Rolls Royce Rolls Into Thailand
And we do mean one car. Rolls Royce Motor Cars managed to sell its first model in Thailand, a Phantom Extended Wheelbase. The event caused so much fuzz in all departments of the company, that even a press release was issued to mark the event.
Rolls-Royce Asia-Pacific Regional Director, Colin Kelly, put himself in charge of the "handover ceremony," an ancient druid singing and dancing ritual (just kidding), at the end of which Dr Nikorn Hongsrisook became the "proud owner of the first Phantom in Thailand.”
During the short breaks between hand shaking, back rubbing and the above mentioned singing and dancing, Colin Kelly had this to say: ”It is a great pleasure to be able to deliver this first car into Thailand to such an appreciative customer and automotive enthusiast. We look forward to being able to deliver more Rolls-Royce cars to customers in Thailand, in a market where we believe there is growing demand for ultra-luxury motor cars.”
We can't help to ask ourselves if the Thai guy paid an extra something to benefit from this royal treatment. The new single-first-best owner of the Phantom may have done it in order to buy himself some more publicity, considering that no one we talked to knows who he is.
He should have come to us. As you see, we put some time and effort into promoting the good old doctor. So if you google his name now, there will be four references found to his name, instead of three. Including the Rolls Royce press release.
And we did it for free, too!
