Rolls-Royce car sales for the first six months of 2014 have raced to a record half-year total, rising by 33 percent globally from the same period from January to June in 2013.

Sales in Europe have been especially fruitful, rising more than 60 percent over the same timeframe, while strong growth was also seen in emerging markets: Asia Pacific sales rising nearly 40 percent and Middle East sales increasing by more than 30 percent.

In the key US and Chinese markets, Rolls-Royce achieved double digit growth while sales doubled in Germany.

"This is an excellent half-year result and demonstrates the continued confidence that our customers have in our company and our fine cars,” said Rolls-Royce Motor Cars chief executive, Torsten Muller-Otvos.

"We are on target for another record year in 2014."
