Bentley’s refreshed model portfolio is being crowned with a new ultimate version of the Continental GT Mulliner, to sit at the pinnacle of its two-door grand tourers. It features an enhanced W12 engine and advanced chassis.
The GT Mulliner W12 is the most powerful, fastest, most dynamic and most luxurious Continental GT yet created, combining the performance and dynamism of the Speed, the
comfort of the Azure and the magic touch and artistic flair of Mulliner handcraftsmanship.
Its W12 TFSI engine delivers 485kW of power, resulting in a top speed of 335km/h, and a 0-100km/h time of just 3.6 seconds. Electronic all-wheel steering enhances the dynamic nature of the Continental GT Mulliner W12 in each of its driving modes too.
Unique 22-inch wheels feature self-levelling badges which ensure the Bentley ‘B’ remains vertical at all times. The cabin is one defined by luxury, and showcases a level of choice and customisation unseen across the rest of the range.
A unique colour split is exclusive to the car, with a new combination of primary and secondary hide joined by a third colour through a flowing design line. Eight different three-colour combinations are on offer – with 88 Piano wood veneers.
“Diamond in Diamond” quilting to the seats, door trims and rear quarter panels is made up of almost 400,000 stitches with each diamond containing exactly 712 individual stitches. Naturally these are available in a spectrum of coloured threads too.
On the outside, a suite of exclusive exterior design features separate this car from the rest of the family. At the front, the new ‘Double Diamond’ matrix grille defines the new Mulliner signature style, complemented by matching front fender vents.
All of these features are available either with a bright chrome or with the more contemporary gloss black appeal of Mulliner Blackline specification. Approaching and opening either door reveals the other exclusive design features.
These include mirror caps in either satin silver or black with Mulliner welcome lamps beneath, and illuminated outer door sills with Mulliner text. The new GT Mulliner W12 made its debut at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend.
