Rolls-Royce expands dealer network into Austria
Next year, the Rolls-Royce lineup will grow to three cars -- Phantom, Phantom LWB, and the as-yet-unnamed convertible based on the stunning 100EX concept. In addition to those three machines, the company announced last month in Paris that a second sedan line will arrive in the next four years. Demand for the marque will only increase, and it should be in a good position to handle it with the growing dealer network.

ROLLS-ROYCE COMES TO AUSTRIA
It has been announced today that Karner&Grossegger GmbH Co. KG in Vienna will represent Rolls-Royce in Austria. A new sales and service facility will be opened officially in the first half of 2007, although customers can already see the Rolls-Royce Phantom at the Karner&Grossegger showroom.
Axel Obermüller, Managing Director of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Europe and the Middle East, said: "We see Austria as an important location in the heart of a growing European market for Rolls-Royce. We receive an increasing number of enquiries from Austrian customers every month. Karner&Grossegger has many years of experience in the luxury car segment and so is uniquely positioned to provide a service to these discerning individuals."
In 2007, Rolls-Royce will have a three model line-up, with the new convertible set to join the two Phantom models. The Phantom remains the best-selling super luxury car in the world, with sales in 2005 at a 15 year high.
The addition of this new partner in Vienna, which will sell Rolls-Royce exclusively in Austria, brings the total worldwide number of Rolls-Royce dealers to 75, 18 of which are in Continental Europe.
