By JAY WONG | 4 December 2020

LONDON: Bentley has proudly announced that 15 of its limited-edition Pikes Peak Continental GT by Mulliner cars have made their way around the world to their new owners.

Celebrating Bentley’s record-breaking run up the world-renowned Pikes Peak - Colorado in the US, this unique and exclusive run has unfortunately sold out.

The Pikes Peak Continental GT Limited Edition is part of Bentley Mulliner’s new ‘Collections’ portfolio that's been restricted to just 15 examples - all hand-built at Bentley’s carbon-neutral factory in Crewe, England.

Owners are spread around the world, in locations as far apart as Japan, the United Arab Emirates, Germany, New Zealand, Latvia and the United Kingdom.

Five of the new owners come from the US including New York (Manhattan), Florida (Fort Lauderdale) to Michigan (Troy), California (Rancho Mirage) and Nebraska (Omaha).

Eighteen months ago, a race-prepared version of a standard W12-powered Continental GT beat the coveted time for a production car by more than eight seconds, climbing almost 5,000ft through Pikes Peak’s 156 bends in just 10 minutes and 18.4 seconds.

The world’s finest Grand Tourer was driven on that occasion by three-time Pikes Peak champion, former ‘King of the Mountain’ Rhys Millen.

To match the look of the record-breaking car, a third of customers have opted for the Mountain Decal Event Livery for their Limited Edition Continental GTs, whilst three owners have chosen a subtle gloss black exterior paint finish.

All 15 Pikes Peak Continental GT by Mulliner cars honour Bentley’s achievements on the world’s most demanding hill climb.

The British luxury coach builder first achieved the record for the fastest production sports utility vehicle (SUV) with the Bentyaga in 2018, and then took the production car record with the Continental GT in 2019.
