The rich and famous of Southeast Asia are getting a special treat from Bentley Motors, which have just launched the rather mouthful-sounding Bentley Continental GT Speed – Black Speed Limited Edition by Mulliner exclusively for the region.
Limited to just ten units, the Continental Black Speed Edition is based on the 6.0-litre W12 Continental GT Speed but enhanced inside out by the craftspeople of Bentley’s bespoke division Mulliner to create a thoroughly unique vehicle.
True to its name, the Black Speed edition gets a metallic black finish contrasted by red inserts at the front grille and lower surrounds of its body kit. See that red line running from the wheel arch to the shoulder line? That’s hand painted if you look closely.
Smoked head and tail lamp clusters complement the Black Speed theme, whilst at the four corners, the Sports Directional Alloy wheels are similar treated to a gloss black finish.
Inside, the pre-dominantly black with red contrast theme continues, notably with red finish applied to its aluminium fascia panels as well as a red bezel around its centrally-mounted Breitling clock. Its GT Design Seats by Mulliner are finished in Beluga and Hotspur, with ‘BLACK SPEED’ stitched into both head rests.
The Continental GT Speed Black Speed Limited Edition was unveiled for the first time only last week at Singapore, where it retails for SGD 920,000 before COE. It sounds like a lot of money, but we won’t be surprised if the entire allocation is spoken for by now.
