I undertood that RR PLC made aircraft engines, not cars as shown on the (single) web page. Too good to be true, perhaps?

My vote - 100% scam. RR cars are a subsidiary of BMW.

The website you linked to is registered to an individual in Liverpool using a Swiss based encrypted email system (Protonmail). A quick check of registration data on the website you gave does not lead one to think it is a BMW deal :) (take website address and put into a search at the domain register (do a "whois" search at https://uk.godaddy.com/)

A legitimate retail bond offer would have vastly more data and reference sites.

One for the FCA and the Action Fraud I think.

The website was set up just over a month ago, hosted (yet again) by GoDaddy, with the domain registered to:

Registrant Contact
Name: Henry Bezoya
Organization:
Mailing Address: 10 Chester Road, Liverpool Liverpool L36 1UW UK
Phone: +44.7593874657
Ext:
Fax:
Fax Ext:
Email:henrybezoya@protonmail.com

The address, a small suburban house, may be viewed on google at https://www.google.co.uk...ton,+Liverpool+L36+1UW/@53.418903,-2.8273708,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x487b1ee88c6fafed:0xe8394264efb7da9!8m2!3d53.4188998!4d-2.8251821

Bezoya was no trace on the FCA register when searched.

There is a corporate bond Rolls-Royce Holdings, 6.75% 30apr2019 issued by Rolls Royce Holdings not by Rolls Royce Motor Cars. Current price (Hargreaves Lansdown) 111.501

I certainly won't be engaging with that website to buy it.

If the guy is a scammer, he isn't doing too well hiding himself, is he?

Failure to provide verifiable identities, addresses and registration details on an online proposition is always a warning sign.....

I clicked on a link out of curiosity on a non finance website. I haven't reported it as such, I am out in east Asia and probably wouldn't be taken seriously? However, if you know what to in such circumstances, feel free to act.
