Bentley has used the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix to showcase a new limited edition model for customers in Australia and New Zealand.
Based on the Continental GT Speed, the new model carries the title “Black Speed” and is limited to just ten units.
Customers choosing the Black will get a unique black and red paint finish, including highlights to the front grille, rear diffuser and side skirts, along with the headlights and taillights.
There’s also 21-inch alloy wheels finished in gloss black.
Power comes from Bentley’s W12 twin-turbocharged petrol engine making 467kW and 820Nm, matched with an eight-speed automatic.
Inside, there’s more red and black highlights in the seats, door trims, dash and gear shifter, along with door sill plates. The package is finished with “Speed” and “Black Speed” badging.
Pricing starts at $525,000 plus on-road costs, which doesn’t include the $20,000 optional carbon ceramic brake package likely to form part of most orders.
Although, there’s every chance that the shiny Bentley parked at the Grand Prix precinct will have ensured all ten examples are already spoken for.
