Bentley’s unique GT Convertible pays homage to the Bavarian region.
Bentley has previously promised to build more one-off commissions to compete with Rolls-Royce. Keeping its promise, the luxury automaker has just unveiled its latest bespoke creation: the Continental GT Convertible Bavaria Edition by Mulliner. As the name suggests, the one of a kind GT Convertible is "inspired by the beauty of the Bavarian region.”
Distinguishing the Continental GT Convertible Bavaria Edition is its Glacier White exterior paint and Imperial Blue roof designed to represent the Bavaria flag pattern. Finished in chrome, the flag pattern adorns the front fender with enamel infills in Mulliner Bespoke White and Light Blue Sport. Rounding off the exterior enhancements are 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels and a bright chromed lower bumper grille.
Inside, you'll find Bavarian flag pattern embroidered seat headrests in Bespoke White and Light Blue Sport thread. Complementing the flag pattern is a Bentley Bavaria Edition treadplate inlay. The uniquely crafted interior is finished in a Mulliner Glacier White painted dual veneer with an Imperial Blue hide, along with Linen contrast stitching and piping and Linen overmat binding and stitching.
Only one example will be hand-built by Bentley’s in-house coachbuilder, Mulliner, in Crewe, England, and will be presented at an exclusive event at Bentley’s Munich retailer. Bentley hasn’t said how much the owner paid for the bespoke Continental GT Convertible Bavaria Edition, but the standard car starts at an eye-watering $218,400, so it certainly wouldn't have been cheap.
Like all Continental GT Convertibles, the one-off grand tourer is powered by a 6.0-liter W12 engine producing 626 horsepower, which is connected to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. This setup enables the Continental GT Convertible to complete the 0-62 mph sprint in 3.7 seconds and top out at 207 mph.
