Bentley Conti GT Speed Breitling-02

Here’s one for the fans of Bentley and Breitling. The British carmaker’s new Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series is limited to just seven cars, each inspired by one of the seven Breitling Jets that are renowned for their precision, speed and daring.

Bentley’s Mulliner division has dressed the recently facelifted Continental GT Speed to mirror the distinctive look of the L-39 Albatros Jets. The big GT’s exterior is painted in a striking duo-tone split of Hallmark and Onyx with highlights colour matched to the exact pantone of Breitling’s unique yellow.

The bespoke colour theme is continued inside, with unique sculpted seats featuring accents in Breitling yellow. Each car is individually numbered, and the dashboard’s carbon fibre panel displays an image of the seven planes in their signature ‘Avenger’ flight formation, with the corresponding jet highlighted in yellow.

Similarly, Mulliner has matched the hide and thread to Breitling’s signature hue and designed a series of logos and graphics for the headrests that highlight the number of each car and the jet that inspired it. The tread plate plaques are also individually numbered.

The special series will debut at the Boeing Seafair Airshow on July 31 in Seattle, where the Breitling Jet Team is performing. The key for each car will be handed over to its owner by the corresponding plane’s pilot, but not until they have experienced a flight in the jet that inspired their car. Amazing isn’t it? Look what money can buy you, friends.

“The Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series demonstrates the level of customisation Mulliner can achieve for customers. Creating this very special edition has been an exciting experience for the entire team, taking inspiration from the Breitling Jet Team’s grand tour,” said Geoff Dowding, director of Mulliner.
