Few automotive brands can say they’ve survived for a full century. Even fewer can say they’ve done it with the fervor and class embodied by Bentley. To celebrate a hundred years of the marque, the fabled coachbuilders at Mulliner have handcrafted this special Number 9 Edition Continental GT.
Inspired by the brand’s racing history — more specifically, Sir Henry Ralph Stanley ‘Tim’ Birkin’s ‘Blower’ race car — only one hundred of these exclusive cars will ever be made. And each is done up with gorgeous details, which include Number 9 badging, a wood insert taken directly from Birkin’s Le Mans car, an exclusive British Jaeger dashboard clock inspired by 1930 dials, vintage race car-inspired 18K gold plated organ stops, and more. Of course, this limited edition still does 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, has a top speed of 207 mph, and has a range of 500 miles. There’s no word yet on pricing, but we’d not be surprised if it was in the one-million-dollars-or-more range.
