The new 900 square metre showroom, which is located in the Umm Al Nar area of the city, offers display space for five Rolls-Royce motor cars, and also includes a coffee bar and a customer configuration lounge.

Unveiling the new state-of-the-art facility, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO ofRolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: "Last year the Middle East contributed over 15% of our global sales and Abhu Dhabi is no exception.

"The showroom opening in Abu Dhabi represents one of a line of new and expanded Rolls Royce showrooms which have been unveiled throughout the Gulf region in the last 18 months."

The new showroom is expected to further boost the manufacturer's business in the region.

To mark the opening of the new facility, Rolls-Royce launched a Spirit of Ecstasy Centenary Collection Phantom Drophead Coupé, which forms part of a collection of 100 highly bespoke Rolls-Royce Phantom models.

The new models come with a special white-on-black double-R badge.
