Customers of the Continental GT Mulliner can select either the signature Bentley 6.0-liter W12 powertrain that generates 626hp, or the beautiful 4.0-liter V8 producing 542hp for a certain degree of performance that contrasts the handcrafted elegance of the vehicle.
The pioneering 48-volt electric active anti-roll technology of Bentley, the Bentley Dynamic Ride, is included as standard. This brings remarkable stability and body control during cornering as well as a comfortable and indulging ride when traveling.
Luxury also defines the cabin of the Continental GT Mulliner. It also displays a specific level of personalization and choice that only the Mulliner can offer.
An exceptional color division is also exclusive to the vehicle, with a new blend of primary and secondary hide merged with a third color via a flowing design line.
Mulliner also suggested eight various three-color combinations through the use of the auto brand’s palette of threads and hides to make an impressive yet exquisite contrast within the cabin.
The Mulliner Driving Specification also comes as standard, which adds the “Diamond in Diamond” quilting to its rear quarter panels, door trims, and seats. Currently, it also has both accent and contrast stitching along the diamond configuration.
The seats are also polished with embroidered Mulliner badges. The floor mats are bordered with micro-piping to complement the entire color scheme of the interior.
Moreover, the chrome Bentley “B” retention caps serve as a sample of the exquisite details that isolate the Continental GT Mulliner from other vehicles in its family.
The center console is adorned in a new diamond-milled technical finish that utilizes accurate machining to create a suitable pattern of facets, which are edged on either side by Grand Black walnut veneer along with chrome overlays.
A distinct Breitling clock can be seen in the center console. On the other hand, the passenger side fascia is polished with a silhouette of the exterior profile of the vehicle and the Mulliner badge.
