New Record Set For The Largest Bentley Gathering Ever

While the world had its eyes on the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, Bentley managed to set a new record for the largest gathering of their vehicles ever at the 2019 Salon Prive Concours d’Elegance.

On the lawn of the Blenheim Palace, in Oxfordshire, England, 1,321 Bentleys arrived at the Drivers Club Annual Rally on Monday, forming a spectacular landscape.

From the automaker’s oldest vehicle made, to the second car built by W.O. Bentley and EXP 100 GT, all generations were represented at the event. Mulliner’s craftsmanship skills were also on display thanks to the restored 1939 Corniche, a concept car destroyed at the outbreak of WWII. The modern day Flying Spur, Continental GT V8 and Bentayga Hybrid were on site as well.

“The sight of over a thousand Bentleys gathered in one place was truly extraordinary, and totally unparalleled in our history”, said CEO Adrian Hallmark. “I’m grateful to the organizers of Salon Prive for making this year’s event such an outstanding celebration of Bentley, and this gathering to mark our centenary was the ultimate finale.”

Shortly before the record gathering took place, the brand’s Chef Executive Officer announced the rebirth of the 4.5-liter Blower. The continuation series will be limited to 12 units and should take approximately two years to complete. Each car will stay true to the original and will be manufactured using the era’s tools. However, modern safety concerns dictate some changes, which will be applied in order to make the reborn Blower street legal.

    Wow, the Mustang gathering was 1,326 and now Bentley at 1,321. Wonder if a Dodge gathering can hit 1,320.
