Readers of Centurion Magazine from across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific were asked to share their favourites in various travel and lifestyle categories, with the top three highest-ranking companies in each category announced in the current issue of Centurion magazine.
In the Best Limousine/Saloon Car category, the Bentley Mulsanne has been chosen as the readers' top car. The Readers' Choice is the first such survey undertaken by the editorial team of Centurion Magazine, and indeed the first worldwide survey on this scale to be conducted by any lifestyle magazine.
Thomas Midulla, International Editorial Director Centurion magazine, Europe, Middle East, Asia & Pacific said: "The inaugural Readers' Choice survey has taken our relationship with our readers to a whole new level. For the first time, we have been given an insight into the personal favourites of precisely the people Centurion magazine is created for.
"The results have proved extremely enlightening, and we are pleased to see the high rankings of so many brands with long-standing relationships with our readers. To be the favourite of just one Centurion reader is praise enough, but for those ranking within the top 3, it is the ultimate recognition from Centurion readers the world over.
Wolfgang Duerheimer, Bentley's Chairman and Chief Executive commented: "The Centurion readers' award for the new Mulsanne, which has been designed and engineered at Crewe from the ground-up, is a significant honour for Bentley. We are delighted that our efforts to create a new Bentley flagship combining performance with very high levels of luxury and refinement have been recognised in this way."
Design Director Dirk van Braeckel explains the inspiration behind the Bentley Mulsanne's appearance: "The opportunity to design a new flagship Bentley is something afforded to very few designers. The team set out to create a sculpted form that blended classic Bentley heritage cues with modern lines."Published 13 April 2011
