Bentley Unveils Continental Mulliner GT
The elevated coupe is a study in luxury personalisation.
The Mulliner insignia prompts the very pointy end of Bentley’s already elevated range – the Continental GT Coupe the latest to bestowed the lofty honour.
Ahead of its public debut at the UK Salon Privé motoring event being held in the week, the Continental Mulliner GT Coupe broadens the ability for enthusiasts to commission a Bentley to individual specification.
On the surface, few changes have been made to differentiate the Mulliner’s exterior from the standard GT. However a keen eye will spot the double diamond matrix grille, matching wing vents and Mulliner badging dotted around the body; the addition of 22-inch wheels with self-levelling Bentley badges also impressive.
The interior is where the GT’s extensive elevation lies, with Bentley offering diamond-in-diamond leather upholstery – coordinating with the grille – in eight different three-colour combinations for a total of 400,000 stitches across each Mulliner cabin.
The roof is trimmed with either indented or smooth leather hide, with the option for a glass roof; elsewhere, a diamond milled finish is offered for the centre console that’s lined with grand black walnut veneer or one of 88 other veneer finishes.
Bentley’s also brought in new digital dials for the spec’d-up coupe, aiming for an authentic metal to coordinate with the car’s in-built Breitling clock.
The Bentley Continental Mulliner GT Coupe will be available with either a 6.0 litre W12 producing 466kW or 4.0 litre V8 boasting 404kW.
Local pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed.
