In celebration of Bentley’s first 100 extraordinary years, Mulliner has created a truly exceptional limited edition: the Continental GT Number 9 Edition.
Paying tribute to Bentley’s proud racing heritage and inspired by Bentley Boy Sir Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin’s legendary No. 9 Blower, this limited edition is the epitome of Bentley’s ceaseless quest to offer you elegant design and an exhilarating, involving drive.
Only 100 of these remarkable cars will ever be produced, making this is an incredibly rare opportunity to own a unique part of Bentley’s story. To enquire about the Number 9 Edition visit Bentley Beverly Hills or call us on +1 323 648 5700.
A modern masterpiece with a legendary past
The exhilarating character of the original No. 9 Blower made it instantly popular in the 1920s and 30s, and an enduring legend of motor racing. Today, the Number 9 Edition combines the sleek lines, thrilling power and cutting edge technology of the new Continental GT with a series of interior and exterior design tributes to the No. 9.
Tim Birkin’s iconic 1930 No. 9 Le Mans race car – which still races today - had its original seat replaced during restoration works. A wooden fragment of this priceless piece of Bentley’s story has been carefully set in resin and placed in each of the 100 cars in the Continental GT Number 9 Edition, proudly displayed in the Bentley Rotating Display.
With the debossed B from the door pads of the original No. 9 lovingly recreated on the headrests and door pads, and the hides given a high-gloss finish to more closely represent the style of the 1930s, the influence of the No. 9 Blower is clearly visible throughout the cabin of the Continental GT Number 9 Edition.
The turned aluminium Engine Spin finish on the centre console and exclusive British Jaeger clock face also evoke the power and racing pedigree of the original car.
A striking exterior
Making its debut with the Number 9 Edition, Mulliner’s newly created Viridian paint colour represents a modern take on the traditional racing green of the No. 9 Blower. Alternatively, you can opt for Beluga – a deep, luxurious black.
You can choose to either match the car’s 22” painted wheels to the exterior, or you can use the other paint colour as a striking contrast. Showcasing the extraordinary Mulliner craft, an 18-carat gold-plated No. 9 exterior badge provides the perfect finishing touch.
A 21st century legend
