The oldest dealership in the world – Mayfair icon Jack Barclay Bentley – has officially reopened its doors after a comprehensive refurbishment, revealing a modern space. Jack Barclay is true British institution and a real icon for both and the UK as a whole.
Bentley fans will appreciate a more modern feel, resonant of the neighbouring luxury ateliers and galleries in London’s exclusive Mayfair.
The customer experience has been brought into even sharper focus, with a stunning new central bar – trimmed in luxurious leather – acting as a focal point on the ground floor, and new a commissioning suite providing inspiration and offering greater privacy.
At the same time, long-standing customers will still recognise many of the showroom’s original design features – such as the basement’s iconic chequered floor, wood panelling and art-deco signage – which have been harmoniously woven into the new design.
BENTLEY – BENTAYGA MULLINER BIOMETRIC STORAGE
This Spring, Bentley is introducing capacitive fingerprint sensor technology with a secure stowage unit in the Bentayga – affording customers even greater peace of mind.
Developed by Bentley’s personal commissioning division, Mulliner, the fingerprint sensor technology has been applied to a high pressure die-cast aluminium secure stowage unit located in the cabin. This discreet and unobtrusive locker creates the ideal place to stow valuables while at the beach, on the ski slope or utilising valet parking services.
With two USB ports and an auxiliary socket, it can also be used for connecting and charging mobile devices both inside and outside of the unit, enabling occupants to access Bentayga’s extensive infotainment technology, including Apple CarPlay.
