Bentley Motors will return to Goodwood Festival of Speed this June, bringing three new cars for their UK debuts. Be one of the first to meet the Bentayga, Flying Spur V8 S and Continental GT Speed models.
Goodwood will see the UK debut of the award-winning Bentayga, Bentley’s new luxury SUV. Its all-new W12 engine means it can reach 62 mph in just 4.1 seconds and has a top speed of 187 mph.
Watch the Bentayga get put through its paces on Goodwood’s famous hill climb. It will be driven by renowned racing driver Derek Bell, who had a big hand in the car’s development.
The Sport version of Bentley’s Flying Spur V8 luxury sedan will also be taking part in the hill climb. The new S model has an increased power output from its 4-litre V8 twin turbocharged engine, as well as revised suspension.
The Flying Spur V8 S can reach 62 mph in 4.9 seconds and achieves a huge top speed of 190 mph, which will make it thrilling to watch on the climb.
The Continental GT Speed is the fastest production car in Bentley’s history, and you can see it first on the Bentley stand. The new two-door coupé comes with sporty handling and a twin turbo W12 engine.
The standard GT is already a powerful machine, but the new Speed model raises the bar even further. Its 62 mph sprint time is 4.1 seconds, and its top speed is a whopping 206 mph.
The Bentley stand will feature new and pre-owned models for visitors to see alongside interactive displays about the cars. Explore the traditional craftsmanship techniques used in Bentley factories and test the facial recognition technology designed to help you find your ideal Bentley car.
Bentley will also honour their motorsport heritage at Goodwood with two iconic racing cars tackling the hill climb. First up is the 1929 4.5 litre ‘Blower’ Bentley (left), which was driven at Le Mans by Tim Birkin. And then the current Continental GT3 race car will be driven by Bentley Boy David Brabham.
Plus on Friday 24 June a special Bentley car will go under the auctioneer’s hammer at Bonhams. The Continental GT V8 S Convertible has been designed by Sir Peter Blake, the father of British pop-art. All proceeds from the sale will go to Care2Save Charitable Trust, which raises awareness and funds for palliative and hospice care worldwide.
Goodwood Festival of Speed runs from 23 – 26 June. Tickets are available online.
