Last night, we had the opportunity to unveil the all-new Bentley Bentayga to a number of our close friends and customers.
The Bentley Bentayga is the first SUV from the British automaker but still maintains all of the company’s luxurious DNA. With 600 HP and 660 ft-lbs of torque, the Bentayga is claimed to be the fastest production SUV in the world, hitting 60 MPH from rest in just 4.0-seconds and surging ahead to a top speed of 187 MPH. Despite having so much power on tap, inside the Bentayga takes SUVs to a whole new class of luxury with huge swathes of leather, wood, and metal throughout. The Bentayga also leads the way with technology, featuring 4G LTE WiFi, a pair of Android OS tablets for backseat passengers, a full-color head-up display, and a night vision mode. Of course, the trick air suspension system helps to make the Bentayga just as good off-road as on.
We can’t wait to start taking delivery early next year!
With much build-up and anticipation, we are excited to announce the grand opening of the new Morrie’s Luxury Auto store at 7300 Wayzata Blvd in Golden Valley. To celebrate the occasion, we welcomed 300 of our clients, friends and neighbors to our new location with food, drinks, music and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. We rolled out the red carpet for our guests and also had representatives from Aston Martin, Bentley, and Maserati to check out our new store.
Highlights from the event included the Hairstream trailer (where we had two hair stylists from Jon Charles Pure Salon on hand), a cigar lounge with hand-rolled cigars, 3 signature cocktails (the “Alfieri”, the “Azure”, and the “Vulcan”), as well as Chris Dyson’s actual Bentley GT3-R race car from the Pirelli World Challenge that we saw win at Road America this summer.
This new location in Golden Valley has been in the works for almost 5 years, and we’re thrilled to have the new Luxury Autos store sitting alongside our Cadillac building. The new building offers 3 distinct show floors to showcase Maserati, Bentley, and Aston Martin and we have the largest elevator in the Midwest to move vehicles up to the 2nd floor.
Our event was a wild success but we couldn’t have done any of this without the support of our customers. Thank all of you who have supported us over the years as we strive to provide the ultimate in luxury experiences in Minneapolis.
Keep an eye on our Instagram for more photos from the event.

We’re proud to announce that we recently transitioned from our showroom in Minnetonka to our brand new, state of the art facility at 7300 Wayzata Blvd in Golden Valley. We now have separate show floors for Maserati, Bentley, and Aston Martin, and the dealership features on of the largest elevators in the Midwest! Stop by during business hours (Monday through Thursday: 8:00AM to 9:00PM, Friday and Saturday: 8:00AM to 6:00PM) and check out the new space.
With the new Morrie’s Luxury Auto location opening in just 11 short days (July 27th), we’re excited to share some photos of the progress being made!
New signage is up for Maserati and hopefully Bentley and Aston Martin logos will grace the building soon as well.
We can’t wait for customers to start using our new service drive.
The show floor is coming along nicely as well. Being two stories tall, the new Morrie’s Luxury Autos facility features one of the largest elevators in the midwest.
This is part of the Maserati lounge area where customers can find various Maserati accessories.
And this is the Bentley side of the show floor. The various displays are used to immerse customers in luxury, showcase vehicles, and allow customers to configure their own Bentley while looking at every available color, leather, wood, and stitching sample.
We hope to see you in our new store soon!
Dyson Racing, Bentley’s factory backed race team in the Pirelli World Challenge series, took to the track at Road America in Plymouth, WI this past weekend with two of their Continental GT3-R race cars. Bentley was also kind enough to extend an offer to some of our clients to join them for the weekend at the track to watch the race. We booked a private plane and luxury lodging and Bentley handled the rest, providing cars for us to drive to and from the track, a catered hospitality suite to watch the race from, as well as integrating us with the crew and drivers in the paddock.
For those that missed out, VIP accommodations for this trip included:
- Private airfare
- 2 nights at The American Club in Kohler, WI
- All food and beverages
- A round of golf on the famous Whistling Straits course, home of the 2015 PGA Championship
- Bentley vehicles, including a Continental GTC Speed, a Flying Spur V8s, a Mulsanne Speed, and a Continental GT3-R
- Complimentary tickets to the Pirelli World Challenge race at Road America
- VIP parking and access to the Bentley hospitality suite
- Private paddock tours and meet and greets with the crew and drivers
Everyone on the trip had a great time and we look forward to planning similar trips alongside Bentley for our customers in the future.

After teasing the Bentayga SUV for so long, many speculated that Bentley would finally reveal the production model in Geneva this week. Instead, they surprised everyone with a new concept car: the 2-seater EXP 10 Speed 6. While the name is a little long-winded, its sleek styling and elegant detailing are stunning. While Bentley has not yet confirmed any details regarding production, cost, or specs, speculation indicates this will be targeted at the Ferrari F12 and Aston Martin Vanquish.
The Los Angeles Auto Show during the media press days is an extremely overwhelming, congested and an all out nightmare to navigate. That being said press days are some of the best times you can have at an auto show with all the new releases, food and media crews running every which way. With the vast amounts of luxury exotic vehicles, new models and some of the highest quality concept vehicles in the world it is certainly something to experience. More >
