New 'Grand Bentley' Teaser Shot


Bentley is marking its 90th anniversary today by releasing this latest teaser photo of its upcoming new model.

Bentley has yet to reveal the name of the new four door saloon whose muscular shoulder we are peering over, referring to it only as the 'Grand Bentley'.

An all-new Bentley is a pretty unusual event, with the last completely new model being the Continental GT back in 2003. (We think!)

According to Bentley, the new car is designed to capture the spirit of the 'Bentley Boys', the famous group of wealthy businessmen, sportsmen and inheritors who brought the brand fame in the 1920s, winning Le Mans four consecutive times and racing throughout Europe.

The new car is designed to evoke this legacy and to excite real motoring enthusiasts, says Bentley, which also promises real technological innovation and comfort.

The company has promised to reveal the real name of the new car, along with the machine itself (conveniently) on 16 August in Monterey, California, at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance.

    Looks awesome! No doubt this will be the start of a long and tedious series of teaser shots of the new car. All of which will be shot from obscure angles in bad lighting....... Oh joy.

    Looks like a '66 or '67 Chevy Malibu! (No bad thing though!)
