Past meets present at this year's Pebble Beach Concours D' Elegance
This year Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, held on California’s Monterey Peninsula, will be in focus for a week of the world’s most coveted historic automobile displays and events.
Bentley continues to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race, as it debuts the North American exclusive Le Mans Limited Edition Mulsanne.
“2013 is the 90th Anniversary of the first Le Mans 24 Hours race, in which Bentley was the only British marque to participate, and also the 10th Anniversary of the most recent win for the Speed 8 in 2003,” said Christophe Georges, COO of Bentley Motors America. “Pebble Beach, for us, is the ideal place to debut and display our Le Mans Limited Edition Mulsanne model and to showcase our flagship vehicle in its Limited Edition livery to a very knowledgeable audience of automotive enthusiasts and Bentley owners from around the world.”
The iconic Bentley Blower and the 2003 Le Mans winning Speed 8, along with its driver Guy Smith, join Bentley at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering on Friday the 16th of August. The Flying Spur, Bentley’s new luxury four door sedan and the Continental GT Speed, Bentley's fastest production model ever, will also be on display at this exclusive gathering set upon the rolling greens of The Quail Lodge and Golf Club.
Following its world debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, Bentley will present the Continental GT3 race car at The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion held at the Laguna Seca Raceway. The car, together with members of the Bentley Motorsports team, will be on display in the Laguna Seca Raceway paddock from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th August. Following this appearance, the Continental GT3 will continue its programme of developmental track work ahead of the planned return to competitive racing in 2014.
