In late August Bentley launched their Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series, which is one of the most exclusive ranges of cars on the planet. Only seven were made, and each car is unique: they all take their design cues from a different jet in the Breitling team, which is the world’s largest professional jet-based civilian flight team. If that’s not special enough, at the handover ceremony the owners were not only given their keys but also a matching Breitling watch, and then each was taken for a ride in the Breitling jet that matched their vehicle. We’re very jealous!
Although we can’t get our hands on one, we can live vicariously through this beautiful Bentley video, which demonstrates just how much hard work goes into making these beautiful cars. Watch it below.
The Breitling Series cars are design to reflect the power and strength of their namesake jets, fusing extreme customisation with immense speed. Created by Mulliner, the Continental cars are painted in a striking duo-tone split of Hallmark and Onyx, and – as you’ll see in the video, the highlight colour is matched to the exact Pantone of Breitling’s unique Yellow, reflecting the trademark look of the L-39 Albatros Jets. This Breitling Yellow is also used as a highlight colour in the interior, where a dazzling Breitling clock and unique embroidered graphics also wait for the lucky owner.
Geoff Dowding, Director of Mulliner, said: “The Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series demonstrates the level of customisation Mulliner can achieve for customers. Creating this very special edition has been an exciting experience for the entire team, taking inspiration from the Breitling Jet Team’s grand tour.”
We urge you to watch the video and find out for yourself just how much detail and care goes into making these stunning and unique cars.
