Members from all over the UK gathered at the clubhouse in Wroxton for an opportunity to drive the latest models from Crewe, by courtesy of Bentley Motors, who kindly made cars available.
Four cars were available, a Mulsanne, flagship of the Bentley range, a Continental GT Speed Series 51, a Continental GT V8 and a New Flying Spur. On display was a convertible Continental GTC V8 in Dragon Red.

New Flying Spur
This is an all-new car, departing from the former practice of basing the Flying Spur on the Continental GT cars. The performance and roadholding are remarkable for a full four-seater, four-door saloon; for all practical purposes, it is the equal of the GT Speed in handling and sheer grunt.
The front seats are adjustable for length
The luggage capacity is slightly greater than the Mulsanne's. The protrusions at the top are optional Naim loudspeaker boxes
