Bentley Motors

Since the first 3-liter prototype rolled out of W.O. Bentley's Crewe, England factory in 1919, Bentley Motors, Ltd. has striven to distinguish itself as the maker of the finest luxury automobiles in the world. Once known as James Bond's car in the popular 007 series of spy novels by Ian Fleming, the Bentley has reentered the public consciousness in recent times as the car of choice for a growing list of high-profile celebrities, including Jay-Z, Kobe Bryant, and even Paris Hilton. Owned by Volkswagen since 1998, the Bentley brand continues to represent the pinnacle of British elegance and attention to detail, now with the added benefit of German engineering.

Bentley Continental GT Speed
As the fastest in a family of high-performance coupes, the Bentley Continental GT Speed has proven itself worthy of its evocative appellation. Churning 616 horsepower out of its 6.0-liter W12, this luxurious supercar shoots from 0-60 in just 4 seconds.


NOVEMBER 2012

Bentley Continental GT V8
Swapping out the Continental's usual W12 in favor of a twin-turbocharged V8 with direct injection, this entry-level edition of Bentley's signature coupe is designed to save drivers both at the dealership and at the pump.

Bentley Mulsanne
This powerful and refined grand touring sedan from the English connoisseurs of high class is a buttery smooth expression of finely-engineered, hand-built ultraluxury.


JANUARY 2010

Bentley Continental Supersports
Reaching top speed at just over 200 mph, this muscular two-seater is not only the fastest, most powerful Bentley in the high-horsepower history of the famed British badge, it's also the first to incorporate biofuel technology, which translates into high-speed, eco-friendly fun.

Bentley Continental GTC

Bentley Continental GTC
This uber-luxurious cabriolet comes with a sports-oriented heart and brain. While it's not for everyone (wallet considerations), everyone should drive one at least once in their life.


FEBRUARY 2006

Bentley Continental Flying Spur
The Flying Spur is the combination of the latest Volkswagen technology (like a 552-horsepower W12 engine) and a half-century worth of British Bentley style. Consider it one of the best ventures between England and Germany.
