BMW enjoyed record sales last year as the world's largest luxury carmaker said it expected the boom in upmarket motors to continue this year.
The German automotive group behind the Mini, BMW and Rolls-Royce marques said worldwide sales rose 14% to 1.67m vehicles in 2011, spurred by strong demand from China and a resurgent United States. The announcement came on the opening of the Detroit Motor Show, the industry's gala event, and in the wake of confirmation that Rolls-Royce had posted the most successful 12-month sales period in its 107-year history.
