CONTINENTAL GT NUMBER 9 EDITION BY MULLINER
To celebrate Bentley’s first century, Mulliner has created a limited edition of the new Continental GT, inspired by the legendary No. 9 Bentley Blower.
Sir Henry ‘Tim’ Birkin, a racing driver with a passion for speed and one of the original Bentley Boys of the 1920s and 30s, added a supercharger to a Bentley 4 ½ Litre. This enabled the car to reach a whole new level of performance and the Bentley Blower was born.
The Continental GT Number 9 Edition by Mulliner takes the striking design of the Continental GT to new heights, combining its sleek lines, unrivalled power and cutting-edge technology with unique elements that evoke the spirit and racing heritage of Tim Birkin’s car.
Its exquisite details include a new Viridian paint colour, a modern take on the traditional racing green as seen on the No.9 Blower, an 18-carat gold-plated No. 9 badge, a centre console with a turned aluminium Engine Spin finish and an exclusive British Jaeger clock face.
In addition, the car contains something truly priceless: a piece of the original wooden racing seat from the No. 9. Removed during the Blower’s restoration, a section of the wood is proudly displayed in the Bentley Rotating Display, adding a piece of Bentley’s story to the car.
