Bentley is no stranger to obscure special-edition models that only a select few people would actually shell out extra money for. Today, it has added to its collection of these models with the release of the Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series, which pays homage to the famed Breitling Jet Team.
Creating this special model starts with a base Continental GT Speed, then Bentley adds in a special tri-tone paintjob to match that of the seven jets. This includes a Hallmark topcoat and an Oxyx bottom coat on the body, and a Breitling’s iconic yellow on the ground effects.
This color combo continues inside the Continental GT Speed, as the Bentley has an all-black leather interior with bright-yellow highlights and contrast stitching. Also included inside this limited-run Continental is a carbon-fiber fascia on the dashboard that features etchings of the seven jets, with the jet that each particular car represents highlighted in yellow.
Rounding out the interior mods are yellow logos and graphics for the headrests and individually numbered doorsill plates.
Powering the Continental GT Speed is a 6.0-liter W-12 that lays down 626 horsepower and 605 pound-feet of torque. All this power treks to the back wheels through an eight-speed auto transmission and launches the big coupe to 60 mph in just four seconds. Top speed checks in at 206 mph, which is 359 mph slower than the top speed of the jets that inspired this special model.
Bentley will limit these special models to just seven units, which pays homage to the seven Breitling Jets. There is no mention of pricing, but chances are they will be sold out before Bentley even has the opportunity to announce the official MSRP.
These seven special Bentleys will make their debut at the Breitling Jet performance in Seattle, WA on July 31st, 2015.
