As more people are able to afford expensive cars in the country, the super-rich have caused a massive influx of ultra-modern and obscenely expensive makes to maintain the status quo. This influx caused Bentley to start selling its vehicles to the Russians in 2003, and over 1,300 have now been sold in the capital alone, reports the Associated Press.
Other car makers have followed suit even with the high custom duties in place, including Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. The problem with most supercars is that the attention they can get can be both good and bad. In any case, we're sure if you can afford a Bentley, you can afford to get "protection" from the Russian mafia.
