LUXURY car firm Rolls-Royce has revealed plans to create 100 new jobs after reporting a fourth consecutive year of record sales.

More than 3,630 cars were delivered to customers in 2013, the highest in the marque's history, with sales growth reported across several regions worldwide.

The biggest increases were in the Middle-East, which saw a 17 per cent rise, and China, where sales increased by 11 per cent.

Torsten Muller-Otvos, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars' chief executive, said: “My aim at the beginning of last year was sustained growth and another sales record.

“We have reported a strong year and have maintained our position at the pinnacle of the super-luxury market.”

The company added 2013 was another record year for requests to personalise models, ranging from the inclusion of jewellery boxes and fridges to a family crest.

Rolls-Royce runs a training centre in Newcastle, which offers apprenticeships in mechanical, fabrication, electrical and general engineering.
