Bentley Motors at Pebble Beach 2015
The new Bentley Continental GT makes its North American debut at this year’s Monterey Auto Week, alongside inspiring models from Bentley’s past and future.
The Continental GT has been refreshed for 2016 with a complement of new exterior design features. Adjustments to the front bumper and radiator shell lend a more assertive and confident stance to the front of the car. At the rear the bumper has been reshaped and widened for an added sense of power, and now features full-width brightware.
Visual upgrades continue inside, with a new and contemporary straight-fluting pattern adorning the four generous seats, while the Mulliner Driving Specification gains a tightened, “small-diamond” quilting pattern reminiscent of a tailored British jacket.
Michael Winkler, President and CEO, Bentley Motors, Inc. comments: “The future of Bentley is now, and Pebble Beach is the perfect backdrop to showcase the new Continental GT alongside gems from our past and concepts for our exciting future. The new Continental GT is a testament to Bentley trademarks of luxury and performance and we’re excited to share it with friends of Bentley during this gathering of fine automobiles.”
Throughout the week, at the Quail Rally, the 1930 Bentley Blower will be celebrating its 85th anniversary and continuing its summer of prestigious motoring events with a dynamic appearance alongside the flagship Mulsanne Speed, Flying Spur and the new Continental GT.
On Saturday, Bentley will present the most extreme example of the Continental family, with the GT3-R, alongside its racing counterpart the GT3 at The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion held at the Laguna Seca Mazda Raceway paddock.
The week will culminate with a look to Bentley’s future; the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept will be presented on Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
