Average insurance cost for a Bentley
The average insurance cost of owning a Bentley can vary depending on your situation, including your age, how often you drive the car and your driving history. It can be surprisingly low if you fall into a certain category. For instance, if you’re a middle-age driver with a good driving record who rarely uses the car, the cost could be as low as $2,000 a year. But if you’re in your 20s and have numerous driving citations, you might pay up to $16,000 a year to insure this hand-crafted luxury automobile.

About the Bentley brand
Founded by W.O. Bentley in London in 1919, Bentley Motors was later acquired by Rolls-Royce in the 1930s, and eventually became part of Volkswagen Group in the 1990s. The Volkswagen Group also sells cars and motorcycles under such luxury brand names as Porsche, Bugatti, Lamborghini and Ducati.
The Bentley Continental was the first car manufactured under Volkswagen management back in 2003 and also the first Bentley to be mass-produced. As of July 2018, only four Bentley models are in production: the Continental, Bentayga, Flying Spur and Mulsanne.
Although now owned by a German automaker, Bentley’s headquarters remain in England, where they continue their tradition of creating some of the world’s most desirable high performance automobiles.
