    Rolls Royce has reported its highest annual sales in its 107-year history for 2011.

    The UK-based car company was successful at home, but its foreign market has grown considerably.

    Customers in the Middle East are buying up the ultra-luxurious cars, and Saudi Arabia is the company's fifth largest market, followed by the United Arab Emirates at fourth.
