Art Deco, the eclectic design consisting of mathematic and geometric shapes, was born in Paris in the 1920s and flourished throughout the WWI and WWII eras, and therefore its fitting that the Bentley Art Deco-inspired cars debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
The British automaker presented the Phantom Drophead Coupé, Phantom Saloon and Ghost models, which were created to pay homage to the 1925 Paris Exhibition or Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, the exhibition that originated the “Art Deco” namesake.
Art Deco has inspired almost all areas of design, and at its peak, it represented glamour, luxury, elegance, functionality and modernity—a reputation it shares with the Bentley brand. The three cars come finished in period-correct color schemes.
