Royal Redrugus (RR for short) is a Staynish brand and manufacturer of luxury supercars, sports cars and SUVs based in Monefuse, Staynes.

Erwan Nasserethe founded Automobile Redrugus in 1896 to compete with other local automobile firms that had begun manufacturing early automobile models with petrol engines. It would later be granted the honourific title "Royal" in 1903 after being adopted as the primary line of automobiles used by the Morstaybishlian Royal Family.

Royal Redrugus grew rapidly into the luxury supercar market in the 1930s to 1950s, and in 1966 the company produced the Frosili sports coupé, which established rear mid-engine, rear wheel drive as the standard layout for high-performance cars of the era. Sales plunged in the wake of the Auroran Imperial War. The firm's ownership changed three times after 1975, including a bankruptcy in 1979. It has since recovered, relocating its headquarters twice in the 90s. It's now based in Monefuse, a small city on the very-southern Corstania Coast, Staynes. Its current CEO is Matthäus Toller since 2017.
