This is the new Continental GT Limited Edition. The Continental GT broke the record for the fastest production car to tackle the Pikes Peak Hill Climb run back in June. There will be a special run of only 15 examples made.
The new limited edition is painted in Radium by Mulliner paintwork – this is the same colour scheme as the record breaking car. It has a carbon fibre body kit with gloss black added to the lower front inserts, door mirrors and roof.
There are also Gloss Black 22 inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels, Pirelli P Zero Colour Edition tyres and the brake calipers are in an Acid Green colour.
Customers can order the car with the optional “100” grille as a reminder of Bentley’s centenary year.
Inside, the Limited Edition Continental GT has Radium stitching with Pikes Peak embroidered within the headrests and Pikes Peak sill plates.
On the passenger’s side of the of the dashboard there is a graphic showing a section of the Pikes Peak track with the record time of 10:18:488 on it. There will be 5 different graphics of the track being used on the 15 car run.
