Bentley will hand UK debuts to three exciting new models at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed in June. The luxuriously powerful Continental GT Speed, Bentayga SUV and Flying Spur V8 S will all be presented to UK customers for the first time at the famous event.

The GT Speed was unveiled in early 2016 with the handcrafted Bentley raising the benchmark for bespoke interior quality and unparalleled performance and power. The new Continental GT Speed is the fastest-ever Bentley produced, reaching speeds of 206mph.

Lining up alongside the GT Speed is Bentley’s first ever production SUV, the Bentayga. Built in Britain, the Bentayga interior and all-new Bentley W12 petrol engine bring traditional Bentley comfort and performance to the luxury SUV class.

Completing the trio of UK debuts at Festival of Speed is the Flying Spur V8 S. The most refined V8 performance sedan in the world showcases Bentley’s trademark comfort and dynamics, delivering effortless driveability with enhanced engine performance and intuitive in-car technology.

Bentley will showcase several legendary models on Goodwood’s famous hill climb, with the iconic Team Blower Le Mans 24 hours car from 1928 sure to thrill the crowds. Other dynamic appearances include:

  • The Bentayga driven by Bentley Brand Ambassador, Derek Bell
  • The GT3 race car driven by Bentley Boy, David Brabham
  • The luxurious new Flying Spur V8 S

Festival of Speed will see six Bentleys join the automotive spectacle on 23 – 26 June. Find out more via: www.goodwood.com/tickets
