The Barrack Road site is one of 10 bosyhops in the UK to be approved by Bentley.
Kevin Richardson, Carl and Earl manager, said: “People like to deal with people they know and we now provide a comprehensive BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Mini and Bentley experience in the context of a family run business.
“Our ambition is to work with Bentley Newcastle and create absolute customer delight and care for their cars and I believe that Bentley Newcastle and Carr and Earl have the right teams to do it.”
Richardson believes the £1m investment in areas of the business like preparation, finishing, cosmetic repairs, workshop standards, staff expertise and customer satisfaction helped to gain manufacturer approval.
