A new state-of-the-art engineering test facility, built at the headquarters of Bentley Motors in Crewe, is nearing completion following an official ‘topping out’ ceremony.
When it opens in 2021, the facility will cover more than 4600 sq m over two storeys. Included will be a climate-controlled chassis dynamometer, operating across temperatures from -10°C to +40°C. There will also be a dedicated laboratory to run RDE (real driving emissions) using the latest portable emissions measurement systems. Bentley’s Technical Conformity department will be based in the test centre, with over 100 people working in the building.
