Bentley Motors is the most sought-after luxury car brand in the world, the company says. The company’s headquarters in Crewe, in the UK, is home to all of its operations including design, R&D, engineering and production of the company’s four model lines – Continental, Flying Spur, Bentayga and Mulsanne.
The combination of fine craftsmanship, using skills that have been handed down through generations, alongside engineering expertise and cutting-edge technology is unique to UK luxury car brands such as Bentley. An example of high-value British manufacturing at its best, Bentley employs around 4,000 people at its Crewe facilities.
The Saint Tropez Polo Club recently underwent a major revitalisation. Boasting stables and a prestigious polo school, the club also offers a state of the art fitness centre, swimming, tennis, and spa facilities, and can claim to be truly a world class centre of sporting excellence.
