Bentley at Geneva International Motor Show 2019
Bentley celebrates its Centenary at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show with a range of new models, including a highly evocative new Centenary Limited Edition, inspired by one of the British brand’s most iconic racing cars.
Making its first ever appearance on the world stage in Geneva will be the new Bentayga Speed. The world’s fastest production SUV features more purposeful styling to match its imperious performance credentials. Alongside the Bentayga Speed, the stylish, all-new Continental GT Convertible will be making its global public show debut.
Enjoying its European show debut, and celebrating Bentley’s centenary, will be the new Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner. This superbly crafted car, which includes a piece of W.O. Bentley's personal 1930 8 Litre’s crankshaft, pays tribute to Bentley’s founding father and is restricted to just 100 examples.
To commemorate the Centenary, engineers cut the crankshaft into 100 sections for display in each of the new Mulliner cars. The piece is beautifully mounted between the two rear seats and makes each Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner unique.
Visitors to the Bentley stand will be able to develop a deeper understanding of the type of customer experience that makes Bentley truly extraordinary. The range of available experiences – curated in the new Innovation Lab – will include the opportunity to learn about Bentley on Demand, the company’s luxury connected-mobility service, and Bentley’s Advanced Connectivity, which is the world’s first super-fast, reliable and secure in-car WiFi system, as well as an insight into the type of industry-leading services Bentley is exploring for the future.
The Bentley press conference takes place in Hall 1 Stand 1261 at 08:20 CET, 5 March.
100 Years of Extraordinary
W.O. Bentley founded Bentley Motors in order to “build a fast car, a good car, the best in its class”. The company has transformed the face of motoring since the very first prototype was developed in a London mews 100 years ago.
The Geneva International Motor Show is just the start of a wide range of Centenary activities planned during 2019. Bentley will celebrate its Centenary on 10th July, 2019. Read more about Bentley's Centenary here.
