Behind the scenes at Rolls-Royce

Leon Poultney

Rolls-Royce is a British success story that just keeps on leaping from strength-to-strength. Just 350 staff were employed in 2003 and now the Goodwood plant just outside of Chichester boasts 1,400 busy bodies filling the Sir Nicholas Grimshaw-designed building. The products are pretty impressive too, with an average price tag of over £400,000; they are the epitome of luxury.

AOL Cars went behind the scenes on an exclusive tour of the eye-opening facility to get an idea of why it takes almost five months for a brand new Rolls-Royce to roll off the productions line.
