UK-based luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is upbeat on its sales prospects in Thailand with the rising number of Thai millionaires.

Hal Serudin, corporate communication manager for Asia-Pacific, said Rolls-Royce's customers will be ultra high-net-worth individuals (UHNWIs) with assets over US$30 million.

He cited the Wealth Report by Knight Frank, which said that Thai UHNWIs grew by 8.8% to 620 people last year. Knight Frank forecast Thai UHNWIs will surge by 70% to 1,050 people by 2026.
