Seven Handmade Bentley Continental GT Speeds Inspired By Breitling Jets

Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series
 

Bentley’s latest limited edition Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series pays tribute to Breitling Jet Team, the world’s largest professional civilian flight team performing in jets. The seven unit collection built by automaker’s Mulliner customization unit draws its inspiration from each individual aircraft of the Breitling team. Unveiling of the new car is scheduled to take place during the Boeing Seafair Airshow on July 31 in Seattle.

The re-imagined looks of each Continental GT closely follows those of the Czech-made L-39 Albatros Jets. The exteriors are painted in a dual-tone split of Hallmark and Onyx with highlights color matched to the exact Pantone of Breitling’s unique Yellow. Each car comes individually numbered and the number corresponds to one of the seven jets.

Bentely makes no mention of any changes to Continental GT Speed’s specifications so you could expect the same 6.0 liter twin-turbo W12 engine with 635PS and 820Nm of torque. It has a top speed of 206/mph and sprint from 0-60mph in 4 seconds. Bentley press release also notes that the key for each car will be handed over to its owner by the corresponding jet’s pilot. Better yet owners also gets a ride on the same jet that inspired their car.
