The ap­point­ment of a new Rolls-Royce deal­er­ship is al­ways big news, es­pe­cially when it is in a brand new mar­ket.

This past June, Bri­tish Be­spoke Au­to­mo­biles was tapped as the of­fi­cial im­porter-dealer for the Philip­pines.The com­pany will be re­spon­si­ble for Rolls-Royce Mo­tor Cars Manila, with the goal of im­port­ing Phan­tom, Ghost and Wraith mod­els.

The ar­rival of Rolls-Royce in the Philip­pines is a val­i­da­tion of the coun­try as one of Asia’s fastest grow­ing economies.

A new Manila show­room – with a be­spoke lounge and ex­per tly staffed af­ter­sales fa­cil­i­ties – is sched­uled to open early next year, though an in­terim fa­cil­ity will be op­er­a­tional by the four th quar ter of 2013.

An­other first took place in Hanoi with the ap­point­ment of Re­gal Mo­tor Cars Cor­po­ra­tion as the of­fi­cial Rolls-Royce dealer for the city.The move is a timely one, re­flect­ing the com­pany’s Asia Pa­cific plan for sus­tain­able growth on the heels of grow­ing in­ter­est in the Rolls-Royce brand.

A deal­er­ship in Viet­nam has long been on the cards, thanks to its ris­ing econ­omy, the steady growth of lo­cal en­trepreneurs, and thriv­ing ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the crafts­man­ship and at­ten­tion to de­tail that Rolls-Royce is renowned for.

An of­fi­cial show­room for the new Rolls-Royce Mo­tor Cars Hanoi is sched­uled to open in the fourth quar­ter of 2013.

Over in Perth, Rolls-Royce’s ex­pan­sion plans in Aus­tralia con­tin­ued with Barba­gallo’s ap­point­ment as a Rolls-Royce dealer. Founded in 1967, the Barba­gallo Group has an ex­cep­tional track record and ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in au­to­mo­tive lux­ury re­tail­ing.
