Bentley Mulliner pays homage to the legendary Bathurst 12 Hour with two unique Continental GT S models. Created in collaboration with Bentley Sydney, a pair of special Bentleys inspired by the annual endurance race for GT and production cars, where Bentley was the winner in 2020 with its Continental GT3 racer.
The two cars have individual specifications. The first is inspired by the livery of the winning race car, with an exterior of bright Apple Green, contrasted by a Beluga black roof, wing mirrors, lower bumper and rear boot silhouette. The front visual also includes a number seven painted on the grille matrix, as per the racer. The Blackline Specification replaces all exterior bright chromework with polished black versions, and the Styling Specification (front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser in carbon fibre) offers an aggressive visual stance.
The cabin uses a mixture of Leather and Dinamica in Beluga with Apple Green accents via micro-piping and contrast stitch. ‘BATHURST’ has been stitched into the headrests and ‘One of Two’ can be seen on the treadplates. A unique metal overlay showcasing the track has been included in the carbon fibre technical finish fascias on the passenger side, and the names of the victorious drivers together with the winning number seven can be found on the centre console.
The second car is painted in Silver Tempest to reflect the introduction of the second-generation Continental GT3 that was launched in late 2017 and started competing in 2018. Car number two mirrors the first, with black chrome and the carbon fibre Styling Specification to the exterior and a bespoke cabin.
The new S range is powered by the 542 bhp (550 PS) and 770 Nm 4.0-litre V8 engine that delivers a time of just 4.0 seconds for 0-62 mph (100 km/h). For the GT and GTC S, the engine is enhanced by the fitment as standard of a Sports Exhaust to boost the crossplane V8 beat. The eager, free-revving and lighter 4.0-litre V8 engine gives the Continental GT S models a responsive and agile character, and this is amplified by Bentley Dynamic Ride.
