Bentley bespoke Continental GT S celebrates Bathurst race win

Bentley has unveiled two special edition Continental GT S models built in-house by Mulliner.

Inspired by Bentley’s success at the Bathurst 12 Hours in Australia, the 2020 Continental GT3 claimed the overall title.

The company’s bespoke arm, Mulliner, has been in charge of designing both cars, each with unique specifications.

Mulliner’s collaboration with Bentley Sydney is to celebrate the launch of the Continental GT S in Australia.

The first-ever Continental GT S was painted in bright Apple Green, with Beluga Black on the roof, door mirrors, lower bumper and boot outline. The number 7 is painted on the mesh front grille, the same as the winning Continental GT3 race car.

Blackline specification replaces all chrome exterior trim with gloss black, while the interior features a combination of leather and Dinamica fabric.

Salute to an epic victory

The black interior is accented with apple green accents, including “Bathurst” stitched into the headrests.

Maps of famous circuits sit atop the carbon-fiber dashboard trim, with the names of winning drivers on the center console.

The second Bentley Continental GT S was painted in Silver Tempest, a color intended to reflect the first-generation GT3 race car. As with the Apple Green example, Blackline specs are used for the exterior, with similar bespoke cabin finishes.

Demand for bespoke Bentleys grows

Each Bentley Continental GT S will come with a framed souvenir and a 1:18 scale model of the winning car.

Mulliner has retained the turbocharged 4.0-litre V8, which means an output of 550hp is not insignificant. A sports exhaust enhances the soundtrack, while standard all-wheel drive allows for a 0-62 mph time of just 4.0 seconds.

Bentley’s Mulliner division celebrated a major milestone in 2022, building 500 bespoke cars in 12 months. This includes a reborn Bentley Blower, as well as numerous bespoke cars for wealthy clients.
