Article by Anita Panait, on January 10, 2014

Bentley Motors logged a 19-percent jump in global deliveries in 2013 to 10,120 cars, the highest ever the British carmaker has posted. The Americas region remains Bentley’s top market with impressive gains, while Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Europe also logged substantial increases in 2013. Bentley’s global sales network also grew by 11 percent to 193 showrooms.

“2013 marks our fourth consecutive year of double-digit growth, establishing ourselves as the most sought after luxury car brand in the world,” remarked chairman and chief executive Wolfgang Schreiber. He added that Bentley continues to win new customers and is confident that 2014 will be another successful year for the carmaker.

The jump in 2013 global deliveries was boosted by the new models that Bentley launched in 2013, like the Flying Spur, which is considered as the carmaker’s fastest and most powerful four-door model ever.

In the final four months of 2013, Bentley delivered 2,005 Flying Spurs to customers around the world. In contrast, its predecessor, the Continental Flying Spur, sold an average of 2,700 units annually. Bentley has also started deliveries for the Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible. The total number of unique models in the Continental family is now four, with the recent addition of the GT V8 S.

Commenting on the results, Bentley’s Chairman and Chief Executive, Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, said: “2013 marks our fourth consecutive year of double-digit growth, establishing ourselves as the most sought after luxury car brand in the world. We continue to win new customers and we are confident that 2014 will be another successful year for Bentley. People all over the world love the unique combination of luxury and performance of our cars.”
