During the first six month of 2013, Bentley sales increased 9% globally suggesting a strong performance for the rest of the year.
The British luxury marque has sold 4,279 cars so far this year, compared to just 3,929 in the same period of 2012.

Strong growth was registered both in Britain and the US. Bentleys continued to be sought after in the Middle East, with the Continental GT V8 performing strongly, resulting in the region delivering 394 cars to customers, an increase of 28%.

As for China, 817 cars were sold there, down 23%. China is awaiting the arrival of the new Flying Spur. If this model is taken out of the equation sales of the Continental GT and Mulsanne were actually up 24%.

“This success has been supported by the introduction of new models, with the Continental GT Speed and Continental GT Speed Convertible proving successful across multiple regions, while the existing GT W12, V8 and Mulsanne models maintain their strong performance.
“Bentley continues to post significant global sales growth and we are extremely confident we will sustain this success for the remaining months of 2013 as we see the full availability of our new Flying Spur in all markets.”

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
