Bentley’s Centenary Limited Edition Leads Pack Into Geneva

On July 10, Bentley will celebrate 100 years since the company was founded, but they’ll kick off their Centenary activities at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, with several premieres.

One of the most important ones will be the new Centenary Limited Edition. It’s said to have been “inspired by one of the British brand’s most iconic racing cars”, and it’s perhaps based on the Continental GT, although we have no official confirmation yet.

Also making its global debut at the event will be the new Bentayga Speed. This is the world’s fastest production SUV and uses a 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbocharged engine, making 635 PS (626 hp / 467 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque. It hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds and has a 306 km/h (190 mph) top speed.

After its 2018 unveiling, the new Continental GT Convertible will make its show debut in Geneva. It provides an open-top experience and uses the same engine, in the same specification, as the Bentayga Speed. From rest to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) it needs 3.7 seconds and maxes out at 333 km/h (207 mph).

The Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner will sit under the spotlight in Geneva for the first time. The car is limited to 100 units and all of them feature a piece of the original crankshaft taken from Walter Owen’s (Bentley’s founder) 8 Liter car, mounted between the two rear seats, in addition to a wide range of luxury features.
