Bentley Continental GT Gets Even More Luxurious Mulliner Edition

Bentley Continental GT by Mulliner turns Conti up to 11

  • 400,000 stitches per car, around one per dollar spent

  • Top of the range for Continental GT


Bentley is adding to the Continental GT range with a new Mulliner version for those finding that the standard GT just wasn’t offering enough luxury to suit their tastes. Changes include a choice of 88 piano veneers, 400,000 stitches, and the knowledge your car was built by the oldest automotive coachbuilder in the world.

The Bentley Continental GT Mulliner coupe joins the Mulliner convertible and the company calls it a celebration of modern craftsmanship, one that will expand their clients’ ability to spend money commission a unique Bentley.

Debuting next week at the suitably swanky Salon Privé held at Blenheim Palace, the car will start with, most noticeably, the DOuble Diamond matrix grille that is the new signature of the Mulliner brand. New matching front fender vents with a similar silver and black design wear Mulliner branding, and there are new 22-inch wheels with an always-upright B.

Eight three-colour combinations are recommended for the cabin using the Bentley hide and thread palette. Standard cars offer just a two-tone interior. Diamond in diamond quilted stitching comes on the seats, door trim, and inside rear quarters, now boasting both accent and contrast stitching. 400,000 of those stitches crossing the entire cabin, 712 per diamond, in a process that took 18 months to develop.

The cabin roof is trimmed fully in intended or smooth hides, with the center console trimmed in a new milled technical finish flanked by walnut veneers. A Breitling clock sits in the console while a silhouette of the car appears on the passenger side of the console.

88 different veneer finishes are available, made starting with burr walnut. Owners can pick from either a 626 hp W12 or the 542 hp V8, both with 48V active roll control.

Orders from October, deliveries start next year, and your keys will come in a bespoke, handcrafted presentation box that matches your car.
