This makes us the most successful Rolls-Royce Dealer in the World, a position we are very proud to be in and one we respect, by seeking continuous improvement in every aspect of the business. It is a great accomplishment to continuously perform to the standards that we achieve and highlights the UAE’s appetite for exclusivity and individuality in the ultra-luxury segment. We are grateful for the continuous support we receive from our many loyal and new customers.”

“Our results are proof that the investments our owners made in people and facilities, by having the world’s largest showroom and a dedicated Aftersales facility, our extensive investments in the training of staff and having the most sophisticated tooling and diagnostic equipment, were sound decisions and an in-depth understanding of the requirements of the Abu Dhabi Market. Given our successful track record over the past years, considering we have the best people, a fantastic product range and the best infrastructure in place gives me confidence that we will deliver further growth for the brand over the coming years. We will continuously build on this “Culture of Excellence” which is synonymous with Abu Dhabi Motors and one which the Rolls Royce brand demands.”
