Coming off of their best first half yearly sales since 2008, Bentley has already sold just shy of 3,000 cars. That means an increase of 20 percent in 1st half yearly sales. The British carmaker ties their success this year to increased demand for the Continental GT. They also credit growing sales in China, as 680 have been sold indicating a 57 percent growth for their fastest growing market (2nd overall). Bentley's other two largest markets, Europe and the U.S., have both seen increases in sales as well.

Europe has seen 25 percent growth and the Americas have seen a 23 percent jump. The British automaker has seen sales slump in the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East, due to natural disasters and political unrest, respectively. Pricing for the Bentley Continental GT runs at £135,760 in the UK while the Bentley Mulsanne runs a cool £220,000.
