Seeing it's best sales since the 2008 global financial crisis, Bentley is hoping to continue it with the introduction of new models during the next few years. Bentley CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer told reporters today the company is deciding whether to build an SUV.
Rumor has it the proposed Bentley SUV will use a W12 engine, priced around $140,000, and come out sometime in 2014.
Duerheimer said the decision will come sometime in the first quarter.
But that's not all. Duerheimer also revealed the company is considering an extended wheelbase version of the Mulsanne and expanding the Continental lineup.
"I can well imagine a new two-seater coupe, a racing version and a car with a new roof system," said Duerheimer.
