Member of the Week | Bentley Motors
Walpole’s Member of the Week focuses on the member brands that make up the Luxury Index of our 2018 Walpole Yearbook, telling the stories behind some of Britain’s best luxury brands. This week we spotlight one of Walpole’s automotive members, Bentley Motors.
Bentley has a vision for the future. A vision that has driven the company from the moment it first came into existence. It is about creating the kind of excellence that results from the unique tension between uncompromising luxury and outstanding performance. Strive to achieve these extremes and the unexpected happens. Limits are pushed. Expectations are exceeded. Myths are shattered and new ones forged. With each new model, Bentley stretches the bounds of possibility, turning dreams into reality and producing cars for the discerning few who seek a different kind of adventure. The truth at the core of the Bentley brand always has been – and always will be – the desire to build extraordinary cars for extraordinary customers.
Bentley founded its reputation on the racetracks of the world and is recognised as the pinnacle of motoring amongst discerning drivers and owners. Its range of luxury performance cars are second to none, backed by an organisation that is as fine-tuned as the cars themselves. One that continues to set new benchmarks for authenticity, performance, British craftsmanship, innovation and technology. From its beginnings to the present day, Bentley has never rested on past glories. It continues to build on its success in motorsport whilst regularly introducing groundbreaking new models.
Recently Bentley introduced the next generation of the Continental GT. When it first emerged in 2003, the Continental GT was revolutionary. Building on the glorious reputation established by the R-Type Continental, it is a symbol of everything a grand tourer should be, embodying Bentley’s unique blend of exquisite style, unrivalled craftsmanship and thrilling power. The new Continental GT takes things further still. A new 6.0 litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine is paired with an eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission system to deliver phenomenal acceleration and a drive unlike any other car. And inside the cabin, it looks and feels like a wholly new level of luxury. A stunning demonstration of Bentley’s unrivalled attention to detail, it delivers a true journey of discovery for the driver. Designed to delight every sense, this is a car to see, feel, hear and appreciate. State-of-the-art technologies have been integrated throughout, to enhance the driving experience, without ever overpowering it.Designed and built at the Bentley factory in England, this is a car unlike any other. Consider it the definitive grand tourer.
This beautifully balanced marque continues to deliver its message with passion –one that is as challenging as it is reassuring: springboard off yesterday, race today and, above all, chase tomorrow.
