Bentley’s model lineup just raised the luxury ante. For 2021, the automaker’s flagship comes by way of customization division Mulliner. The Continental GT Mulliner Coupe, as it’s called, will be in U.S. dealerships by the beginning of next year. It follows in the wake of the success of the Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, which was unveiled in the summer.
Mulliner’s raison d’etre is individualization; the cosmetics menu is an extensive list of craftsmanship touches, materials, colors and styles. And, of course, additional customization is possible for the Continental GT Mulliner Coupe.
The scheme Mulliner came up with as standard for the model follows the Mulliner Design Specification. It begins with a special diamond grille, and continues inside, where Mulliner’s ‘Diamond in Diamond’ pattern appears throughout the cabin, with a total of nearly 400,000 stitches in all.
The diamond motif continues onto the console, and a chrome and leather gear lever and black walnut veneer are standard. The automaker came up with a series of three-tone combinations as suggestions for clients. On the outside, the Mulliner Driving Specification includes 20”, 7-spoke alloy wheels with those nifty self-orienting brand badges.
The Continental GT Mulliner’s engine options carry over from the Continental GT, and of course include the 6L W12 monster that produces 626 horsepower. A 4L V8 is the standard, offering drivers 542 HP.
