Bentley showroom opening in Budapest
Porsche Inter Auto Hungaria will start selling Bentley luxury cars next year, according to a report on news portal hvg.hu. The closest Bentley dealer is currently located in Vienna.
Luxury car manufacturer Bentley last year produced 11,000 cars, of which 2,600 were sold in Europe, hvg.hu reports. Only two Bentley cars were registered in Hungary lately, although Hungarian owners are regularly servicing 30-40 Bentleys in Vienna.
Based on these figures, the owner of the Bentley brand, the Volkswagen Group, plans to open a 160 square-meter showroom in Budapest and sell ten cars each year, starting from 2019.
Bentley currently manufactures four models: the Mulsanne, Flying Spur, Continental and luxury SUV Bentayga.
