Rolls-Royce has vamped production up to 2003 levels to meet the high demand (especially over in China) for its Phantom and Ghost automobiles. The company is currently building 15 cars a day out of its Chichester, West Sussex, production facilities in the United Kingdom; double the number of cars it was producing in 2009. Like most companies, Rolls-Royce was hit hard in the recession but it refused to cut its plant staff. That decision is paying off for the luxury car manufacturer now.
In other Rolls-Royce news, the company says it will be offering an optional custom picnic set encased in a leather chest that can be stowed in the car's trunk. The four-person set will be limited to 100 customers and will include everything required to enjoy a nice meal on the side of the road including utensils, plates, crystal glasses, and napkins.
