Bentley Motors Returns to Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017

Bentley chose to debut the Continental Supersports in the UK at 2017’s Goodwood Festival of Speed and piloted by Derek Bell, the powerful machine lived up to this years festival theme; “Peaks of Performance”.

The world’s most glamorous motorsport event, Goodwood Festival of Speed, formed the perfect stage for the outstanding range of award-winning new Bentley models, which took to the track to put on a powerful display.

The Continental Supersports was shown for the first time at Goodwood and Derek Bell, renowned Le Mans champion and Bentley Boy, drove the car up the historic hillclimb. Bentley’s most powerful production car did not disappoint as the world’s fastest four-seat car, propelling to 60mph in 3.4 seconds.

The hillclimb was also taken on by the Bentley Continental GT3, driven by Bentley Boy Andy Soucek, and the Bentley Bentayga, the worlds most exclusive, luxurious and powerful SUV yet.

Bentley also put its finest models on display at the Festival, from a second Continental Supersports, to the Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase. The Extended Wheelbase was designed exclusively for customers who prefer to be chauffeured and offers a decadent car experience.

The Mulsanne’s wheelbase is extended by 250mm for added rear-seat passenger legroom and for added comfort, Bentley has developed aircraft style electronic leg rests that are integrated into the bases of the two rear seats and can extend and pivot to the passengers desire. This innovative addition allows passengers to experience upright, relaxed or reclined seating.

Also on display was the Bentley Flying Spur V8 S, which is a more performance-orientated variant of the standard model, boosted by a twin-turbo V8 engine, capable of producing 528PS. Lastly, the Bentayga Diesel was included in the line-up, due to its outstanding combination of four-wheel drive, a new, triple-charged 4.0-litre diesel-powered V8 engine and the handcraft, luxury interior cabin.
