A stylish event at Bentley Knutsford celebrated the unveiling of the new GT Continental.
Around 100 guests attended the launch, including Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward and her husband, ex-footballer Ashley Ward, who enjoyed champagne and canapes upon arrival before managing director, Jon Crossley, gave a speech for the unveiling. He then handed over to Bentley designer, Darren Day, who was part of the team who actually designed the car. Darren talked about the new car and its design inspiration.
There were also local business partners in attendance, including Serenity Art, Charles Mitchell Wine who held a tasting and Eden Luxury Travel.
A motor simulator, where guests could pay £10 to enter a time trial race was popular and raised funds for The Seashell Trust charity. The winner received £250 in Bentley branded goods vouchers.
