Each year in California, automobile aficionados gather for Monterey Car Week to welcome the latest and greatest cars known to man. At the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, one of the highlighted presentations throughout the week, car collectors meet and compete with historic and cutting-edge stunners. On the legendary 18th fairway at the Pebble Beach Gold Links course, special guests join to see the 200 best car collections from around the globe. Classics, customs, and cutting-edge cars are flashing their design details and historic charm—some dating back to when cars were invented, others catching attention for newness and rarity.
This year, Bentley wowed attendees with a special centenary presentation. For the past 100 years, the brand has led with British design details that are extra special for both the market and collectors—an appreciation for craftsmanship that goes beyond the interior and exterior of the car. At this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the brand won the “Best of Show” award for its 8-Litre Gurney Nutting Sports Tourer built in 1931.
To further its celebration of 100 years in business, Bentley also released a selection of dynamic images of its visionary EXP 100 GT concept car, taken on the Monterey Peninsula during the jubilant week. They also introduced to the U.S. market the all-new Flying Spur, a drive of the Pikes Peak Continental GT, the new Continental GT V8 Convertible, and the 1929 Team Blower in the festive Centenary Parade at Laguna Sea.
For those not able to attend Monterey Car Week 2019, Bentley launched a new app for Apple devices—the Bentley 100 AR. Using a printable QR code provided at Bentley retailers, guests can interact with a virtual version of the car in full scale, and experience the interior and exterior design details of the new concept car.
