Special Bentley Continental GT Speed Cars Inspired by Breitling Jets

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 6/30/2015 Kelly Pleskot

Bentley has designed a limited number of Continental GT Speed coupes in honor of the Breitling Jets, a famed group of L-39 Albatros planes that perform in high-speed aerobatic performances across the world.

Only seven of these special Bentleys will be made, and each one will be dedicated to one of the seven Breitling Jets. The tread plates in each car are numbered based on the specific jet that inspired it, and unique logos and graphics for the headrests also distinguish one model from the rest. A carbon fiber panel on the dashboard displays an image of the seven planes in their signature Avenger flight formation, and highlights the specific jet that corresponds to each car.

On the exterior, look for a two-tone paint scheme complemented by yellow accents that match the specific yellow used on the Breitling Jets. The yellow accents continue almost everywhere, from the car's seats to the door panels, dashboard, and gear shift. Under the hood, look for a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W-12 delivering 626 hp and 607 lb-ft of torque.

The cars will debut at the Boeing Seafair Airshow in Seattle, Wash., on July 31. Here, the Breitling Jet Team will perform, and the pilots will hand over the keys of each special Bentley to the lucky owners.
