Bentley rolls into the Philippines

Reading Time: 1 minute

Bentley manilaBritish luxury carmaker Bentley has entered into the Philippines and opened its first showroom in Greenhills, a shopping mall in Metro Manila.

Being the company’s 52nd country, the Philippines is a particularly calling market for the Volkswagen Group-owned high-end automobile maker, which is undoubtedly eying the rise in wealth being experienced in the Southeast Asian nation.

The Philippines’ economy expanded 7.8 per cent in the first quarter of 2013, the fastest growing country in the Asia-Pacific region.

This favourable economic growth is hoped to bring in new customers to the luxury segment like never before seen in the Philippines, which is only undergoing an incipient boom after being branded as the “sick man of Asia” for over a decade.

Bentley has said that – although the country’s per capita income is still quite low – their cars will appeal to Filipinos as a form of investment.

The Manila showroom, number 183 for Bentley globally, will include the Mulsanne, Continental GT, the Continental GT Speed, the Continental GTC and the Flying Spur.
