As part of its centenary celebrations, Bentley announces the events and special introductions the British marque will host during Monterey Car Week, 15 to 18 August. To mark the occasion, two models will debut - the all new Flying Spur luxury four-door Grand Tourer, and the EXP 100 GT, a vision of luxury mobility in 2035.
The all new Flying Spur will be on display on 16 August at 'The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering' The third generation Flying Spur sets new standards of driving enjoyment and luxury, showcasing Bentley's unique application of cutting-edge and modern technology, while seamlessly integrating the latest British craftsmanship and innovation features that push the boundaries of refinement and attention to detail. A technological tour de force, the new Flying Spur will be the most advanced luxury Grand Touring four-door available.
Alongside its totally new and advanced aluminium and composite chassis, it features optional Electronic All-Wheel Steering - a first for a Bentley, coupled with Active All-Wheel Drive and the acclaimed Bentley Dynamic Ride active anti-roll system powered by a 48V architecture. The all new Flying Spur will be on display on 16 August at 'The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering' and at the Home of Bentley for the remainder of the weekend.
It will be joined by the EXP 100 GT concept car, which makes its U.S.A debut. With the EXP 100 GT, Bentley has reimagined the idea of grand touring for the future.
The EXP 100 GT displays the future of luxury craftsmanship with a seamless fusion of materials and the intelligent curation of technology The EXP 100 GT is pure Bentley, inspired by the company's deep understanding of the desires of its intelligent, forward-thinking customers. Beautifully styled, it embraces artificial intelligence as a means to reassert the car as a place for creating, experiencing and capturing extraordinary human experiences and emotions.
It displays the future of luxury craftsmanship with a seamless fusion of materials and the intelligent curation of technology. The vehicle's battery system will power four motors that deliver superior performance.
Projected performance figures include a 0-96km/h time of less than 2.5 seconds, a top speed of 300km/h, and maximum torque of 1,500Nm. The EXP 100 GT will make its U.S.A debut at 'The Quail' on Friday, and can be seen at the Home of Bentley on Saturday, as well as at a special display adjacent to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Concept Lawn on Sunday 18 August.
Bentley will show a number of all new and soon-to-be available vehicles for the U.S.A market, including the all new Continental GT V8 - coupe and convertible - as well as the Bentayga portfolio of Design Series, Speed, V8 and Hybrid. Of special interest will be the record-breaking Pikes Peak Continental GT - the car that recently conquered the world-famous international hill climb course in Colorado 8.4 seconds faster than any other production vehicle in Pikes Peak history.
During the famed Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca on Saturday, 17 August, Bentley will showcase an impactful heritage display during a Centenary Parade prior to the historic races. More than 30 pre-war Bentleys - courtesy of the W.O. Bentley Tour - and current production vehicles will set out on the 3.6km track. Leading the parade will be Bentley's own 1929 4.5-litre Team Blower, flanked by the record-setting Pikes Peak Continental GT and new Continental GT Convertible. All will then be on display at the Bentley Hospitality Pavilion.
