McLaren Automotive & Bentley Motors light up Saudi Arabia
Two of the world’s leading premium car manufacturers, McLaren Automotive and Bentley Motors, came together at the end of May for a joint media event to launch their new showrooms in Jeddah, the historic Saudi city of the Red Sea.
Both showrooms are run by Al Ghassan Motors, the retailer for both brands in Saudi Arabia, and are located in an eye-catching new building right in the heart of the Jeddah’s high end fashion district.
The launch marked the opening of McLaren Automotive’s very first showroom in the Kingdom, as well as a new and improved Bentley Motors showroom.
Top Saudi media were invited to attend and feast their eyes on Bentley’s luxurious fleet of cars, including the Mulsanne, Continental GT and Flying Spur, as well as McLaren Automotive’s debut high performance sports car, the innovative MP4-12C.
Bentley also flew in the Ice Speed Record-breaking Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible, which shattered the world speed record on sheet ice with a breath-taking speed of 330.695 Km/h. Upsatirs, McLaren’s celebrated MP4-13 was on display…the same car Mika Hakkinen drove to glory in the 1998 Formula One Championship, winning both the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship.
