Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Styling Specification
Bentley has come out with a new range of accessories for the latest 2011 Continental GT grouped under its prestigious Mulliner branding. The Mulliner name comes from the original British coachbuilding firm H. J. Mulliner & Co but in more recent years has been used for Bentley’s own personalization program.
In the case of the Continental GT, the Mulliner package includes a unique front bumper splitter, strakes integrated into the front intake grilles, side extension blades and a rear diffuser, all made from carbon fiber.
These are complemented by a range of additional design options, comprising a carbon fiber rear spoiler and door mirror cowls as well as unique 21-inch wheels finished in glossy black. The final touch is a set of dark mesh front wing vents with carbon fiber bezels.
Unlike many after-market styling packages, Bentley has subjected the components of the Mulliner package to a typically rigorous and comprehensive quality and engineering test and development program.
A series of high performance ‘V-Max’ tests and wind tunnel appraisals were undertaken to ensure that the handling and performance was in the same league as the regular model.
The standard package is available for order now, while the additional design features will be available this fall.
