Rolls-Royce Motor Cars sold a record number of cars last year, breaking through the 4,000 mark for the first time in its 111-year history. The luxury car maker sold 4,063 cars, up 12% on last year, and marking the fifth consecutive year of record sales. Sales in the US increased by almost a third, by 40% in Europe and in the Middle East by 20%, the firm said. About 80% of its buyers were entrepreneurs and business owners, with the remainder celebrities. The firm is also currently "mulling" creating a four-wheel drive SUV vehicle in 2015.
