Fifteen special Bentley Continental GTs are being made to commemorate the Pikes Peak Hillclimb record the company’s staple coupe took back in June.

You’ll have to be a dedicated Bentley and Pikes Peak fan to swallow the color. It borrows the Radium green paint scheme that the record-breaking car wore on its run up the mountain, along with splashes of black front-to-back. The brake calipers and even the Pirelli P Zero tires get flashes of green, too. Happily, the car itself is also available in black.

A carbon fiber body kit adds some aggression, as do the ‘Mulliner Driving Specification’ 22-inch wheels in black. Optional is the ‘100’ marker on the grille, in the marque’s traditional racing style, to commemorate its centenary.

The green extends to the cabin, too. Green stitching is everywhere, while the outline of the mountain is embroidered on the headrests. The course itself is also outlined on the carbon fiber cabin trim.

“The new Limited Edition Continental GT is distinguished by a number of carefully curated features to honor that outstanding record run,” said Chris Craft of Bentley Motors.

“It reflects Bentley’s spirit of endeavor, one that has been a constant throughout the last 100 years and remains at the beating heart of the company.”

From the Pacific Coast Highway to Pikes Peak, you’d think the Continental GT would be well outside of its cosseting grand touring comfort zone. Still, the 630hp Continental shaved 8.4 seconds off the existing record for the 12.42-mile hill course.

Former ‘King of the Mountain’ Rhys Millen took the Continental up the 156-bend 5,000ft course in 10 minutes 18.04 seconds. If this unique, rare and special Continental is your flavor, it’s available to order now.
