"The expertise of Bentley’s leather workers—often several generations of the same family—rewards the Bentley owner with each glimpse of the eye, each caress of the hand, and each grasp of the hand-stitched steering wheel."

“The Petersham Nurseries lifestyle is a translation of the way we Bogliones like to live. It’s a quintessentially British brand with a strong underlying Italian influence. We celebrate the seasons through our gardens and our food, and try to live in harmony with nature.” @laraboglione as told to @gelasiogaetanidaragona. Photo by @alinecoquelle.

The interior leather comes from cattle that graze the cool hillsides of northern Europe. A special tanning process follows, and it is here that the natural leather aroma—reminiscent of classic Bentley interiors—is born. #spiritofbentley link in bio.

The all-new #continentalgt road car forms the basis of the new Continental GT3 racecar unveiled today at @bentleymotors. Its mostly aluminium structure was used as the foundation to deliver a race-ready weight of significantly less than 1300 kg, helping to deliver an ideal weight distribution for racing. Link in bio.
The first-generation Continental GT3 has proven to be a championship-winning endurance racer, scoring 120 podiums and 45 wins across 528 races around the world to date. Development of the new car has been led by the engineers of Bentley Motorsport’s in-house team based in Crewe, together with designers and technicians at Bentley’s motorsport technical partner, M-Sport.

“After four years of racing success, we’re excited to reveal our new second-generation Continental GT3 racecar, based on the all-new #continentalgt road car" - Brian Gush, Bentley Director of Motorsport. Swipe to explore every angle. Link in Bio.
One of Jools Holland’s fondest memories is the time when he was five and he ran in front of a car in the street. His father grabbed him to safety, shouting, ‘Watch out for the Bentley!’ He recalls looking at the impressive grille and memorising the word ‘Bentley.’ #spiritofbentley link in bio.
From the grandest of gestures to the smallest of details, the winged ‘B’ badge represents more than just the world’s most finely crafted cars. It is an approach to living: a blueprint for every experience our hurried lives can offer. #spiritofbentley link in bio.
“I love the sound when I place my foot on and off the accelerator. The car spits and crackles. There is no other car quite like it. It’s like music.” Jools Holland as told to @gelasiogaetanidaragona. #spiritofbentley link in bio.
