Bentley celebrates Centenary with Gala night

In 2019, Bentley is celebrating its 100th anniversary since it was founded. Events dedicated to the Centenary celebration are being held all around the world. In Russia, Bentley has celebrated our Centenary on April 4 with a gala dinner, Gala Night, which started at the symbolic time of 20:19.

The event took place in Moscow at the Museum of Russian Impressionism, where customers, retailers, celebrities – fans of true British luxury - were invited.

“Bentley has been making luxury Grand Tourers since its foundation in 1919, and is adding the Continental GT Convertible to its lineup on the threshold of the brand’s 100th anniversary. We are pleased to celebrate the centenary with the solemn Bentley Gala Night, and introduce the new convertible to our Russian clients in Moscow. On this special evening, the time has stopped for our guests to live and experience the wonder and beauty of this moment”, - said Christian Schlick, Head of Bentley Russia.

The guests of Bentley Gala Night were immersed in the extraordinary atmosphere of the Museum of Russian Impressionism, supplemented by an emotional acting monologue. Together with the main character, played by Konstantin Khabensky, Bentley “stopped time”: the visual metaphors of the installation merged with the honest monologue to remind guests about simple truths, about a simple moment that can encapsulate an entire era.

The extraordinary evening was continued with private tours of the exhibition 'Away from Vanity' by the French impressionism inspired artist Nikolay Meshcherin.

The luxurious Continental GT Convertible also premiered in Russia at the Bentley Gala Night. The new convertible is the embodiment of Bentley’s rich experience in creating innovative and outstanding Grand Tourers. It was designed and handcrafted in Crewe (UK), where the only factory of the brand is located. The elegant cabriolet from Bentley is a perfect combination of unmatched dynamics and sophisticated design.

The luxurious Bentley Continental GT Convertible has a phenomenal 635 hp engine and a maximum speed of 333 km/h, and it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds.
