Bentley launches ‘Le Mans’ range for US customers

2013 Bentley Continental Le Mans Edition

To celebrate the 90th anniversary of Bentley’s first win at the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race, the company is building an exclusive range of Le Mans limited edition specification cars solely for its North American clientele.

In all, Bentley won the flagship endurance race six times between 1924 and 2003 and as such has designed six limited-edition Continental GT coupes and six equally limited-edition Mulsanne models, each inspired by and named after one of Bentley’s winning Le Mans drivers: John Duff; Dudley Benjafield; Woolf Barnato; Tim Birkin; Glen Kidston; and Guy Smith.

“We’re very proud of our motorsports heritage and we’re excited to celebrate our historic wins at Le Mans 24 Hours,” said Christophe Georges, President and COO, Bentley Motors, Inc.

“The Le Mans Limited Edition models showcase our performance and handcrafted luxury through these unique, heritage inspired specifications.”

Each car will feature a unique Le Mans edition numbered badge, a specially designed interior clock, unique wheels, and specific interior veneers and exterior paint colors.

Under the hood the engines of the special editions will receive tuning tweaks and suspension adjustments to up their sportiness while retaining their comfort.

In all, Bentley plans to produce 48 examples of each model. The first Le Mans Continental GTs are expected to be delivered this summer, while Mulsanne customers will have to wait until the autumn.

Bentley has launched a dedicated website for further information about the specifications of each limited edition model at lemansedition.bentleymotors.com

Bentley reveals new Flying Spur

Bentley Motors said it will unveil its redesigned Flying Spur, the company’s most powerful four-door model ever, at the Geneva Motor Show on March 5.

Designed to set a new benchmark in the “luxury performance” segment, the redesigned Flying Spur has an evolutionary design which borrows cues from the Continental GT and Mulsanne.

As such, the sedan has a lower and wider appearance which is further enhanced by curvaceous surfaces and muscular rear haunches.

Notable highlights include LED-infused headlights, ventilated front fenders, a more upright grille and 19- to 21-inch alloy wheels.

The company said the Spur’s 6-liter, 12-cylinder engine generates 616 horsepower and will drive the 5,451-pound sedan from zero to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, and to a top speed of 200 mph.

“Bentley’s new Flying Spur is the ultimate luxury performance sedan. Our engineers have worked tirelessly to ensure that the Flying Spur is the perfect combination of power, comfort, refinement and hand-crafted quality,” said Bentley chairman and Chief Executive, Wolfgang Schreiber.
