Limited Edition Bentley Continental GT: Pikes Peak

Want your Continental in lime green with extra stickers? You’re in luck

Is it even worth winning a motorsport event or breaking a record if you can’t get a special edition road car out of it? Pah! Of course it isn’t, and luckily, Bentley set a new production car record at the Pikes Peak hill climb in Colorado earlier this year…

Welcome then, to the Limited-Edition Pikes Peak Continental GT. Catchy. There’s no missing it though, is there? As you can see in the final picture above, Bentley’s record car was painted in a lurid green colour scheme, although it seems as though you can have the subsequent special in green or a rather menacing black.

Whichever colour you go for, you’ll also get a carbon fibre body kit, some gloss black exterior detailing, lime green brake calipers and those colourful Pirelli tyres. The ‘100’ on the grille celebrates Bentley’s centenary year and can be removed if you so wish.

What can’t be removed are the obligatory Pikes Peak stickers, whilst the Alcantara-heavy interior features some green accents and even more stickers – including one on the dash of the 12.42-mile course. There’s also a reminder of Rhys Millen’s record-breaking 10m 18.4s time to interest your passengers.

That run was of course done in the W12-engined Conti, so that’s what’s on offer here too. With a massive 626bhp and 664lb ft of torque, and 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds, those stickers shouldn’t slow things down too much.

The Pikes Peak edition will be limited to just 15 examples, and that’s about all we know for now. What do you think, Internet?
