FRANKFURT -- Bentley says it is recalling 27,640 cars globally because of potentially faulty battery cable connections.

The recall affects all Continental GT, GTC and Flying Spur models built between February 2011 and June 2014, a spokesman told Automotive News Europe.

A bolted connection for a battery cable joint could be loose where it passes through the front bulkhead on some of the cars, the spokesman said.

Bentley will replace the components with a new connection system for all vehicles, which will take approximately two hours per car to fit, the spokesman said.

Bentley said the recall was voluntary.

The number of recalled vehicles, more than double Bentley's record 11,020 deliveries last year, includes 5,906 cars in China, the brand's second-biggest market after the Americas, the automaker said.
