Bentley has decided to revisit its limited edition Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series by Mulliner by showing us how the special model came to life through a video montage. Only seven units were destined to reach the assembly line and the rightful owners got the keys during the Boeing Seafair Air Show in Seattle in United States. Each car was actually inspired by one of the seven Breitling jets and all adopt a Hallmark and Onyx two-tone paint as a connection to the legendary L-39 Albatros jet which served as inspiration for this latest special edition Bentley.
It’s the same story with the luxurious yet sporty interior cabin that has a similar theme and features newly developed seats featuring Breitling Yellow accents along with a bespoke carbon fiber fascia panel showing an image of the seven Albatros jets in an Avenger flight formation. In addition, all the cars have received special tread plate plaques to denote this indeed a limited edition Bentley.
All the seven lucky owners got the keys to the cars from the corresponding plane’s pilot and they also had the special opportunity to participate in an aerobatic flight so it must have been an extraordinary experience to fly a jet and drive home with a brand new Bentley in the very same day.
There aren’t any mechanical changes, so the Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series has the same 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine which produces a massive 626 bhp and a maximum torque of 819 Nm. This is actually the company’s fastest model ever made as it’s capable of hitting a top speed of no less than 332 kmph.
Bentley hasn’t revealed the car’s price tag, but rest assure those seven buyers paid a hefty premium over the standard Continental GT Speed which itself is one of the most expensive models from Crewe money can buy these days.
