Some luxury car manufacturers reached their quarterly sales targets within the first six days of the Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, the Shanghai Securities News reported Monday.
British car manufacturer Aston Martin said it made five of its One-77 model cars available for the China market and they were all ordered before the show opened. At a price tag of 47 million yuan ($7.19 million), the One-77 model, a limited edition with just 77 cars offered around the world, is the most expensive car at the show.
Huang Lixin, a regional general manager for Bentley, said the company received orders for 60 units of Bentley vehicles during the show, mainly at a price of 4 million yuan. The annual sales target for the region in 2011 is 300 units, the report said.
