Bentley Motors’ has been wrapped over the knuckles for an advertising video featuring a high-speed run in the Northern Territory.

In a determination handed down last month by the Advertising Standards Board (ASB), the short video featuring a Bentley Continental GT Speed driven by racer John Bowe at speeds in excess of 330km/h on the derestricted (and closed) section of the Stuart Highway, was found to breach the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) Advertising for Motor Vehicles Voluntary Code of Practice.

The ASB found that although the video did not depict “driving practice that would breach the law”, it did show “unsafe driving” and “breaking the speed limit”.

"... The speed reached by the Bentley in the advertisement of 206 miles per hour (331 km per hour) ‘would breach the law of any State or Territory in the relevant jurisdiction in which the advertisement is published or broadcast dealing with road safety or traffic regulation, if such driving were to occur on a road or road-related area."
Not sure how they are breaking the speed limit if there is no limit on that stretch of road

May as well ban anything over 110km/h then
