Bentley has announced the launch of the Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series. Limited to just seven cars, the series is inspired by one of the seven Breitling Jets.
The Breitling Jet Team will this summer be performing a grand tour of the United States and Canada. To commemorate this spectacle, Bentley’s Mulliner division says it has re-imagined the Continental GT Speed to mirror the look of the Breitling Jets.
Each car is individually numbered and corresponds to one of the seven Breitling Jets. The exterior is painted in a duo-tone split with highlights colour matched to the exact Pantone of Breitling’s yellow, reflecting the trademark look of the L-39 Albatros Jets.
This bespoke colour theme is continued on the interior, with sculpted seats featuring accents in yellow. The dashboard’s carbon-fibre fascia panel displays an image of the seven planes in their signature Avenger flight formation, with the corresponding jet highlighted in yellow.
Similarly, Mulliner has matched the hide and thread to Breitling’s signature yellow and designed a series of logos and graphics for the headrests that highlight the number of each car and the jet that inspired it. The tread plate plaques are also individually numbered.
“The Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series demonstrates the level of customisation Mulliner can achieve for customers,” says Mulliner boss, Geoff Dowding.
The series will debut at the Boeing Seafair Airshow on 31st July in Seattle, where the Breitling Jet Team is performing. The key for each car will be handed over to its owner by the corresponding plane’s pilot.
