Now, at the North American International Auto Show that takes place in Detroit Bentley is roaring its way on stage and into the center of attention with its new Bentley GT Speed Convertible. Different sources have announced a 22 % global sales increase, with the Americas region maintaining its position as number one market for Bentley.
