Tom Moorehead, who owns BMW and Mini dealerships in Sterling, Va., has become the first African American to acquire a Rolls-Royce franchise, according to Autonews.com.

"Moorehead acquired Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Sterling on Dec. 30," the website said. "That makes him the operator of one of 35 U.S. Rolls-Royce dealerships...The store had been operated by Euro Motorcars Inc. in Bethesda, Md."

Moorehead, chairman of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers, believes the dealership will sell as many as 40 new and 10 used cars each month.
