For a company used to breaking records bagging the company’s highest ever half year profits in its 102 year history must be something of a comfort in these troubled times.
The firm posted 178 million Euros of profit from the sale of 7,199 Bentleys across its range to worldwide markets – something that WO Bentley could not have even dreamt about.
The Bentayga is still Top of the Pops with 2,767 sales posted, the Continental GT is performing well with 2,318 sales with the Flying Spur coming up fast at 2,063 after being launched in China and helped by the addition of the V8 engine.
Interestingly, the last record half year profit was posted back in 2014. China proved Bentley’s most lucrative market for the first time in almost a decade, with the Americas close behind but Europe still performing well. The home market UK share at 554 was, perhaps surprisingly, just ahead of the 521 recorded for the Middle East, Africa and India.
