Last month, Gear Patrol had the rare opportunity to get behind not only the wheel, but the gates and doors of the fabled marquee, Bentley Motors. Traveling to Crewe, England we buried ourselves in everything from nearly a century’s worth of motoring history, Bentley’s unrivaled bespoke designs, to a rare all-access pass of the entire factory grounds. And of course, this being GP, we also buried the accelerator pedal into the deep pile floor mats of the newly honed, 12 cylinder Continental GT — a devastatingly handsome car that made mince (pie) of the English and Welsh countryside.
In two weeks, we’ll bring you a 2 part series of posts and photo essays chronicling our excursions with a true British icon. Until then, carry on.
