A bespoke Bentley, in green. Obviously.
Few things in the automotive realm are more traditionally English than a Bentley finished in British racing green.
In an attempt to profit from this heritage, Bentley has released a new version of its latest Continental GT, called the Number 9 Edition. With a production run limited to only 100 units, these Continental GTs are built by the company’s on-site tailoring division, Mulliner.
The Number 9 Edition Continental GTs pay homage to those classic racing Bentleys of the interwar era. Rolling on 10-spoke alloy wheels, 21-inches in size, the Number 9 Edition is distinguished from other Continentals by its bold No.9 grille graphics and carbon-fibre body kit.
Most of the Mulliner craftsmanship has been applied to the Number 9 Edition cabin architecture and finishing. Seats are either green or black and handsewn from the very best hides available.
Gorgeous turned aluminium makes up most of the centre console's surfacing, while a classic British Jaeger analogue clock sits between the ventilation dials. Controlling those ventilation ducts are 18K gold plated organ stops.
Adding to the Number 9 Edition’s custom status is an encased wood insert, which has been mounted within the instrument binnacle. For each of the 100 Number 9 Edition cars, this wood insert has been removed from the seat of an original 1930 No.9 Bentley Le Mans race car. Very nice indeed...
