Peole with that kind of money wanted one so they went to get one. She did sell anything

Damn it: didn't

I'd take her for a test drive.

There is more than one Veyron salesperson on the planet though and she managed to out sell all the rest so she must have something to do with it.

It tells you what she most likely earned from her sales in the article, subby.
 
2013-02-19 08:01:25 AM  
Well, according TFA, approximately £15,000 per car.

reminds me of that episode of Coach, where Dauber gets upsold by some bint like this one.

You mean her boobs must have something to do with it....  I'm trying to find a way to sell my kidney as we speak so that I can buy a Veyron from her.

She happened to answer the phone.

Nice boobs but, honestly, I was expecting someone much hotter.

Not studman, I'd bang the hell out of it, just saying I was thinking of someone else in that position.

Also 5-10K comission on a ~$1 million sale?   That BLOWS
 
2013-02-19 08:38:35 AM  
That car sells itself and is probably already sold in the buyer's mind when he walks in the showroom.  She's just lucky to work at such a dealership.

The salesperson who sold 11 Aztecs, that's a real salesman.

Her base is probably six figures.  For a major accounts salesperson, you want the commission structure to provide perks, not the bread and butter.  The sales cycle on multi-million dollar luxury cars is probably 4-6 months, with management pressure on selling to people Bugatti feels would be good brand ambassadors.

You can sell skilttles and beer on commission, but desperation kills a big sale.

I hope so, otherwise she probably is providing BJs for sales.  And the rest of the sales team is in the breakroom trying to steal from the vending machine.

The skill would be in diverting people Bugatti don't want running around in their flagship to alternative cars without offending them.  The story isn't so much in how many Veyrons she's sold, but rather how successful she was at getting people from looking at the Veyrons to the Audi, Bentley and Porche lines.

I expect she speeks Russian and knows Middle Eastern import laws like the back of her hand. The people who spend over £1mil on a car expect perfect personal service from profesionals who will do as they say. If you want the car you just bought off the showroom floor to be in Dubai tomorrow then these people will know how to hire a cargo plane at short notice and can get the paperwork sorted.

If the person at the other end of the phone can't do that sort of thing others can. If you outsell the next best salesperson internationally by 100% then you are very very good.

Damn but those are some ugly cars. Still want to drive one though.

Saw an article that said
The Bugatti Veyrons will be sold to customers from at 20 Bentley dealers worldwide.

So all the Arab princes and Russian billionaires all go to the same person? Shocking.

Ugly vehicle. Do not want.

/wow, first with this, I'm getting old
 
2013-02-19 11:57:48 AM  
This is calculated from the dealer's profit margin on each Veyron of around £150,000,

Cool. Now I have some inside info for a good negotiating tactic so I can dicker down a reasonable price on a Veyron.

/so ... how well does the car avoid Brown Pelicans?

She's selling them those cars as much as the girl behind the counter at Wendy's is selling me a cheeseburger.

Exchanges like this are why I love this place...

I am sure most of the folks that bought Veyrons, just happened to be strolling past the dealership, saw the Veyron and went in and bought it on a whim, or because the sales chick was hot. Because that is precisely how I buy all my vehicles. NOT! Or should I say NAUGHT!

Pincy: Doesn't a car like that pretty much sell itself?


I imagine a lot of folks in their target market have a very full schedule of things to see and people to do and  don't wander down to the local car dealership to kill time on the weekend. Knowing the right people to make contact with likely buyers and being able to set up test drives before a rep from another luxury car company does probably isn't easy.

As I said earlier, the Veyron is sold in Bentley shops for a reason.  Someone with a couple of million rattling in a swiss bank account feels like getting a cool new ride, so they stroll into the Bentley shop because they've got a Veyron.

They think they want a 500 HP Shelby Mustang.  It's cool, it's fast, but holy shiat sometimes you just want to drive to the mall without risking killing yourself because you sneezed and moving the throttle 1/2" will take you from 45 MPH to 105 MPH faster then you can blink.  You take the Shelby out for a spin on the closed track.  It's absolutely terrifying. It's got a spartan (for the price tag) interior, it's uncomfortable on anything but perfect pavement, and you can't fit your golf clubs anywhere.

Enter the Bentley.  It's stylish, comfortable, sophisticated, and you feel like you can actually drive it around a corner without ending up in the newspaper.  It has a trunk.  This is a car you can actually drive places.

Veyrons, like the Shelby Mustangs, are there to get people in the door.  A scant handful will actually buy them, but the real skill is pivoting the customer from the Veyron to the Bentley line without making them feel rushed, making them think it was their decision, and getting ink to paper before they leave.

So perhaps the real question is: is she actually the worst Veyron salesperson?  Are the other sales staff actually doing what they are supposed to and re-directing sales while she is just looking at her commission?

Doubtful. Article says the dealer makes around 150,000 pounds per Veyron sold, which is more than what most Bentleys sell for gross.

I think you have your brands confused - a Bentley with any options will set you back hundreds of thousands of dollars.

US MSRP is listing a 2014 Bentley Continental GT at $217K. 150,000 in Pounds works out to roughly $240K.

A Bentley Supersport starts at about $280,000, so basically only 28,000 Pounds more than than the dealer cut from a Bugatti Veyron. That means You need to make 90% of MSRP per Bentley sold to equal one Bugatti.

Now I'm sure they sell more Bentleys but if I have a guy who can clearly afford a Bugatti and I have a salesman who pushes him to the easy sale in the Bentley I'd be fairly ticked.

especialy if it is true that Volkswagen is loosing money on the Veyron.
And don't call that POS a Bugatti!
