Bentley at Cholmondeley Pageant of Power 2015
Prominent models from the Bentley’s history will be at this year’s Cholmondeley Pageant of Power in Cheshire (12-14 June) along with a pair of Continental GTs in action on the famous track.
The origins of Bentley’s celebrated story will be on display at the event, held on the grounds of the Cholmondeley estate. The famous Bentley Blower will be on display, featuring the legendary supercharger installation developed by Amherst Villiers, the Blower is arguably the most famous model from Bentley’s illustrious past.
The EXP2 will also be in attendance, built in 1920, the 3-litre 4-cylinder car has a top speed of 80mph, so it’s unsurprising that it was a successful racer in its day – claiming the brand’s first ever victory.
The Bentley Continental GT Speed and GT V8 S will take on Cholmondeley’s circuit. The Continental GT Speed coupe is Bentley’s fastest production car ever. The Crewe-built, twin-turbo W12 engine produces a mighty 820Nm, which helps propel the car to its top speed of 331 km/h (206 mph).
Visitors will also find the Mulsanne Speed and Flying Spur on the Bentley stand. Hand-built at the home of Bentley in Crewe, the flagship Mulsanne Speed combines state-of-the-art technology with traditional craftsmanship.
Richard Charlesworth, Director of Royal Relations & Heritage, said: “The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power is a local event for us – just 13 miles from Crewe and the home of Bentley. It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase the craftsmanship and skills of our 3,800-strong workforce, and the great heritage of our famous brand.”
