Bentley Created a Special Edition Model Because it’s Going Racing

Bentley has a new special edition car called the Continental 24 and we have a feeling not everyone is going to like it.

Based on the Bentley Continental Supersports, the Bentley Continental 24 is a limited edition model for Europe. Naturally, the name comes from Bentley’s participation in the 24 Hours of Nurburgring, but the British automaker will only build 24 units and none are coming to North America. It features a motorsport theme and largely consists of interior and exterior changes, which means the 700-horsepower engine is mostly left untouched, with just the addition of a gloss carbon fiber cover and the Supersports’ titanium exhaust system.

The exterior takes inspiration from the Bentley Team ABT Continental GT3 race cars and is available in a unique two-tone of Monaco Yellow over Black Crystal or St James’ Red over Black Crystal. There is a single-tone exterior option available at no cost. Bentley then adds 21-inch lightweight forged wheels to all four corners, which can be finished in yellow or red accents to match the two-tone body. Standard on the special edition model are carbon fiber door mirrors, black brake calipers, and all-black exterior brightware.

Additional changes are made inside the cabin with a similar race theme, complete with fascias, door panels, and individually numbered treadplates finished in carbon fiber. All four seats are upholstered in Alcantara with diamond quilting, further accented with matching red or yellow details. The headrests also have a unique emblem, while “Continental 24” inlays are fitted to the fascias.

Customer deliveries of the Continental 24 will begin in July and pricing starts at €250,000 or approximately $280,000.
