Bentley pays homage to British roots with 2018 Continental GT First Special Edition

While car media outlets are busy keeping tabs on what’s happening at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, apparently, something hotter has been brewing in Crewe England after Bentley uncovered its new 2018 Continental GT First Special Edition. At a time when the first batch of the 3rd generation Continental GT has not yet reached the homes of their rightful owners, we have to say this is something we least expected.

Regardless, Bentley’s Continental GT has been customized by the British marque’s design team to create the ultimate grand tourer of all time — the First Edition. It features a rotating display that lets you switch between three various panels. Depending on what suits your mood, its built-in 12.3-inch touch screen can be swapped with another instrument display that offers three analog dials or if the engine is turned off, the next option showcases a panel display that offers unobstructed view of the dashboard.

Bentley’s First Edition is also offered with four distinctively premium dual tone veneers for its Grand Black dashboard that suits any of the four veneer colors available --- Dark Fiddleback Eucaplyptus, Dark Stained Madrona, Liquid Amber, and the Tamo Ash veneer finish.

Bentley has finally revealed the new Continental GT a few weeks before it makes its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, and CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer is more than proud of it, describing it as the “pinnacle” of their engineering and design achievements. He continues to say that the brand defines new luxury in the automotive industry.

The English automaker focuses on combining the latest technology with classic effects as their customers demand that.

For those who are keen on personalizing their Continental GT, Bentley is proud to say that they have a wide array of options for you. For the exterior paint alone, you can choose from as many as 17 colours, with up to 70 hues. As for the interior, there are 8 different handcrafted designs, and 15 options for the interior trim hide.

Bentley pays homage to the Continental GT with limited edition Timeless Series

If there is one model that British carmaker Bentley could pay tribute to, it must be the Continental GT grand tourer. After all, the Continental GT is the first model that Bentley has launched since it became a part of the Volkswagen Group. When it was introduced in 2003, the Continental GT marked the renaissance of the marque, and became the first Bentley to employ volume production methods.

Thus, 14 years after the introduction of the first model – and right on the heels of the launch of a new generation of the beloved grand tourer from the United Kingdom – Bentley is unveiling a special edition that pays tribute to the Continental GT itself: the Continental GT Timeless Series. As its moniker indicates, the limited edition model presents how timeless the Continental GT has been for the British carmaker, even after 14 years of existence.

Essentially, the Timeless Series is derived from the Continental GT Convertible, but has been made more contemporary and more luxurious with the addition of an array of exquisite features and design options. Bentley hasn’t said how exclusive – in terms of the number of examples – the Timeless Series is, but as a limited edition, this droptop offers a number of elements that distinguishes it from a typical Continental GT Convertible. For instance, the Timeless Series features bright upper and lower front grilles as complemented by the Timeless Series badges and tread plates.

Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene looks very much like a yacht

Would you like your convertible to be inspired by a yacht? Well, you do not have to imagine it anymore - thanks to the Bentley Continental GT Convertible and Mulliner for building one. With its size and opulence, there is no doubt that a yacht would enter your mind when seeing this model. This was made possible by Mulliner, which gave it the Galene Edition treatment. Overall, it has a droptop just like that of a yacht. In case you were wondering, Galene is a very apt name as it’s from the Greek goddess of calm seas.

For Mulliner to achieve this look, they had to work with Princess Yachts for some design cues that are necessary. For instance, the Continental GT Convertible was finished in a Glacier White paint that is accented with a Sequin Blue stripe on the lower end of the car, matching the dark blue roof. The convertible is equipped with a set of 21-inch polished Propeller Wheels.

The interior has plenty more design elements that you would associate with yachts. The cabin is made of a combination of Linen, Portland, Brunel, and Camel tinted leather - creams, taupes and nudes that will make you feel like you’re on a high-end boat. This is complemented by the cabin’s trim in the same Glacier White paint. There is even a hand-painted image of the super yacht on the dashboard for more detail, which was made by illustrator Jaume Vilardell. The trunk floor is more unconventional this time, with the open-pore Pinstripe Walnut finish. You can also find the same finish on the center stack and around the gearshift.

Bentley Motorsport has hit the headlines with the announcement of its entry into the 2017 Nurburgring 24 hour race. At the same time, it revealed a new, bespoke, limited edition Continental that will be joining the race – it’s dubbed as the Continental 24.

The GT3 will be participating at the endurance ADAC Zurich 24-Hour Race on the Nurburgring, along with two other cars from Bentley Team ABT - all three cars will be running on Yokohama tires. To celebrate this milestone, the Continental 24 was built. We are aware that an all-new Bentley Continental GT is coming very soon, but today, all the attention is on the Continental 24. The Supersports ranger topper is dressed in a Monaco Yellow and Black Crystal combination inspired by the company’s own track-only GT3.

The model is created exclusively for the European market. If the yellow and black colour combination is not your style, you can choose the St James’ Red and Black Crystal finish, or a simpler single-tone paint scheme as an option. The limited edition model will be equipped with a set of 21-inch alloy wheels with either yellow or red accents, depending on the body’s finish. To give it some exterior accents, there will be carbon fiber door mirror caps, black body accents, and brake calipers all in a darker hue.

Yeah, right! As you can see from the photos, the vehicle comes with a new body kit. If the front end is destroyed with an ugly grille, some headlights covers and new fenders, the rear end features some taillights probably borrowed from a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.

Bentley put the drivetrain from the Continental GT Speed into the Convertible, creating what it has proclaimed as the fastest four-seat drop-top in the world. Bentley estimates that this car has a top speed of 202mph, which makes it 3mph slower than the GT Speed coupé but makes it faster than the old Bentley Speed Convertible by 7mph.

The car is equipped with the twin turbo 6.0-litre W12, enabling the car to have an output of 616bhp and 590lb ft. As a result, the car can accelerate from zero to 60mph in 4.1 seconds. The torque is available from 2000rpm and persists until 5000rpm. It can reach 100mph in 9.7sec. When the engine is used in the Convertible, the fuel economy improves by 15% to return 19mpg. Just like the Speed GT, the suspension was lowered by 10mm compared to the regular GT.

This is due to its stiffer bushes, upgraded anti-roll bars and modified air springs and dampers. The steering was reworked to offer better feedback. The convertible’s increase in top speed wasn’t the result of many improvements in aerodynamics in order to boost downforce. According to Bentley, a soft lip on the bootlid is sufficient for maintaining the car on the road.
