And what better place to continue the abuse than at this weekend’s Pebble Beach celebrations? What better place for Bentley to flash its wares than Pebble Beach, where the world’s true 1% gather for caviar nibbling and champagne sipping. There Bentley will debut their Limited Edition Le Mans Mulsanne, complementing the entire Continental range of Le Mans Limited Edition models available exclusively to North America.
“2013 is the 90th Anniversary of the first Le Mans 24 Hours race, in which Bentley was the only British marque to participate, and also the 10thAnniversary of the most recent win for the Speed 8 in 2003,” Christophe Georges, COO of Bentley Motors America, says about the event. “Pebble Beach, for us, is the ideal place to debut and display our Le Mans Limited Edition Mulsanne model and to showcase our flagship vehicle in its Limited Edition livery to a very knowledgeable audience of automotive enthusiasts and Bentley owners from around the world.”
