a Spirit of Ecstasy Centenary Collection Phantom Drophead Coupe. One of a collection of 100 highly bespoke Rolls Royce Phantom models, the cars were built to mark the Centenary of the Spirit of Ecstasy, 100 years since the world's most instantly recognisable bonnet figurine was first fitted to Rolls Royce cars. The beautiful Collection cars were designed with a suite of bespoke design details including a special white-on-black double-R badge, Spirit of Ecstasy inspired coachlines and an inscribed figurine bathed in white light emanating from its base. Discerning collectors across the world, especially in the Middle East, have shown great interest in these unique cars.Published 29 March 2011
