Congratulations to Bentley for 100 years building amazing cars. They wanted to celebrate the anniversary in style, so the Bentley Continental GT #9 Edition by Mulliner has been unveiled in Geneva. Looking to their past motorsports machines, the supercharged racers are the ones everyone fawns over. So it was decided to pay homage to Sir Henry Ralph Stanley ‘Tim’ Birkin. He was a customer, racer, and investor in the brand’s early days.

His #9 will be resurrected in a run of 100 cars by their coachbuilders at Mulliner. It will be a prominent feature of the grille along with gold badges. Customers can choose from Viridian Green or Beluga black paint. Inside you can choose from Cumbrian Green or Beluga black ‘Heritage Hides’. This leather has increased gloss on the seats, door panels, and a few other areas.

The dash is trimmed in machined aluminum, the same low-gloss finish used on the race cars. Other unique features include a clock by British Jaeger, and a wood veneer from Birkin’s original seat. It was removed from #9 during restoration, and it gives these new cars a physical connection to their ancestor. The latest Continental GT also uses forced induction, with twin turbos feeding a W12 engine. Sixty mph arrives in 3.6 seconds and you will have a top speed of 207 mph.
