Bentley/Lamborghini Production : 2013

The new Flying Spur flying out of showrooms.

These are two of the halo marques that VW own, both have greatly increased sales in the time that they have been part of the VW Group. Bentley is being produced in record numbers, and Lamborghini one of it's better years.

Firstly, Bentley. Three models make up the range and two variants with the Continental GT. The Flying Spur was updated for 2013 and that certainly gave production numbers a boost, +124.5% to be precise. A total increase of 19.4% is very strong.

Meanwhile Lamborghini could not quite manage the same success in 2013. The Aventador introducing the Roadster model variant pushed it past the aging Gallardo. The new Huracán is now arriving for 2014 and just appeared on the chart. It replaces the very popular Gallardo so has big shoes to fill.
