London Salon Privé, The Hurlingham Club (11-14 July 2006)
Guests at this year’s London Salon Privé will witness the unveiling of the stunning new Bentley Continental GTC as it makes one of its very first public appearances at the exclusive West London event.
Salon Privé, held in The Hurlingham Club’s magnificent grounds, is a stylish high-summer garden party by day, and a glamorous cocktail party by night, making it the perfect venue to preview the elegant Continental GTC. Jack Barclay, the authorised Bentley dealer for London, will be showcasing the new luxury convertible amid a glittering line-up of some of the world’s finest cars.
Brent Smith, Jack Barclay dealer principal, said: "We are delighted to be supporting one of London’s finest motoring events and it is particularly fitting that we will be able to exhibit the beautiful new convertible Bentley at this prestigious summer event."
The Continental GTC ensures Bentley’s standard of craftsmanship and design is on full display when the roof is lowered, offering customers a thrilling combination of sophisticated open-top motoring with outstanding performance from its W12 twin-turbocharged 6-litre engine. With over 552bhp it is capable of achieving a top speed of 190mph with the roof down, increasing to 195mph when the roof is raised.
Arguably the most famous Bentley dealership in the world, Jack Barclay has been synonymous with the Bentley marque since 1927 and is situated in the heart of London’s Mayfair. The world’s oldest and largest dealership has recently benefited from a £2million investment, further reinforcing its position as the brand’s flagship showroom.
Brent adds, "The refurbishment of our Berkeley Square showroom has created the ideal environment for customers to commission their new Continental GTC. While the showroom remains true to our remarkable heritage we are able to offer state-of-the-art technology and facilities to complement the modern Bentley range."
The new showroom features a dedicated customer commissioning area and private specification room to provide customers with the opportunity to browse through the vast range of exterior finishes, hides and wood trims - all examples of Bentley’s bespoke and unrivalled craft and design ethos.
The Continental GTC joins the highly acclaimed four-door Continental Flying Spur and Continental GT in the company’s Mayfair showroom later this year.Published 20 April 2006
