LONG–AWAITED – THE STORY BUILDS

  • Fifth model to be revealed 12:30 BST, Tuesday 10 May
  • 24 billion configurations of specification to be offered
  • New Airline Seat Specification with world-first auto climate sensing and advanced postural adjustment systems

(Crewe, 4 May 2022) Bentley will announce a fifth model to join its portfolio of luxury cars at 12:30 BST on Tuesday 10th May. Opportunities for personalisation will be greater than ever before with 24 billion unique possible configurations of trim specification alone – all handcrafted at Bentley’s carbon-neutral factory in Crewe, England.

Available configurations will include the new Bentley Airline Seat specification. The most advanced seat ever fitted to a car, it offers 22-ways of adjustment and world-firsts in a new auto climate sensing system and advanced postural adjustment technology with 177 individual pressure changes possible across six zones.

Meanwhile Bentley Diamond Illumination, where light is emitted through small perforations in the soft feel door trim, demonstrates how technology combines with contemporary craftsmanship to deliver modern design using luxurious materials. The illumination effect is achieved using LEDs (12 on each of the front doors, 22 on each of the rear doors) that emit light through small perforations 1 mm in diameter in the leather-trimmed door panels.

Bentley’s instantly recognisable Diamond Quilting, specified by an ever increasing number of customers, has been reimagined in a dramatic and contemporary new design. The execution looks simple but the obsession to detail behind it encapsulates all that is unique about Bentley interiors.

With an extra dimension of on-board wellness, the new model will sit in sumptuous comfort at the pinnacle of its range and deliver a breadth of capabilities – and configurations - beyond anything previously offered.
