Bentley Ride & Drive Event 5/9/15

    This past weekend's special Ride and Drive event was a wonderful time spent with a few special clients. Giving our community a chance to get behind the wheel of a 2015 Flying spur or Continental GT, and tour through wine country. later that evening, the event was followed by our announcement and reveal of the brand new Bentley Continental GT3R, at the Lafayette Park Hotel. It was a lovely day for an afternoon out on the road, and the stops along the way were nothing short of superb. Take a virtual tour of the days events, and see what you missed.


Our first stop was the Carneros Inn, off of the Sonoma Highway for refreshments, leg stretching, and vehicle swap.



 


Hall Wines

Everyone had a lovely time at Hall Wines. The staff were incredibly friendly, the campus was austere, everything you'd expect from a world class winery.


 


 

 

 


Bentley Continental GT3-R

Inspired by the track, made for the road.

It cannot be overstated how amazing this vehicle is. For the GT3-R, Bentley has introduced more carbon fibre, a titanium exhaust, while removing the rear seats, all to make this car 100 kilos lighter than the lightest Continental V8. And by lowering the ride-height, and so the centre of gravity, it provides tighter handling and faster cornering. Did we mention it goes from 0-60mph in just 3.6 seconds?!




A BIG thank you! again to all of those who came to our Ride and Drive and GT3-R events this past weekend.
