2019 Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition unveiled

Bentley has unveiled the Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, with design cues borrowed from the 1930 Bentley 8.0 litre. Just 100 will be built, making it properly exclusive. The 8.0 Litre was the last vehicle designed by founder Walter Owen Bentley (W. O. Bentley) before his car company entered receivership, and was bought by rival Rolls-Royce...

2018 Bentley Bentayga Pikes Peak Edition revealed

Bentley has toppled the production SUV record at the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, and will celebrate the feat with a run of 10 special editions. It was a good weekend to be chasing records in Colorado. Volkswagen set a new overall course record in the all-electric I.D. R, and Rhys Millen hustled a lightly modified Bentayga up the 156 corners of Pikes Peak in 10:49...

2019 Bentley Continental GTC spied again

The next-generation Bentley Continental GTC has been spied undertaking performance testing at the Nurburgring. While the thin camouflage doesn't exactly reveal any new design details, it's quite obvious the GTC will be a fabric roofed version of the Continental GT coupe. It's expected from launch the GTC will be fitted with the new GT's reworked 6...

2018 Bentley Continental GT review: First drive

Tony jets to Europe for a first drive in the all-new 2018 Bentley Continental GT. It might be an evolutionary design, but this is an all-new offering. So, is it any good?

2018 Bentley Continental GT review

Bentley has for sure reset the benchmark with the latest-generation Continental GT, featuring an entirely new design inside and out that is both innovative yet still using traditional materials. It's the first car in decades to put a fresh spin on timber, chrome and leather.

2018 Bentley Continental GT in numbers

The all-new, third-generation Bentley Continental GT is an entirely new car inside and out, which the luxury automaker hopes will redefine the very essence of the modern-day grand tourer. Either way, Bentley has sold nearly 70,000 Conti GTs (as it’s affectionately known) since launch in 2003, handing it the title of 'most successful model' in the brand's 99-year history...

2019 Bentley Flying Spur hits the Nurburgring

The next-generation Bentley Flying Spur has been spied at the Nurburgring for the first time, in the lead-up to the vehicle's production debut. While there's still plenty of camouflage and false bodywork concealing the new limousine's final design, we can make educated guesses as to what's coming from the new Flying Spur based on the recently-revealed and related Continental GT coupe...

2018 Bentley Continental GT priced from $422,600

Australian pricing for the new 2018 Bentley Continental GT has been announced this week, with the British luxury coupe to kick off at $422,600 before on-road costs ahead of first deliveries in the third quarter.

Bentley prepares to tackle Pikes Peak in modified Bentayga

Rhys Millen and Bentley are preparing to chase the production SUV record up the fearsome Pikes Peak hillclimb in a Bentayga prepared by Bentley Motorsport. Nope, we aren't pulling your leg. The current SUV record on the famed strip of Colorado blacktop – formerly gravel, alas no longer – is 12:53...

Bentley offers biometric lockbox in Bentayga

Most cars have a lockable glovebox, and maybe some kind of security in the centre console. For most owners, that isn't a problem. As you've probably gathered by now, the Bentley Bentayga isn't most cars, and the brand's average buyers aren't most owners.  That's why there's a new biometric lockbox for the centre armrest, designed to "stow valuables while at the beach, on the ski slope or utilising valet parking services"...

It is a popular location, easy to get to from Sydney, which only adds to its appeal.

Bentayga V8: Talking active anti-roll with Peter Guest

The Bentley Bentayga V8 recently launched to the motoring press might have a lightweight aluminium body, but that doesn't make it a lightweight SUV. It tips the scales at nearly 2.4-tonnes, more than a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and slightly less than a Range Rover. It's an enormous mass to manage, especially given the grunt at play from the 4...

The Bentley Bentayga Hybrid has been revealed at the Geneva motor show this week, marking the classic British brand's first tentative step into electrification.

Bentley Bentayga gets a V8: The... affordable Bentayga?

For all the upper-luxury penny-pinchers, Bentley finally has a more affordable version of its Bentayga: the V8. Is it as compelling as the monster W12 model? Tony finds out.

It's not quite as rapid as the reactor-powered W12, but the Bentley Bentayga V8 is the more engaging drive with an intoxicating burble to boot.

Bentley Bentayga V8 brakes are largest, most powerful on a series production car

The standard brakes on the Bentley Bentayga V8 aren't what you'd call 'small'. The steel rotors  measure 400mm up front, gripped by six-piston calipers from Brembo. According to Bentley Bentayga product line director, Peter Guest, the package was approved after an exhaustive development process...
