Bentley unveils Le Mans Edition of its popular Continental GT
Bentley has revealed a new limited edition version of its Continental GT called the Le Mans collection. This special model is based on the regular Bentley Continental GT, but has been given a number of bespoke touches inspired by the marque's legendary Le Mans racing cars.
Under the bonnet, the Continental GT Le Mans features a massive 6.0-litre W12 engine that produces 650bhp and 900Nm of torque. This provides enough power to accelerate the grand tourer from 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 208mph.
The Le Mans collection is available in a range of distinctive exterior colours, including Beluga, Porcelain, and a striking Radium finish. Other unique features include Le Mans badges, black brake callipers, and gloss black 22-inch wheels.
Inside the car, the Continental GT Le Mans has a Beluga and Porcelain leather interior with Alcantara accents. The seats feature embroidered Le Mans logos, and the door sills and centre console are finished in a carbon fibre weave.
The Continental GT Le Mans is a fitting tribute to Bentley's racing heritage, and with only 48 examples set to be produced, it is sure to be a highly sought-after addition to any collection. Pricing details for the limited edition model have not been announced, but it is expected to cost significantly more than the standard Continental GT.
