Bentley has launched a new CPO program designed to give used car buyers confidence in their purchase.

Honda has one. Toyota too. Now Bentley Motors has launched a certified pre-owned program (CPO) that the luxury automaker says, "offers buyers complete peace of mind, an exclusive certificate of authenticity, and opens the door to the extraordinary world of Bentley itself."

Called "Certified by Bentley" the business model is similar to other CPO programs. Each used vehicle that comes into the Bentley dealership to be readied for sale will be given a technical inspection, then it's fully serviced using only genuine Bentley parts. Each Certified by Bentley purchase comes with a comprehensive 12 months warranty that can be further extended should the buyer choose.

The vehicles each also receive a certificate of authenticity, which provides evidence of where it was manufactured and a full service history.

"When a customer selects a Certified by Bentley car, they are making an investment in a brand that has always crafted extraordinary vehicles," said Mark Keeping, Head of Pre-Owned at Bentley Motors. "The exceptional quality of every car, means that whether new or Certified by Bentley, owning a Bentley is a wise decision."

Bently is touting the cost savings buyers will experience with the new program. "Costs of ownership are lower than might otherwise be expected, making owning a Bentley an option for a wider number of potential customers," said Keeping. "And every car hand-built at our headquarters in Crewe, England, meets the same exquisite standards regardless of when it was built."

Additionally, buyers who purchase Certified by Bentley products also receive access to exclusive events around the world, a Bentley Factory Tour, and a subscription to the Bentley Magazine among other benefits.

The Bentley Centenary celebrates the last 100 years of Bentley design, and the next 100.

There's best friends, and then there's this best friend. It's a diamond with nearly flawless clarity, exquisitely cut and mounted for maximum sparkle. With a VS2 purity rating and Very Good cut, the 20.08-carat Bentley Centenary yellow diamond is a collector's piece for the ultimate luxury buyer.

Harvested from the African landscape, the design of the Bentley Centenary diamond's journey from ground to showroom was influenced by Bentley designer Chris Cooke, who created the original designs for the gold and platinum settings. He took inspiration from Bentley's EXP 100 GT concept car.

The final design of the piece was entrusted to expert Master Goldsmiths at Heinz Mayer in Idar-Oberstein, Germany.

The diamond rests in a platinum and 18-karat gold setting and hangs at the bottom of a chain. There are 106 diamonds on the pendant - 20 on the chain, 30 under the center stone, and 56 in the surrounding setting. Underneath the pendant is the Bentley 100 Extraordinary Years logo. The Bentley emblem and inscriptions of diamond weight, clarity and serial number are engraved on the chain's plaque.

Platinum wing-like shapes hold the cradle where the large stone rests. The Italian platinum chain consists of sections that have been cut then welded and soldered back together with 18 karat gold mountings. The chain itself holds 20 white round natural brilliant cut diamonds. The chain can be worn at either 42 cm or 45 cm.

The design, cutting, mounting, and polishing process took weeks to complete. When it was complete and the work was approved by all involved, the moulds created for the project were destroyed, ensuring that the piece is truly one of one.
