Bentley's path to a fully-electric future continues, with the new Bentayga Hybrid SUV bringing a gas-electric drivetrain to the automaker's luxury best-seller. Joining the 2021 Bentayga V8 and the Bentayga Speed, this third iteration is arguably the most appealing, given just how much sense hybrids make in the high-end luxe segments.
Change is in the air at Bentley and, as the British automaker mulls its electric future, the legendary Mulsanne bows out to make way for whatever modern luxury might look like in the next decade and beyond. Six-figures worth of handcrafted excess, the Mulsanne Speed remains a rarity even after 11 years of production, vast and uncompromising in both power and opulence.
Somewhere out there, a wealthy Bentley client is in the mood to spread holiday cheer. You’re looking at the Bentley Flying Spur Reindeer Eight. It’s a bespoke, one-off, V8-powered sleigh with a timely festive vibe.
The Bentley Mulliner Bacalar GT is the first vehicle from the British carmaker’s Mulliner Coahbuilt portfolio. We first saw it in May 2020, and it’s the most exclusive Bentley with only 12 units destined for production. And now, Bacalar Car Zero has made an appearance and is starting its final stages of testing and development.
The Volkswagen Group owns a number of very well known brands, including Lamborghini, Ducati, and Bugatti. For a while, Volkswagen was considering spinning off some of those brands, but that won't happen for at least two. Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati and Italian supercar manufacturer Lamborghini have been confirmed to be staying within the Volkswagen Group.
Bentley Mulliner has announced that it offers new door trim options in tweed for the Flying Spur, Continental GT, and Bentayga. The new interior options aim to provide Bentley's bespoke commissioning division customers with more choice when specifying their vehicle. Bentley offers four contemporary tweed patterns aiming to add a high-quality texture to the near-limitless range of customization options offered by the Mulliner Personal Commissioning Guide.
The new luxury is green, and while the leather and wood may be familiar, Bentley is preparing for some huge electrification changes underneath. Right now, the British automaker may be the world's largest producer of vast, twelve-cylinder engines for cars like the Flying Spur W12, but in less than ten years time they'll all be retired as part of a rapid switch to embrace first hybrids and then pure-electric drivetrains.
British luxury car brand Bentley is expanding the more than 5,000-plus ways in customizing the interior of your Mulsanne, Flying Spur, Continental, or Bentayga SUV. You can now select premium 200 million-year-old stone veneers in place of open-pore wood or technical finishes like carbon-fiber. In a world where luxury car buyers are getting younger by the minute, premium car brands like Bentley are constantly innovating to give every customer the freedom of choice.
Bentley recently unveiled the 2021 Flying Spur V8. It's a lighter, more driver-focused version of its flagship luxury car, and the world is shifting as we speak. Similar to Rolls-Royce and its latest ‘post opulent’ second-gen Ghost, Bentley noticed a shift in how clients prefer to use their expensive luxury cars. As it turns out, more and more Bentley buyers prefer driving the car themselves, thus the reason why Bentley gave the Flying Spur V8 a nimbler set of bones.
The 2021 Bentley Continental GT Mulliner coupe is the latest member of Bentley’s Mulliner Collections portfolio. Featuring exclusive luxury upholstery and an almost endless array of customization options, the newest Continental GT Mulliner coupe will be displayed alongside the luscious Bentley Mulliner Baccalar (along with a still-unannounced new collection car) at Salon Privé in Blenheim Palace, the United Kingdom from September 22, 2020.
Car enthusiasts consider all aspects of a vehicle when making a purchase, and that includes one of the most neglected aspects of all. Bentley has long partnered with the audio experts over at Naim to deliver its in-car audio experience that loyal fans of the marque have grown to love. To celebrate 12 years of collaboration, the two are launching the Naim for Bently Mu-so Special Edition and the Focal for Bentley Radiance to allow Bentley car owners and fans to take the same car audio experience anywhere they go.
