Is this Bentley by Mulliner one of the world’s most luxurious grand tourer?

Bentley has created the ultimate collector’s version of the all-new Continental GT to celebrate the company’s centenary in 2019.
Continental GT Number 9 Edition by Mulliner

The Continental GT Number 9 Edition by Mulliner is inspired by Bentley’s illustrious motorsport past and incorporates a number of distinctive features into the world’s most luxurious grand tourer. Just 100 examples will be hand-built by Mulliner in Crewe, England, based on the Continental GT this year.

Number 9 Edition by Mulliner pays homage to Sir Henry Ralph Stanley ‘Tim’ Birkin, one of the original, ‘Bentley Boys’ of the 1920s and ‘30s. Birkin was a Bentley customer, investor and a race driver, full of entrepreneurial spirit and ambition – and through the determined collaboration of man and machine, the 4.5 litre ‘Blower’ was born.

The Number 9 Edition by Mulliner is distinguished by No.9 badgework and a bold, matching front grille graphic. Customers have the option of either Viridian green or Beluga black exterior paint, with 10-spoke wheels also in these colours.

The Continental GT’s revolutionary Bentley rotating display has been further enhanced with a Bentley ‘Blower’ artefact. This Number 9 Edition features a wood insert from the seat of Birkin’s iconic 1930 No. 9 Le Mans race car, which was removed during a sympathetic renovation. This backlit piece is set in resin and situated in the middle of the centre dial of the rotating display, adding a piece of history to each car.

Bentley will officially celebrate its centenary year on 10 July 2019. Every Bentley built this year will have a collection of carefully curated design touches on both the interior and exterior of the car.
