The NHTSA has issued a recall for classic Bentley Arnage, Azure and Brooklands models manufactured between 2007 and 2009, all models that were recently replaced by the Mulsanne indirectly. The retractable ‘Flying B’ bonnet ornament may corrode to the point that it doesn’t retract in the event of a crash. The agency is worried this could be dangerous for pedestrians when they get run over.
A total of 596 units are affected by the recall as the retractable Flying B is an optional accessory, and Bentley says that it will replace the faulty mechanism free of charge. The work is set to commence on or around September 27, and owners can call Bentley directly for more information.
