Bentley wants to sell an awful lot of ultra luxury vehicles, mostly of the utility vehicle persuasion.

According to a recent from the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the British automaker is now targeting 20,000 units per year by 2020, which means that it will be doubling its sales from last year within the decade. The company’s original goal was to move 15,000 units by 2018, about 4,000 units more than it delivered last year.
