Flying Bentley Continental V8 coupe makes debut in Munich
That's right, Bentley Motors celebrated the arrival of its new 4.0 liter V8 Bentley Continental GT coupe in Germany. In a sensational display, a a helicopter flew the new Bentley over downtown Munich and placed it on the SkyLounge.
“A dramatic car got the debut we felt it deserved and we took a little bit of our inspiration from Bentley’s iconic ‘Winged B’ emblem. On a practical level the helicopter was the fastest way to get to the rooftop podium.” Klaus Becker, General Manager of Bentley Munich, who organized the show-stopping helicopter lift commented:
Anyone trying to get through the rush hour traffic in downtown Munich would have seen the bright red Bentley taking a dramatic short-cut through the German city. Not on the streets of course, but in the ksy. The Bentley was suspended beneath a helicopter, to beat the traffic jams. Wouldn't you love to do that?
