The UAE and Saudi Arabia were the fourth and fifth biggest markets for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in 2011, the luxury vehicle maker said on Monday.
The company revealed record sales results for 2011 with a total of 3,538 cars sold globally, a 31 percent increase on the 2010 total of 2,711 cars.
The figure represents the best sales result in the company's 107-year history; the previous record of 3,347 cars having been set in 1978 during the Silver Shadow II era.
Sales figures for the Middle East rose by 23 percent in the past year, the company said in a statement, adding that the UAE registered 32 percent growth.
Globally, China and the United States were the most significant individual markets for Rolls-Royce.
"We had an outstanding year in 2011 and we should take a moment to reflect on this Great British success story," said Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
"Our business is in excellent shape. We are developing our dealer network, moving into new markets like South America, expanding our manufacturing operation in West Sussex to meet global demand and have plans to develop our product range."
