Limited edition Bentley Continental GT praises its Pikes Peak record run

I love this green color.


This year, Bentley set a milestone on its 100th anniversary when a prepared Continental GT tackled the famous Pikes Peak climb. There, the British coupe set the new record for the fastest production car to handle the rise with a time of 10: 18488 – 8.4 seconds faster than the previous record.

Of course, the brand wants to celebrate the performance. On Tuesday, Bentley unveiled this limited edition of the Continental GT which has the same exterior color as the car that broke the record at Pikes Peak, a shade the company calls "Radium." There are also a few carbon fibers that make up the body kit. Glossy black accents find their way to the lower part of the front bumper, the roof and the mirrors.

True to the radiant green color, Bentley made the calipers in Acid Green and the Pirelli P Zero tires with lettering in the same radium color as the exterior. A Pikes Peak sticker is also located on the front of the bumper to remind those that this Continental GT honors a special moment for Bentley. Optionally, a "1

00" grille is available if you want to toast even more to Bentley's centenary.

The cockpit is of course a nice place. Alcantara washes over the cabin with radium paint, which is responsible for contrasting seams. The same contrasting color is found on the steering wheel, while carbon fiber and piano black inserts give the Continental GT a sporty feel that surpasses luxury. There is also a graphic on the passenger side of the dashboard showing part of the 20km Pikes Peak course.

Obviously, there is no V8 under the hood as the record car used the Bentley W12 engine. The huge power plant makes 626 hp.

Only 15 of these models are on offer and the order books are already open. Move best if you want to add to a collection of one of these coupes.
