Bentley makes my day by creating the new Mulliner Styling Specification to the Bentley Continental GT. The new Mulliner Styling Specification’s Classic Pack features a unique front bumper splitter, strakes integrated into the front intake grilles, side extension blades and a rear diffuser, all made from high-gloss, black carbon fiber. These are complimented by a range of individual design options, comprising black, carbon fiber rear spoiler and door mirror cowls as well as distinctive, black-painted 21-inch ‘Elegant’ alloy wheels and dark mesh front wing vents with black carbon fiber bezels.
In addition to the core features of the Classic Pack, customers have the opportunity to customize their cars further with four additional optional features. The GT’s stylish rear spoiler, which automatically deploys at higher road speeds, may be specified in carbon fiber, while Raul Pires, Bentley’s head of exterior design’s renowned eye for detail is reflected in the optional carbon fiber door mirror cowls.
To complement the carbon fiber features of the Mulliner Styling Specification, customers may also specify the option of 21-inch 7-spoke Elegant alloy wheels in a dramatic black-painted finish with contrasting bright machined detailing.
Customers may also opt for eye-catching, curved wing vents. Positioned just behind the front wheel arches, the dark chrome mesh vents (framed by a carbon fiber bezel) offer improved heat diffusion as well as forcefully underlining the Continental GT’s high-performance credentials.
The carbon fiber itself has been subjected to an extended regimen of extreme climatic and real world driving tests to ensure that durability matches the same high standards of the cars to which they are applied.
The Classic Pack is available to order from June 2011 onwards and the optional design features can be ordered from authorized Bentley dealers Fall 2011.
