Bentley premieres new short film to highlight century old success story

All car enthusiasts who drool over the style and power of the Bentley stable can take a moment to celebrate the iconic British luxury carmaker’s entry into its 100th year by watching the marque’s brand new film. The short film, titled ‘Together we are extraordinary: The Story of Bentley Motors’, showcases the century-long heritage of the company founded by W O Bentley on July 10, 1919.

The film briefly portrays the company’s journey right from its foundation up to the new Continental GT while highlighting important events from the previous decades. The marque says that the film was made using Hollywood standard motion graphic technology and 3D scanning to turn real-life actors into metal sculptures. The brand also states that the film was produced by Oscar-winning visual-effects company, The Mill. Right from its Continental GT series to the new Bentayga SUV, Bentley has always kept its fanbase entertained by rolling out exciting cars. So congratulations, Bentley for achieving this amazing feat.

Below is the detailed press release from Bentley Motors followed by the film
