Bentley is honouring its 100th year by introducing a special Centenary Specification for all of its models. Inspired by celebrated models and events from the company’s illustrious past, the Centenary Specification will feature on all Bentleys built at the factory in Crewe, England, between January and December 2019.
Centenary badging, distinctive seat embroidery, unique treadplates and other special details will identify each car as part of the celebrations – ensuring they become true collectors’ items. Unique Centenary Gold front and rear badging will match the special wheel centre badges and treadplates with a ‘1919-2019’ display. The steering wheel badge, key fob and gear selector all feature a similar use of the celebratory design.
A special centenary welcome light will greet passengers and bespoke seat embroidery has also been created, with Centenary Gold headrest logos and Centenary Gold Contrast Stitch or Cross Stitch available on these special models.
Inspired by the exquisite metalwork found on vintage Bentleys – such as EXP 2 of 1919 and the 1929 ‘Birkin’ Blower – Centenary Gold is a refined metallic gold, honouring the company’s rich heritage and racing triumphs while interpreting for the modern day with an elegant warm tone and a deep fluid shadow. The colour has been specifically crafted to shine and reflect light like jewellery. It will be used in Bentley’s Centenary logo, and will be synonymous with Bentley’s celebrations.
