“This year’s event will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Bentley, a marque defined by the elegance and excellence that surrounds you on Rodeo Drive,” said Bruce Meyer, Chairman of the Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance. “We’re proud to celebrate the history and craftsmanship of Bentley on its 100th anniversary. As one of the world’s most respected luxury and performance brands, there is a natural link between Bentley and the iconic Rodeo Drive. Our Father’s Day event will showcase the best of the best from around the world.”
Bentley is renowned today as one of the world’s foremost builders of luxury grand tourers and SUVs, and the marque’s 100-year history includes a litany of successes to add to that resume. From its dominance in racing including six overall victories at the 24 hours of Le Mans to its timeless designs and revolutionary engineering achievements – Bentley has reshaped the auto industry over the last century and has earned its place on Rodeo Drive on June 16.
