Bentley's network expansion in Russia belies the recent economic and political turmoil that has dented the overall car market

Bentley has announced the opening of its third dealership in Moscow and reports continuing strong interest in the brand in Russia, despite the country's current economic difficulties.

The luxury brand's new dealership occupys a 'premium location' on Volgogradskiy Prospekt 41.

Bentley Moscow-Volgogradskiy, a partnership with automotive retail specialists, Avilon, offers customers the full Bentley model range as well as aftersales service and the company's branded luxury goods. It adds to Bentley's presence in Tretyakovsky Proezd and at the Barvikha Luxury Village, with Bentley's long-standing partner, Bentley Moscow, operated by Mercury.

Commenting on the expansion, Kevin Rose, Bentley's Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, said: "The opening in Moscow-Volgogradskiy is another key step in our growth plans for Russia. We are making strong progress, with high levels of interest in Bentley across the country, and we look forward to our new dealership contributing to this continued success."

Bentley Motors now has five authorised dealers in Russia, taking the total to more than 200 in 57 different markets around the world.
