Bentley confirms SUV
Bentley Motors has confirmed it will build the world's fastest and most luxurious SUV at its Crewe headquarters, creating a further 1,000 jobs at the company and its suppliers, as well as taking Bentley drivers ‘off-road' for the first time in the marque's history.
This marks the start of an £800 million investment programme.
During the year, three new Bentley models, including the acclaimed Flying Spur sedan, the Continental 4.0 litre GT V8 S and the world's fastest four-seat production convertible, the 202 mph 6.0 litre Continental GT Speed Convertible, were launched. Meanwhile, the dramatic Continental GT3 race car spearheaded the company's return to top-level, international motorsport.
Strong sales increases were recorded through the first three quarters of 2013. The company delivered a total of 6,516 cars against 5,969 in 2012. Bentley's international representation was strengthened with 23 dealerships opening in locations from Bucharest, Lyon and Minsk through to Hanoi (Vietnam) and the famous Silk Road city of Urumqi.∎
