Rolls-Royce to enter South America

Rolls-Royce has announced plans to offer its luxury car models in the South American market.

The expansion plans will mark the firm's first foray into the market.

According to the carmaker, Brazil and Chile could gain new dealerships in March next year.

Discussing the proposals, Rolls chief executive Torsten Muller-Otvos stated: "I am delighted to announce our plans for entry into the South American market. Brazil and Chile have seen impressive economic growth, with an increasing demand from discerning customers for pinnacle luxury products.

"Rolls-Royce is growing very successfully in a number of fast-growing emerging markets and it is therefore appropriate that we have a strong presence in Brazil and Chile."

In recent times, the company's Phantom and Ghost models have enjoyed strong demand, the firm revealed.

Whether they plan to purchase a new vehicle for use at home or for travelling abroad, car insurance is likely to prove beneficial to buyers.
