After revealing its sales figures for 2012 recently, Bentley Motors has just posted its financial results for 2012, reporting an impressive operating profit of €100.5 million up from just €8 million during 2011.

This impressive figure was matched with an increase of 29.9% of total turnover and an increase in its profit margin by 7%. When all accounted for, Bentley’s total turnover for 2012 equated to €1.269 billion while its market share in the luxury car segment increased by 4.9% up to 20.1%.

These financial figures come after Bentley delivered 8,510 cars in 2012 and was also met with an increase in deliveries for the start of 2013 with deliveries increasing by 39.5% over this time last year.

These figures are then set to increase more as the year goes on with the arrival of the 2014 Bentley Continental Flying Spur expected in the coming months.
