Bentley is heading back to Nurburgring 24 Hours for a third consecutive year in a row, and to celebrate they have created the new Continental 24. This limited edition model is based on the Continental Supersports. This new edition will be available in two color schemes: Monaco Yellow over Black Crystal or St James' Red over Black Crystal. These colors draw inspiration from three Bentley Team ABT Continental GT3 race cars that will be competing in this year's Nurburgring 24-hour race. Joining either of these color schemes are a set of black 21-inch forged wheels that can be finished with either red or yellow to match the paintwork that was chosen for the body. Inside is a race-themed cabin with diamond quilting, Alcantara, and accents match the exterior paint.
Underneath the hood is the same 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine found in the Continental Supersports. This means that the Continental 24 edition will have 700 bhp and 738 lb-ft of torque on tap. Power of this kind will give the Continental 24 enough juice to run 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 209 mph. Now, here are the facts those who are interested in picking one of these up. As far as price goes, it starts at €250,000 (around $280,000 USD). Deliveries of the 24 planned examples will start in July, but those in the United States will be sad to hear that this model is destined only for the European market.
