Bentley’s Oldest Dealership In The World Gets A New Look And Feel

Want a new Bentley – or a used one, for that matter? The British brand has over 200 dealerships around the world where you can proceed with your purchase. The oldest of them, though, is Jack Barclay Bentley, and it’s just reopened with an entirely fresh look and feel.

One of Bentley’s largest dealerships, it is located in London‘s Mayfair district. It’s been in operation since 1927 and. after over 90 years, the dealer and the automaker evidently felt it was time for a bit of a refurbishment.

Characterized by a more modern design, the new showroom features a central bar trimmed in Bentley leather on the ground floor. There’s a new commissioning suite as well, but some elements were left just as they were. The art deco signage, wood paneling, and checkered floor in the basement were all retained intact.

“Jack Barclay Bentley is true British institution and a real icon for both Bentley and the UK as a whole,” said dealership spokesman John Stone. “Customers come to Mayfair from around the world to savor the Jack Barclay Bentley experience, and thanks to this stunning refurbishment, we can ensure they continue to enjoy the best service available. We are very excited to open our doors once again and plan to use the space to the full by hosting some fantastic events throughout the year.”

The dealership was acquired in 2000 by the H.R. Owen group, which runs a number of high-end showrooms in the UK. In addition to the Jack Barclay sales and service locations, H.R. Own also operates Bentley dealers in Berkshire, Hertfordshire and Surrey. It also has other locations handling Aston Martins, Maseratis, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bugattis, Rolls-Royces and BAC Monos.
