Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoe said that he sees the company achieving record sales this year and is optimistic on growth for the next year.

“I have not seen any reluctance to consider buying a Rolls-Royce,” Mueller-Oetvoes told Reuters. “I do not feel that sentiment is deteriorating in the luxury market.”

The United States is Rolls-Royce’s largest market. It sold about a third of its cars in the U.S. last year – however, Mueller-Oetvoes said he sees bigger growth potential in Asia, and especially in China.

Last year, Rolls-Royce delivered 2,711 units – up 171 percent compared to the year before.
