Bentley at Monterey Car Week

BENTLEY is returning to Monterey Car Week with a programme of features across the event that together define the brand's greatest ever presence on the Monterey peninsula in America.

The global reveal of the Bentley Mulliner Batur - the next exclusive, handcrafted, coachbuilt car to be launched by Mulliner - is the pinnacle moment for Bentley in Monterey for 2022, with the car due to be unveiled at Bentley's renowned Signature Party for several hundred guests on the evening of Saturday, August 20.

Joining the Batur in Monterey will be other stunning cars from Mulliner, including Blower Car Zero - the first car in the Continuation Series - along with the first US showing of a customer Bacalar and examples of Mulliner versions of the Continental GT, Continental GTC and Flying Spur.

Mulliner's breadth of ability will be showcased in the Bentayga EWB Mulliner Gallery - a one-off car celebrating Mulliner, making its debut at the event.

The centre point of Bentley's friendly takeover of the Monterey peninsula is the Home of Bentley, located just 200 metres from Pebble Beach Lodge. The 4,000 square foot, $30million property is a French-style contemporary home, set in over an acre of beautifully manicured grounds with expansive views of the ocean, Point Lobos, Carmel Bay and Stillwater Cove.

The Home of Bentley will also mark the public debut of Bentley's new signature look and feel for events, developed by Bentley's own design team. Beautiful expressions of sustainability, authenticity and craftsmanship link design cues from Bentley's model range to the Home, both outside the property and within.

For 2022, the Home of Bentley includes features to stimulate all five senses. Outside, a display of up to six current Bentleys will change every day, and guests will be able to sign-up for a test drive of one of the 103 Bentleys that will come together on the peninsula - one for every year of the company's history.

Meanwhile, a Flying Spur Hybrid will demonstrate Bentley's pinnacle Naim audio system through the bespoke track recently created for Bentley by renowned Hollywood composer and producer, Steve Mazzaro. Further Naim products will be on display and in use inside the Home.

To the rear of the property, a terrace will accommodate a bar and display area from The Macallan, Bentley's sustainable whisky brand partner. During the event, The Macallan will host private previews of the next stage of its partnership with Bentley.

A virtual reality tour of the luxury residences demonstrates how Bentley design DNA is woven throughout the architecture and furnishings of Bentley's first architectural collaboration. Pieces from the Bentley Home furniture collection will also be on display, which translate the materials, motifs and shapes found in Bentley's road cars in to the home.

The Batur will make its public debut on the Concept Lawn outside Sunday's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
