Bentley has built a special GT convertible on its centenary year.

Galvanized by the allure of the Bavaria region, the Continental GT, one of the world’s more luxurious Grand Tourers, receives a Bavaria Edition by Mulliner. It was designed by Stefan Sielaff, Bentley’s Director of design.

The Bavaria themed limited edition will be handbuilt by Mulliner in Crewe, England, and was officially presented in an exclusive event at Bentley’s Munich retailer.

Bavarian colors with Glacier White exterior paint and Imperial Blue roof, reflecting the Bavaria flag pattern, distinguish this Continental GT. Chrome-finished flag patterns decorate the front fender with enamel infills – Mulliner Bespoke White and Light Blue Sport. The car is then dressed-up with 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification wheels and a bright chromed lower bumper grille.

Seat headrests are embroidered with Bavarian flag patterns in Bespoke White and Light Blue Sport thread. It’s complemented by a Bentley Bavaria Edition treadplate inlay.

Finishing this Bentley’s interior is a Mulliner Glacier White painted dual veneer dashboard with an Imperial Blue hide.

Mulliner’s roots date back to the 1500’s with a focus on creating luxurious horse-drawn carriages.
