Rolls-Royce said on Monday that its annual sales performance, up 8% year-on-year, was the first time in the company's 118-year history that sales have exceeded 6,000 in a single 12-month period.
The BMW subsidiary said the value of Bespoke commissions had also hit record levels, with demand for all Rolls Royce models said to have remained "exceptionally strong" and advance orders being secured "far into 2023".
Rolls-Royce also noted that in 2022, sales growth was seen in almost all regions, with particularly strong year-on-year growth witnessed in the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, the USA, and Europe.
Chief executive Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: "As we mark the 20th anniversary of the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, these results confirm Rolls‑Royce Motor Cars as a great British success story.
"Our business is built on extremely strong foundations, and we have secured advance orders stretching far into 2023. And while we are not immune to global challenges and economic headwinds, thanks to our balanced worldwide sales strategy, we are cautiously optimistic that 2023 will be a strong year for Rolls‑Royce."
As of 1355 GMT, BMW shares were up 0.32% at €89.82 each.
