Bentley Motors comes with two Continental models which have been engineered and designed exclusively for the China market.
The Chinese market is now the third most important single market for Bentley globally in terms of sales and one of the fastest growing. Since Bentley entered China in 2002, sales have grown nearly ten-fold to 421 cars in 2009, a trend that continues despite the recent global recession.
The Continental GT Design Series China, which will debut at the 2010 Auto China Motor Show, highlights the creativity of Bentley’s stylists working in partnership with the company’s colour and trim experts to create some vibrant, design-led interiors.
The centerpiece of each Design Series China car is the three-tone interior that blends a main leather hide color with accent and insert colors. Matching trim also appears on the seat belts, floor mats, and seat piping. The cars are also the first to feature Bentley’s new Orange and Magenta color options.
Bentley is also launching the Continental Flying SpurSpeed China. The car is capable of achieving a potential top speed of 200mph/322km/h and a 0-60mph sprint time of just 4.5 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds).
Both models can be seen on the Bentley stand in Hall E5 of the Auto China Motor Show in Beijing which runs between 23rd April and the 2nd May in the New International Exhibition Centre.
