Bentley on Target for Record Breaking Year

The stunning Bentley Continental GT V8 S Coupe

British car manufacturers Bentley have announced they are on track for a record breaking year of car sales with new car deliveries increasing by 19% to 7,786 cars sold up from 6,516 in 2013. The luxury car maker’s four key regions Americas, China, Europe including the UK, and Middle East all saw strong growth, with America retaining its position as Bentley’s number one market. Growth in the UK has also increased by 5%, with Europe seeing an overall increase of 7%.

Speaking of the results Bentley’s Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, Kevin Rose, said: “We said at the start of the year that 2014 would be a record breaking year for Bentley and we are firmly on track to deliver on our promise. Certain markets are tough, as other luxury car brands can testify, but with our three model lines delivering a perfect blend of luxury and performance, alongside the international appeal that we have as a brand, it will ensure 2014 will go down as our best ever year.”

Bentleys success was helped by the launch of new high performance models, with the stylish Continental GT V8 S coupe and convertible and the elegant Flying Spur V8 entering the international market.

2013 saw Bentley’s highest ever delivery turnover and profits in the company’s 90 year history, sales in the Middle East and Asia have more than doubled in the past three years helping the luxury car maker thrive worldwide.
