Morgan and Bentley debuts at Motorclassica 

Legendary British car manufacturers Morgan

and Bentley will present major new model

debuts at Motorclassica, the Australian

International Concours d’Elegance and

Classic Motor Show in Melbourne next week.

Bentley Motors will stage the Victorian show

debut of its new Mulsanne and Morgan will

give the Aero SuperSports its first Australian

showing at the Royal Exhibition Building

from 22 to 24 October.

Both cars made international debuts at similar

concours d’elegance events in Europe and the

USA, and they will present their cars to the

public at Motorclassica’s Supercar Central.

Motorclassica event director Paul Mathers

said the elegance, beauty and performance represented by Motorclassica made the perfect

setting for the two iconic British brands to show their latest offerings.

“Bentley Motors launched the Mulsanne last year at Pebble Beach, so it’s fitting that its first

public showing in Victoria should be at the nearest thing Australia has ever had to that

wonderful event,” he said.

“Bentley Motors will be showing two cars which effectively ‘bookend’ its range – its biggest

and most luxurious car in the Mulsanne and the hardest, fastest and most extreme car it has

ever built in the form of the Continental Supersports.

“For those who love their Bentleys, we will have almost an embarrassment of riches, with

several ‘WO’ Bentleys plus beautiful classics from both Derby and Crewe.”

Morgan will have just the one car at Motorclassica – but what a car! This is the very first

Aero SuperSports in Australia and the first time it has ever been seen in this country 

Mr Mathers said the arrival of the new Morgan was an unexpected bonus for Motorclassica.

“With less than two weeks to go, the car has now arrived and cleared Customs, and we are

delighted to have it as part of Supercar Central at Motorclassica,” he said.

Underneath the sensational styling of the SuperSports lurks a serious and sophisticated race

tested all-aluminium chassis and a high performance V8-engined sports car from the 101-

year-old Morgan Motor Company.

“The Aero SuperSports is the final evolution of the successful Aero range, and is a Limited

Edition model with just 175 to be built.

“Its extraordinary combination of tradition and technology makes it the perfect complement

for our other supercars, including such legendary cars as the McLaren F1 and Jaguar XJ220.

“These cars remind us that a car need not be old to be a classic – the Morgan and Bentley are

brand new models, and yet they are true modern classics from the very beginning, embodying

all the character that has made them two of the world’s most admired marques.”
