Bentley wrapped up its 2012 winter activities at Aspen Fashion Week. The four-wheel-drive uber-luxe Continental matches the event’s blend of fashion shows and lavish lifestyle combined with the joy and excitement of taking on ski slopes. The event was launched with extreme athlete, Ted Davenport, performing a dramatic ‘Winged-B’ sky dive from 3,000 feet.
Besides sponsoring the winter fashion-wear show and hosting dramatic stunts, Bentley also provided media and prospective customers with test drives of its all-wheel drive Continental model range, including the 567-hp GT coupe, GTC convertible and Flying Spur sedan and the extreme 631-hp Supersports Convertible ISR (Ice Speed Record).
The powerful and luxurious Bentley might not be the ideal car for snow driving, but the car’s superb AWD system gives it incredible versatility. It’s not a Range Rover, obviously, but for a big and heavy GT car, it’s pretty good.
For the perfect end to a day of winter driving and fashion, Bentley hosted a dinner at the Aspen Mountain Club. Perched atop Ajax Mountain, guests raised a glass of Krug as a toast to peak performance while watching a short film ‘In Search of Snow’ starring Red Bull extreme athlete, Chris Davenport. In the film, Davenport explores Colorado’s famed scenic and winding San Juan Skyway in a Bentley Continental GTC convertible.
