deluxewords takes the fast lane in China with Bentley magazine


Hong Kong-based deluxewords has been awarded a contract to create a new Chinese edition of Bentley Motors customer magazine in China. The new title will be produced in association with Bentley Motors China, and FMS, the UK-based publisher of Bentley’s English-languagemagazine.

deluxewords is the publishing arm of Deluxe Holdings Limited and was founded in December 2010 by Daniel Jeffreys, formerly New York correspondent for BBC TV News and the Daily Mail, editor-in-chief of the SCMP’s Post Magazine and Managing Editor of Hong Kong Tatler.

“We are delighted that deluxewords will be producing the Chinese edition of Bentley magazine,” says Julia Marozzi, Head of Lifestyle Communications at Bentley Motors Ltd and the editor in chief of Bentley magazine. “deluxewords is a perfect partner to create exciting content for our Chinese customers and to reflect the lifestyles of this important market for our world-renowned cars.”

The tailor-made version of Bentley magazine will have a strong focus on China and the Bentley China client base, which currently has over 6500 owners.

Half of the new magazine’s contents will be drawn from the English language edition of Bentley but with considerable localization, while the rest of the content will be sourced from the luxury car maker’s packed calendar of events and launches in the Greater China region.

Bentley magazine joins Quintessentially Asia, SIGNED and The Fashionable Truth in the deluxewords stable of print and digital products.

“Bentley Motor Cars is one of the most admired luxury brands in the world and one of the most successful in China,” says Jeffreys. “With a global reputation for outstanding quality they could have picked any publishing company to create their new Chinese title. We are very proud that they have chosen deluxewords.”

The new Bentley magazine will have an initial print run of 10,000 copies and will take advertising from luxury brands. The English language edition currently includes Chopard, Ralph Lauren, Franck Muller and Breitling as brand partners. Advertising sales will be coordinated by the deluxewords team in Hong Kong and Beijing. The magazine will have its official launch at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show on April 20th, 2013.

“This is going to be an important year for Bentley in China and there could not be a better moment for the launch of a Chinese edition of Bentley magazine,” says Till Scheer, Managing Director of Bentley Motors Greater China. “We have scheduled 12 new dealership openings in Greater China in March and April and on March 9 we will commence a one week China launch of the new Bentley Continental GT Speed at Shanghai’s Formula 1 track, with over 300 customers from all over China. That will be followed by the launch of the new Flying Spur in April at the Shanghai Motor Show.”

Apart from distribution to Bentley owners in Greater China the new magazine will also appear in Bentley dealerships throughout the country. The magazine’s content will be in Simplified Chinese. deluxewords already publishes a Simplified Chinese version of Quintessentially Asia magazine that reaches 15,000 millionaire households through a distribution network that includes China’s two largest private wealth management companies.
