BENTLEY IS PREPARING to launch a new line of special-edition models for its 2010 Continental range, which will debut at Frankfurt and kick off with the Series 51 Continental GTC.
Named after the year in which Bentley established its first styling department, the Series 51 models carry a number of aesthetic improvements, both inside and outside.
The Series 51 Continental GTC gets a three-tone leather interior, unique 20-inch 14-spoke alloys, diamond-quilted leather seats and Series 51 treadplates on each door sill.
Colour-matched boot carpet and overmats feature, and a choice of turned aluminium or Amboyna veneer interior trim pieces are available.
Buyers will have the option of a two-tone exterior colour scheme, which features a contrasting paint colour applied to the bonnet, roof and boot.
A full range of options will be offered on the Series 51 Continentals; more precise details will be revealed at the car's Frankfurt debut on September 15.
