Luxury-loving Hong Kong has been revealed as the Rolls-Royce capital of the world – boasting the highest number of the super-luxury cars in the world.

The city's wealthy elite are known for their love of status symbols, and Rolls-Royces are the ultimate symbol of wealth and success.

According to the latest figures, Hong Kong is home to more than 1,000 Rolls-Royces – the highest number in the world, with one car alone costing a staggering US$12 million.

The cars, which are made in Britain, are coveted by the city's wealthy elite, who use them as a status symbol.

The city's elite are also keen to show off their wealth and the cars are often seen cruising around the city's streets, with chauffeurs at the wheel.

The cars are also popular at luxury events, such as weddings and dinner parties, where they are often seen parked outside the venue.

For those who can afford it, Rolls-Royces are a symbol of success and extravagance – but for those on a budget, there is also a cheaper option.

Renting a Rolls-Royce for the day is becoming increasingly popular in Hong Kong, with companies offering chauffeured cars for around US$1,000 per day.

But with one car alone costing US$12 million, it is clear that Hong Kong's wealthy elite are serious about their love of luxury.
