Rolls-Royce Celebrates 10 Years of Phantom Production

On 1 January 2003, the first Rolls-Royce Phantom was presented to its delighted customer at one minute past midnight.

The production of Phantom was initially one car per day, rising to three by the end of 2003. Today, the Rolls-Royce two model family (Phantom and Ghost) has six models and company’s craftsmen and women hand-build up to 20 cars each day.

Starting with a workforce of less than 400 in 2003, there are now more than 1400 people employed at the Goodwood-based manufacturing plant and head office.

“Rolls-Royce is a great British manufacturing success story and I am very proud to celebrate 10 Years of Excellence”, said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
