Bentley Reveals Continental GT Speed Models Inspired by Famous Jets


Bentley is unleashing seven limited edition Continental GT Speed vehicles inspired by famous jets.

Called the Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series (aka one of the longest car names we’ve ever seen), the special series is limited to just seven cars, each inspired by one of the seven Breitling jets. To celebrate the Breitling Jet Team performing across the U.S. and Canada this summer, Bentley’s Mulliner division has re-imagined the Continental GT Speed to mirror the distinctive look of the Breitling jets. On the outside of the custom Bentley Continental GT Speed luxury coupes is a duo-tone split of Hallmark and Onyx with the highlight color matched to the exact Pantone of Breitling’s unique yellow, reflecting the signature style of the L-39 Albatros Jets.

Naturally, the bespoke color theme carries into the cabin with unique sculpted seats accented by the same Breitling Yellow shade. Each car will be individually numbered and the dash’s carbon fiber panel will display an image of the seven planes in their signature Avenger flight formation.

The Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series will debut at the Boeing Seafair Airshow on July 31 in Seattle and the key for each car will be handed over to its new owner by the corresponding plane’s pilot. That is, only after they’ve experienced a flight in the jet that inspired their car.

“The Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series demonstrates the level of customization Mulliner can achieve for customers,” said Geoff Dowding, Director of Mulliner. “Creating this very special edition has been an exciting experience for the entire team, taking inspiration from the Breitling Jet Team’s grand tour.”
