Bentley showcases its extensive customization options available through Mulliner with three limited-edition Continental GT Speed convertibles. The cars, commissioned by Bentley Beverley Hills, each sport custom pastel exterior colors reminiscent of Hollywood’s Art Deco era – Jetstream II Blue, Sage Green and Hollywood Blush Pink.
The one finished in blue also sports the color on its 22-inch 10-spoke wheels. Inside, Bentley installed a linen main skin with contrast stitching and Imperial Blue for the secondary. Each car is equipped with Styling, Touring and City specifications, and illuminated sill plates read “The Beverly Hills” rendered in a 1930s typeface, further tying the vehicle’s custom look to the era.
The second Continental GT Speed Convertible wears Sage Green, an understated color that covers the body and wheels, which the automaker accentuates with a white stripe on the outer rim. It’s the same inside, with Cumbrian green and linen used throughout the cabin. Bentley also uses the color on the dash veneer and waist rails. The third Bentley sports a pastel pink “Hollywood Blush” color that extends to the rims like the other two. Inside, the automaker pairs linen with Cricketball Red, two colors Bentley uses on the dash veneer and waist rails.
“Beverly Hills has always been the epitome of glamour, especially during Hollywood’s Golden Age,” said Danika Quinn, the automaker’s chief brand officer. “This collection is a nod to the bygone era of Old Hollywood encapsulating the spirit of that era; bold whitewall tires, soft color palettes and unique designs that exemplify the ‘class’ of classic cars . »
The Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible made its debut in April 2021. The luxury car features the automaker’s twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 engine, which produces 650 horsepower (485 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque. An eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive are standard.
The three cars ordered help showcase Mulliner’s personalization programs and Bentley’s high-quality craftsmanship. Bentley has seen demand for specific Mulliner features continue to grow since 2020. According to the company, requests for special Mulliner paint finishes have doubled while the number of personal orders has tripled.
