Cette édition limitée ne sera fabriquée qu'à 15 exemplaires.

Une nouvelle édition spéciale célèbre le record de la Bentley Continental GT au 'Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 2019'. La marque britannique ne va fabriquer que 15 unités de ce modèle.

Cette Continental GT très spéciale est disponible dans sa livrée exclusive 'Radium green' conçue par Mulliner. Cette couleur apparaît également sur les pneus Pirelli P Zero qui entourent des jantes de 22 pouces. Il existe également des étriers de frein 'Acid Green'. Un kit de carrosserie en fibre de carbone et une garniture noire brillante donnent du contraste à la carrosserie qui attire définitivement le regard. Les clients peuvent également opter en option pour le '100' qui sera disposé sur la calandre. Il marque le centenaire du constructeur.

À l'intérieur, cette Continental GT bénéficie d'un mélange de cuir et d'Alcantara. Une broderie 'Pikes Peak 'apparaît sur les appuis-tête. La console centrale a une finition noir piano et des garnitures en fibre de carbone sont présentes dans le reste de l'habitacle. Du côté passager, on notera la présence d'une portion de parcours de Pikes Peak différente d'une voiture à une autre. 

Cette Continental GT s'offre le même W12 de 6,0 litres que l'on retrouve sous le capot des autres Continental GT. Ce bloc offre une puissance de plus de 600 chevaux et un couple de 900 Nm. Cela permet au véhicule d'atteindre une vitesse de 96 km/h en 3,6 secondes et une vitesse de pointe de 333 km/h.

Bentley a ouvert son carnet de commandes pour cette édition spéciale. La marque ne divulgue en revanche pas le prix de cette édition limitée, qui dépasse largement les 200'000 euros.

LIMITED EDITION CONTINENTAL GT CELEBRATES BENTLEY'S PIKES PEAK RECORD

Celebrates Bentley’s record-breaking run up world-renowned course
W12-powered Continental GT beat coveted International Hill Climb record by just over eight seconds in June

(Crewe, 3 December 2019) Bentley has announced details of a striking Continental GT Limited Edition that celebrates a record-breaking automotive achievement from earlier in the British marque’s centenary year. The run of special coupes is restricted to just 15 examples and honours Bentley’s accomplishment at the demanding International Hill Climb event in the USA in June.

The world’s finest Grand Tourer shaved an impressive 8.4 seconds off the existing record for the 12.42-mile course in Colorado, making it the fastest production car ever at Pikes Peak. Driven by three-time champion, former ‘King of the Mountain’ Rhys Millen, the W12-powered Continental GT climbed almost 5,000 ft through 156 bends in just ten minutes, 18.4 seconds.

Chris Craft, Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales at Bentley Motors, said:

“The new Limited Edition Continental GT is distinguished by a number of carefully curated features to honour that outstanding record run. It reflects Bentley’s spirit of endeavour, one that has been a constant throughout the last 100 years and remains at the beating heart of the company.”

The celebratory model is available to order from December 2019.

A Striking Limited Edition

The new Limited Edition is distinguished by a carbon fibre body kit and eye-catching Radium by Mulliner paintwork, mirroring the colour scheme used on the record-breaking car. Gloss black detailing has also been added to the front lower bumper inserts, roof panel, wing mirrors and rear surfaces.

Acid Green brake disc callipers, Pirelli P Zero Colour Edition tyres in Radium Finish and a Pikes Peak decal to the front bumper hint at the Limited Edition’s record-breaking lineage, while 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels in Gloss Black are standard. An optional ‘100’ grille is a reminder that the Continental GT’s impressive hill climb achievement took place in Bentley’s centenary year.

Inside the cabin, Alcantara with contrasting Radium thread stitching adorns much of the soft trim areas, matched with Beluga secondary hide. The steering wheel features a honeycomb stitching design and a centre stripe both in Radium, as per the Pikes Peak GT race car. Carbon fibre fascias and wasitrails are complemented by a Piano Black centre console, all adding to the sporting theme. The passenger-side fascia features a graphic showing a section of the Pikes Peak track, with five different graphics being used across the 15-car run, along with the record-setting time of 10:18.488.

Pikes Peak embroidery to the seat headrests in Radium stitching, Pikes Peak treadplates and exclusive B&O speaker covers in Black Anodised and Radium finish further enhance the interior appeal. The Continental GT’s luxurious cabin includes the ground-breaking Bentley Rotating Display, deep pile overmats and Front Seat Comfort Specification.

Like the Continental GT that broke the Pikes Peak record earlier this year, this new model features the world’s most advanced 12-cylinder petrol engine in the twin-turbocharged Bentley W12. This mighty engine develops 626 bhp and 900 Nm of torque, effortlessly accelerating the Continental GT from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds), with a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph).
