Bentley returns to Pebble Beach with 3 North American Debuts
The most luxurious Bentley model ever, Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase, makes its US debut at the Monterey Auto Week.
This pinnacle luxury limousine provides a first class air-travel experience for the road, featuring airline-style seats for the rear passenger in addition to many other luxurious interior features. The Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase will be appearing at the Quail: A Motorsports Gathering on Friday 19 August, and will also be in position on the Concept Lawn at The Lodge on Sunday 21 August.
The newly launched Flying Spur V8 S also makes its US debut at Pebble Beach. Taking its place between the Flying Spur V8 and flagship Flying Spur in the range, the V8 S is tuned for power and performance, with increased engine output and revised suspension offering a more focused, precise driving experience.
The most powerful production Bentley ever, the Continental GT Speed Black Edition, will also be in attendance throughout the event. The revised Continental GT Speed raises the bar even further in terms of exclusivity and performance, delivering a top speed of 206 mph (331 km/h) and even more power and torque.
Drawing A Luxury Lifestyle
For the first time in Bentley’s 97-year history a tow bar has been created as a lifestyle option for the Bentayga and will be in action at Monterey Auto Week.
A Bentayga will ‘draw’ a Bowlus Road Chief to Turn 10 at the Laguna Seca circuit, where the Bentayga-Bowlus tandem will be the feature of a brand display at the track. The Bentayga will also be partnered with the Bowlus Road Chief – Limited Edition Lithium+ at the Quail and at the brand’s Pebble Beach Signature Party on Saturday night.
Michael Winkler, President and CEO, Bentley Motors, Inc. said: “The Monterey Auto Week always sees a remarkable gathering of Bentley customers and enthusiasts, and is a great occasion to celebrate the past and present of this iconic brand. We are fast approaching our centenary in 2019, and our newest vehicles on display at Pebble Beach this year point to an extraordinary future.”
