Rolls-Royce's strong performance last year was more than matched by rival ultra-luxury car company Bentley, which sold 7,003 cars during 2011, marking a 37% rise that returned it to pre-recession levels.
Rolls-Royce's £165,000 Ghost model, which is smaller and less ostentatious than the £235,000 Phantom models, has been the main driving force for sales.
The market for Rolls-Royce models grew particularly fast in Germany and Russia, where sales more than doubled last year.
Sales in the Asia Pacific region rose 47%. In the UK they were up 30%, while in the Middle East they rose 23%.
The US and Chinese markets are the most important ones for the company, though it has not released detailed figures about how many cars it sold in individual markets.

Don't see anything wrong with it. Not all people are poor, not all people can't afford anything and if the people, who actually have money, spend it to buy such cars, in the end it creates more jobs. Which means that at least a few of the poor losers will get a bit out of the dump they're in.
I still don't understand all the crying about money and recession and being poor. Everybody could make money, if they wouldn't sit on their fat asses, thinking their 9 to 5 job is enough and crying about it on ATS is more fun than using their creative minds to make something out of their lives.
I think some of those cryers should visit a real poor country, meet really poor people and see how they live (and even though we think they're poor and have a miserable life, some of them are actually quite happy with what they have)
