Bentley expands into Kazakhstan
Michael Mayer, Bentley Motors' regional director for Europe and the UK, confirmed the decision by handing a letter of intent to Oleg Minchenko of Kazakhstan Premier Metro Group.
Bentley says that the new dealership is the latest evidence of the growing demand for its vehicles worldwide, far beyond the company's traditional markets.
Welcoming Bentley's partnership with Premier Metro Group, Michael Mayer commented: 'Since the launch of the Bentley Continental family we have welcomed a new breed of entrepreneurs to the brand, especially in fast-developing economies such as Kazakhstan. Undoubtedly the power, performance and luxury of our models are a key part of this success but so too is the authenticity of the Bentley name. From the Le Mans winning Bentley Boys of the 1920s to today's 630PS Continental Supersports there is an unbroken heritage of outstanding design, craftsmanship and engineering.
'We look forward to working with Premier Metro Group, whose understanding of the luxury market in Kazakhstan makes them the ideal partners for us in this exciting country.'
