Default All-New Grand Bentley teaser - Bentley Mulsanne now revealed

All-New Grand Bentley teaser released with video

Bentley's Arnage is the finest expression of the super luxury brand's automotive prowess. It uses the finest materials and has the best engines fitted to it. The Arnage is the ultimate Bentley, the Zeus of Bentley. A new one is about to be launched and they call it the Grand Bentley.
This teaser video shows a piece of the top front end including a part of the bonnet and the Flying Lady. The team at Crew seems to have deviated very little from the Arnage design formula if the little bits we see are anything to go by.

Reports suggest that the new car will be longer than the current model. More legroom should then be expected at the back where presumably most Arnage buyers spend their time. Redesigned parts also include the front bumper, rear end and tailpipes.

The Arnage has always been a big-engined car so nothing less than that will suffice for the Grand Bentley as well. Some have suggested that the Veyron's 16-cylinder engine will power the range-topping T model. Even the Audi V12 TDI has been touted as a possible motor for the range. Likely pricing should be around 180,000 (US$295,400) for each example.

So this is the next generation Arnage?
Finally after a long time the flagship models of bentley and RR are totally different models not sharing the same platform.

Bentleys are good. But trust me brother it can never be a rolls killer. Infact no luxury car can ever beat the elegance of a rolls.
Am not talking about India, but even in foreign countries rolls is viewed with respect.
Many members would agree.

While the teaser looks amazing, I'm not so sure I like the front end from the pics that sidindica posted. It seems very un-Bentley to me but thats just my opinion

News Release from Bentley

Today Bentley Motors celebrates its 90th anniversary. Founded by W.O. Bentley in 1919, the first production car was delivered in September 1921. During the 1920's Bentley produced an array of iconic motor cars. Whilst at the same time, the exploits of the immortal Bentley Boys, forged Bentley's proud sporting pedigree, winning the legendary Le Mans endurance race five times between 1924 and 1930.

To celebrate this anniversary Bentley are pleased to announce that the all-new grand Bentley, and its name, will be revealed at Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance, in Monterey, California on 16 August. Signalling a new era in British luxury motoring

The all-new grand Bentley captures the 1920s 'grand touring' spirit of the Bentley Boys - effortless driving, exclusivity and adventure. A unique fusion of elegant design, craftsmanship and technological innovation, the new model embodies the potent yet luxuriously refined driving experience that only a Bentley can offer.

It is fitting that the 90th anniversary will be marked by an all-new car that continues W.O. Bentley's ambitions. Designed, engineered and built in Crewe, the home of Bentley Motors for over 60 years, working on the model has been a 'once in a lifetime experience' for many of those involved.

News Letter:


BENTLEY TO CELEBRATE 90th ANNIVERSARY WITH DEBUT OF ALL-NEW MODEL AT PEBBLE BEACH CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE

"Cars undoubtedly have a personality to the real enthusiast, to whom they are not mere collections of steel and aluminium, but animal-like, show their spirit just so soon as the clutch bites home and feeling comes through to the driver…."

(Sammy Davis, first Bentley road test report, January 1920)

Crewe: Wednesday 8 July. Bentley Motors today celebrates its 90th anniversary and confirms that its all-new Bentley will be revealed - and named - in August at the Pebble Beach Concours D’ Elegance in Monterey, California where the company is a featured marque.

Founded by W.O. Bentley in 1919, the company’s first production car, the 3-litre was delivered in September 1921. Over the next ten years, Bentley went on to produce an array of iconic motor cars. At the same time, the exploits of the immortal Bentley Boys – a select group of businessmen, sportsmen and bons vivants – forged the company’s proud sporting pedigree both on and off the racetracks of Europe. The Bentley Boys made the legendary Le Mans endurance race their own, winning five times between 1924 and 1930.

The all-new grand Bentley captures the 1920s ‘grand touring’ spirit of the Bentley Boys, delivering the effortless driving, exclusivity and adventure desired by the real motoring enthusiast. A unique fusion of elegant design, hand craftsmanship and technological innovation, the new model embodies the potent yet luxuriously refined driving experience that is ‘pure Bentley’. These have been the hallmarks of a Bentley since that first test drive in 1920.

It is fitting that the 90th anniversary of the Company will be marked by an all-new car. Such events are rare milestones in the Company’s history. Designed, engineered and built in Crewe, which has been home to Bentley Motors for over 60 years, it has been a ‘once in a career experience’ for many involved. The car and its name, which will be revealed at Pebble Beach on 16 August, signal a new era in British luxury motoring.

when is the machine officially out in the open? Any Arnage seen in India anywhere. I have seen a maroon Continental in Delhi in OKHLA in summers of 2006, I think the skoda showroom owner owns that one.
