Bentley rolls out a couple of unique Continental GT S models
The Bentley office in Sydney and the in-house tuner Mulliner have built a pair of Continental GT S coupes commemorating the marque’s triumph at the Bathurst 12-Hour race three years ago.
One of the cars comes finished in a bright shade of green and the other one in silver. Both wear special trim pieces, but are otherwise identical. Dark chrome and carbon fiber are used all around, and the radiator grille flaunts the number 7, referencing the winning racecar number. Both examples are accompanied by a 1:18 replica of the original racecar.
The interior is largely dark with lighter green accents. The headrests sport the endurance race name, and the front panel carries on it the names of the pilots, the number 7 and the map of the circuit. There is even a commemorative plaque ‘1 of 2’ on the off chance that somebody needs reminding that there are only two such vehicles in the entire world.
A four-liter, twin-turbo V8 under the hood makes 550 PS (542 hp / 404 kW) and 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) of torque. Getting to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes four seconds. The exhaust system was upgraded to a sportier one and other minor modifications were made.
