Member of the Week | Bentley Motors

An icon of British motoring excellence, Bentley Motors boast an unparalleled 95-year heritage of creating powerful, handcrafted luxury cars from their factory in Crewe, England – and is today’s Walpole Member of the Week.

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.

Bentley’s recent entry into the SUV category, for instance, necessitated the creation of a car with the power, performance and technological prowess to handle the most challenging of global terrains, yet with the artisan ship and finesse to withstand the most extreme scrutiny. It asked us to see new worlds through new eyes, both in epic landscape and breathtaking detail. Bentley reappraised the luxury SUV category, rescaped it and, ultimately, redefined it. The result was Bentayga–the fastest and most luxurious SUV built to date.

With a 600 bhp, W12 engine capable of 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds and a top speed of over 180 mph, Bentley again delivered on its promise, creating an extraordinary SUV for its extraordinary customers.

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.
