To start the Monterey Car Week, a rally of Bentleys will travel to the peninsula beginning its journey from Los Angeles on August 16. A fleet of 30 Bentleys will travel up to the Pacific Coast Highway with an overnight stop along the way. The rally will arrive at Laguna Seca on August 18, right in time for a track parade led by Bentley’s Chairman and Chief Executive, Adrian Hallmark, who will be driving the Blower Car Zero.

Apart from these showcases and events, a dedicated Mulliner commissioning area at the Home of Bentley will allow customers to create bespoke orders for their next Bentley.
