Demand Grows For Rolls-Royce


    Rolls-Royce is seeing a rise in demand for its cars. The company says 1,968 cars were sold in the first half of this year compared to 1,475 in the same period last year. It believes the 33 per cent rise in sales reflect both the quality and luxury of the cars and also the rising number of billionaires worldwide. A Forbes survey says there are 1,645 billionaires in the world, 219 more than a year ago. The British-made cars start at $263,000 and many buyers choose custom options that can easily double the price.
