We are looking forward to Monterey Car Week 2022, August 18-21.
A full week of programming including experiences, grand reveals at Quail: A Motorsports Gathering, Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and around the peninsula will sure to be a highlight of the year. Hospitality and brand expressions like no other will be hosted throughout the week at the Home of Bentley – a testament to our Beyond100 business strategy, a look into the future of luxury and craftsmanship, along with the Bentley Brand Passions Pillars.
Global reveal of Mulliner Batur
The global reveal of the Bentley Mulliner Batur – the next exclusive, handcrafted, coachbuilt car to be launched by Mulliner – is the pinnacle moment for Bentley in Monterey for 2022, with the car due to be unveiled at Bentley’s renowned Signature Party for several hundred guests on the evening of Saturday 20th August.
An impressive line up of Mulliner models at the Home of Bentley
Joining the Batur in Monterey will be other stunning cars from Mulliner, including Blower Car Zero – the first car in the Continuation Series – along with the first US showing of a customer Bacalar and examples of Mulliner versions of the Continental GT, Continental GTC and Flying Spur.
The centre point of Bentley’s friendly takeover of the Monterey peninsula is the Home of Bentley, located just 200m from Pebble Beach Lodge. The 4,000 square foot, $30m property is a French-style contemporary home, set in over an acre of beautifully manicured grounds with expansive views of the ocean, Point Lobos, Carmel Bay and Stillwater Cove.
Debut of new Bentley Home designs
The Home of Bentley will also mark the public debut of Bentley’s new signature look and feel for events, developed by Bentley’s own Design team. Beautiful expressions of sustainability, authenticity and craftsmanship link design cues from Bentley’s model range to the Home, both outside the property and within.
Naim, The Macallan and Bentley Residences experiences at the Home of Bentley
For 2022, the Home of Bentley includes features to stimulate all five senses. Outside, a display of up to six current Bentleys will change every day, and guests will be able to sign-up for a test drive of one of the 103 Bentleys that will come together on the peninsula – one for every year of the company’s history. Meanwhile, a hybrid Flying Spur will demonstrate Bentley’s pinnacle Naim audio system through the bespoke track recently created for Bentley by renowned Hollywood composer and producer, Steve Mazzaro (Dune, No Time To Die). Further Naim products will be on display and in use inside the Home.
To the rear of the property, a terrace will accommodate a bar and display area from The Macallan, Bentley’s sustainable whisky brand partner. During the event, The Macallan will host private previews of the next stage of its partnership with Bentley, to be revealed on the afternoon of Sunday 21st. Tastings of The Macallan’s exceptional single malts, and bespoke cocktails, will be offered throughout.
Inside the Home customers will be able to be taken through a configuration journey to design their perfect bespoke Bentley, with the aid of Mulliner Designers and arrays of samples of materials and colours. Guests will also be able to explore Bentley Residences Miami, a collaboration with Dezer Development. A virtual reality tour of the luxury residences demonstrates how Bentley design DNA is woven throughout the architecture and furnishings of Bentley’s first architectural collaboration. Pieces from the Bentley Home furniture collection will also be on display, which translate the materials, motifs and shapes found in Bentley’s road cars in to the home.
Bentley will feature a stunning selection of cars from past and present at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering on Friday 19th. Guests will take a journey starting from heritage with the Blower, to Le Mans with the Speed 8, through to the present-day line-up of Mulliner and Hybrid products with a look ahead to Bentley’s electrified future.
Presented on Bentley’s show stand will be a unique Bentayga EWB, with the model making its North American public debut. The Bentayga EWB on display has been transformed into an art gallery on 22” wheels, with the interior set to showcase some of Mulliner’s recent work through incredible handcrafted artistry.
A further example of the artisanal skills of Mulliner will be provided by the debut of a customer Bacalar in the USA. Bacalar No. 8, kindly provided by its owner, will be resplendent in its colour palette of white, blue and orange and showcase the breadth of ability of Mulliner – the oldest coachbuilder in the world.
