Chichester: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars suspends shipping its luxury cars to Russia in the wake of the Ukraine war

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars – whose global Home is at Chichester – today confirmed that given the current circumstances, it was not shipping cars to Russia for the time being.

The luxury car manufacturer, who last year reported the best sales in the marque’s history, has clients around the world who will wait for up to a year to take delivery of a new R-R.

Every one of those cars is manufactured at its plant at Goodwood – where it has plans for a multi million pound expansion.
