THE first of a limited run of 15 examples of the Pikes Peak Continental GT by Mulliner has been built at Bentley’s factory, and features exclusive Radium paintwork, a carbon fibre body kit, Acid Green brake calipers, and Pirelli P Zero Colour Edition tyres.
Five of them will also include the optional mountain decal, as worn by the record breaking vehicle. All 15 feature an Alcantara interior complemented by distinctive Radium contrast stitching and accents.
Carbon fibre fascias and waistrails include a Pikes Peak overlay on the passenger fascia, and exclusive B&O speaker covers in black anodised and Radium finish.
Peter Bosch, Member of the Board for Manufacturing, comments:
“Bentley has always built cars that are a magical combination of bespoke craftsmanship and everyday usability,” Bentley spokesperson Peter Bosch said.
“With Mulliner, we have increased the boundaries of our production system through bespoke highly personalised products and small series limited editions.”
Celebrating the record-breaking run of a standard Continental GT at the famous Pikes Peak International Hill Climb last year, where the production car record was bettered by eight seconds, the Pikes Peak Continental GT is a striking limited edition.
All 15 vehicles are already sold, with customer deliveries due to begin in September, and destined for locations across the globe from New Zealand to America. Each one honours Bentley’s accomplishment at the most demanding hill climb in the world.
Other features on the celebratory model include Pikes Peak embroidery to the seat headrests in Radium stitching, Radium contrast binding on the overmats, and Pikes Peak tread plates.
Like the Continental GT that broke the Pikes Peak record last year, this new model features the world’s most advanced 12-cylinder petrol engine in the twin-turbocharged Bentley W12.
This mighty engine develops 467kW of power and 900Nm of torque, effortlessly accelerating the Continental GT from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 333km/h.
