Number 1 Edition By Mulliner Is Yet Another Retro-Flavored Bentley Continental GT

Bentley continues its centenary year celebrations with a new Continental GT-based Limited Edition model that pays homage to the legendary No. 1 Bentley Blower of 1929.

The Continental GT Convertible Number 1 Edition by Mulliner is a modern interpretation of the iconic racing car that will be made in a limited run of 100 units worldwide.

Gold-plated badges

Each of them will feature 18-carat gold plated fender badging as well as a piece of history — a small wheel spinner cast from a piston from the No.1 Bentley Blower. Set in resin within the Bentley Rotating Display, it is reminiscent of wheel spinners found on the No.1 and other historic Bentleys.

Based on the Bentley Continental GT Convertible powered by the 626hp (635PS) 6.0-liter W12 engine, the Number 1 Edition by Mulliner is available in two colors: Dragon Red II or Beluga, with a Claret or Beluga folding hood. The car’s equipment also includes the Centenary Pack, Bentley Black Line Specification, Carbon Body Kit, and painted Number 1 front grille.

The Bentley Centenary Specification Pack brings Centenary badges to the rear and on the wheel centers, Centenary LED welcome lamps, Centenary badging on the gear lever and steering wheel, and a Centenary badge on the key-fob. Other distinctive exterior styling elements include the jeweled filler and oil caps, as well as 22-inch MDS wheels in either Cricket Ball or Gloss Black finish.

Inside, the limited edition Continental GT Convertible features a new color split of either Cricket Ball or Beluga main hide complemented by Heritage hide on the seats and door panels. Other details include a debossed B insignia on the headrests and door inserts, Grand Black wood veneer with 18-carat gold plated organ stops, and Alcantara steering wheel and gear lever. A Number 1 tread plate insert and a British Jaeger clock featuring a Number 1 face complete the package.

The Number 1 Edition will be the final car in Bentley’s Centenary trilogy, following the Mulsanne W.O. Edition and the Continental GT Number 9 Edition.
