Crewe / Almaty, 9th February 2010 ... Bentley, the British-based manufacturer of some of the fastest and most luxurious cars in the world, will soon be officially represented in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Michael Mayer, Bentley Motors’ Regional Director for Europe and the UK, confirmed the decision by handing a letter of intent to Oleg Minchenko of Kazakhstan Premier Metro Group. The new dealership is the latest evidence of the growing demand for Bentleys worldwide, far beyond the company’s traditional markets.
The new Bentley Almaty dealership will be operated by Premier Auto LLC with the official opening in Suyunbai Street 100, Almaty, scheduled for mid 2010.

Undoubtedly the power, performance and luxury of our models are a key part of this success but so too is the authenticity of the Bentley name. From the Le Mans winning Bentley Boys of the 1920s to today’s 630PS Continental Supersports there is an unbroken heritage of outstanding design, craftsmanship and engineering. We look forward to working with Premier Metro Group, whose understanding of the luxury market in Kazakhstan makes them the ideal partners for us in this exciting country.”
