Take Flight with the Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet

Seven jets, seven cars.

Dealers are always trying to sweeten the sales pot with incentives, but Bentley has taken things a bit over the top with its latest promotion. Bentley will unveil seven limited-edition Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team vehicles, each matched to one of the seven Breitling Jets. When owners are presented with their keys, they'll also be invited to fly in the actual L-39 Albatros jet that corresponds to their new Bentley.

Once back on solid ground, owners will be able to get a first taste of the Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team. Bentley's Mulliner division made the upgrades to these seven Continental GT Speed vehicles, each bearing a two-tone paint scheme of Hallmark for the hood, roof and trunk, and Onyx for the middle section of the body. The lower trim on the front bumper, side sills, and rear bumper are all accented in striking Breitling Yellow.

The yellow detailing continues to the inside of the Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team. Yellow piping along the center tunnel, door panels, seats, and dashboard trim match the trim for the steering wheel and shift lever. A carbon fiber panel displaying the seven-jet formation of the Breiling Jet team appears on the passenger-side dashboard. Going even further, unique logos in the headrests and individually numbered door sill plaques set the Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team vehicles apart.

Like other Bentley Continental GT Speed models, the Breilting Jet Team Series employs a 6.0-liter, 626-hp twin-turbo W-12 with 607 lb-ft of torque. Mated to an eight-speed automatic, the beefy engine hurls the GT Speed from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds on to a top speed of 206 mph—the highest of any production Bentley in history. Cost of entry is also quite elevated, at $232,025.

The Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team will debut at the Boeing Seafair Airshow in Seattle on July 31.
