Bentley has been pulling out all of the stops for the celebration of its centenary year, and after dominating the automotive newsfeed for months on end, the company has revealed yet another commemorative release. This time, paying homage to the 1929 No. 1 Bentley Blower — an iconic, record-holding race car that would put the London-based outfit’s name on the map in the early 20th Century.

The Bentley Continental GT Convertible No. 1 Edition draws heavily from the manufacturer’s original race car, which set the longstanding lap record at the Brooklands racing circuit in 1932. Showcasing a number of innovative features that have been fostered by the company’s evolution, the centenary vehicle has received an enhanced version of the manufacturer’s 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged W12 TSI engine, as well as a handful of bespoke features like the Claret (or Beluga) folding hood, Black Line Specification, and carbon body kit — maintaining the GT’s illustrious guise. A finely-crafted British Jaeger clock, Engine Spin center console, and Heritage hide seats work alongside the car’s Grand Black wood veneer and 18-carat gold plated organ stops, exuding an aura of lavish luxury. To round out the iconic vehicle, a wheel spinner fashioned from a piston of the original No.1 (and similar to those found in classic Bentley vehicles), has been immortalized in the GT’s rotating display. Only 100 examples of the No. 1 Edition are scheduled to be made.
