In celebration of some important milestones in its long history at Le Mans, Bentley has released a special edition for both the Mulsanne and Continental.
You may not associate Bentley with Le Mans as closely as its sister brands Porsche or Audi, but it’s not for nothing that its flagship model shares its name with one of the straights on the Circuit La Sarthe. In fact, Bentley has claimed six wins at the legendary endurance race. So to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Le Mans, the marque’s participation in that very first race and the 10th anniversary of its most recent victory there, Bentley has announced new limited edition versions of both the Mulsanne and the Continental GT.
Starting with the larger model, the Mulsanne Le Mans Edition features diamond-quilted seats and door panels, unique illuminated treadplates, alloy pedals, a sportier suspension and steering rack, quad exhaust tips and special darkened modular five-spoke alloys. The Le Mans Edition of the Continental is available in GT coupe, GTC convertible and GT Speed coupe forms, and is available in six different color combinations, each honoring a Le Mans-winning driver from Bentley’s history. Only 48 examples of each will be made, each sporting unique badges, clocks, embroidery, wheels and interior.
