South Korea sees new Bentley models as brand’s sales exceed expectations

Article by Christian A., on September 18, 2014

South Korea seems to like the luxurious vehicles produced by Bentley as the British carmaker owned by VW Group already sold 196 vehicles through August, beating last year’s total sales of 170 units.

As a result, by the end of the year, Bentley will introduce in South Korea the Continental GT3-R as well as the new Mulsanne Speed which will make its world debut next month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

Moreover, Bentley introduced today in South Korea the V8-powered version of the Flying Spur, which costs around $272,000 in the market. The current leader on the South Korean market is Mercedes-Benz, while Bentley is on the second place.

Bentley is also preparing to introduce its first SUV in 2016, which will be the most expensive in the world. For those who don’t know, the new SUV from Bentley will boost the total sales of 15,000 units by 2018.

As we said, Bentley will introduce later this year in South Korea the all-new Mulsanne Speed, a more powerful version of its flagship sedan that arrives with a 6.75 twin-turbo V8 that produces 537 hp (395 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. This model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds (0-60 mph) in 4.8 seconds, while top speed is limited at 190 mph or 305 km/h.
