Bentley Mulliner is finishing work on the first Pikes Peak Continental GT limited edition car.

British brand Bentley celebrates record performance on the world famous race in the clouds – in June 2019, the Bentley Continental GT W12 surpassed the previous record result in the International Hill Climb by more than 8 seconds. In this regard, the company will release only 15 copies of the new Bentley Pikes Peak Continental GT. Several cars in the series will be adorned with Pikes Peak livery – the same as on the record car

The first of 15 Pikes Peak Continental GT limited edition cars from Mulliner is built at Bentley’s Crewe plant in the UK with zero carbon emissions.

The special edition cars feature Mulliner’s exclusive Radium yellow-green exterior, carbon fiber trims, Acid Green brake calipers and Pirelli P Zero Color Edition tires. About a third of the Pikes Peak Continental GTs will feature the iconic Pikes Peak image on the body – the same as the record car. The interior of the vehicles is finished in Alcantara with contrasting stitching in Radium. The interior features carbon fiber elements on the dash and doors, as well as exclusive Bang & Olufsen speaker grilles with black anodized finish and Radium details. On the passenger side, the dashboard features the Pikes Peak emblem.

“The Bentley brand, throughout its history, has created vehicles that harmoniously combine the highest craftsmanship with exceptional everyday comfort. Through our partnership with Mulliner, we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible in our production to create new custom vehicles and special limited editions, ”said Peter Bosch, Bentley Motors Board Member responsible for production.

The seamless integration of the atelier into high-tech manufacturing ensures that the automaker is guaranteed the Mulliner exclusivity and customer experience, while maintaining Bentley’s highest quality and reliability standards.
