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.
