North American Rolls-Royce Sales Rise See The Full Report Here On TACH

    DETROIT, Jan. 9 Sales of Rolls-Royce motor cars in North
America in 2000 rose by more than four percent.

Watch the complete presentation here on TACH.

    The introduction of the Corniche convertible, and the enhancements to the
Silver Seraph, plus the launch of the Park Ward saloon combined to deliver
sales of 248 cars, an increase of 4.6 percent over the 1999 total of 237 cars.

    The President of Rolls-Royce & Bentley Motor Cars, Inc., Alasdair Stewart
said:  "Rolls-Royce enthusiasts responded very well to the new Corniche
convertible, and the higher specification of the Silver Seraph saloon enhanced
its appeal considerably.  The Park Ward, which was first shown at the Geneva
Auto Salon in March 2000 is built to specific order and is sold to a very
select group of Rolls-Royce buyers."

    Corniche deliveries began well into the second quarter and 88 cars were
sold in 2000.  Silver Seraph sales totaled 147 cars and the new Park Ward,
with its extended wheelbase, is just beginning deliveries with five cars
delivered to North American customers.

    Stewart added: "North American Rolls-Royce buyers continue to be very
positive about the marque, and the Corniche helped to strengthen confidence in
the Crewe-built range of Rolls-Royce motor cars."

    The Company is confident that interest in the Crewe-built Rolls-Royce
models will be sustained and looks forward to increased sales in 2001.
