Bentley’s ultra-high-end Mulliner Collections line-up has expanded, with the Continental GT Coupé joining its convertible sibling

Shown ahead of its first public debut at the Salon Privé motoring event next week, the Continental GT Mulliner is said to “celebrate modern craftsmanship” and offer “even wider possibilities to commission a unique Bentley to their individual specification”. 

Exterior differences for the Mulliner variant over the standard Continental GT include a new Double Diamond matrix grille and matching wing vents. Mulliner badging features in various places, while unique 22in wheels with self-levelling Bentley badges also feature. 

More extensive additions are made inside, with diamond-in-diamond leather upholstery matching the design of the grille throughout. There are eight different three-colour combinations for the extensive leather hide choices and 400,000 stitches used in each GT Mulliner cabin. 

Mulliner logos also adorn the seats, while unique floor mats with chrome retention caps also feature. The roof is trimmed fully with indented leather hide or smooth hide if the glass roof is specified. Further luxury touches include a diamond-milled finish for the centre console, flanked by Grand Black walnut veneer, again with a Mulliner logo (and silhouette of the car) on the passenger side. A total of 88 other veneer finishes are available. 

Bentley has also tweaked the Continental's digital dials to offer a design that, it claims, makes the surrounds look like real metal to match the car’s Breitling clock. 

The Continental GT Mulliner will become available to order next month in both its coupé and convertible forms, either with the 6.0-litre W12 or 4.0-litre V8 engine. Both get the firm’s 48V Dynamic Ride anti-roll technology as standard.

Customers will receive a bespoke, Mulliner-branded presentation box with their keys. Prices haven't been detailed.

That is one fucking ugly car.

I think you could feel pretty cool/smug driving one of these. And what's wrong with that?!
Fantastic job Bentley.
P.S. Thank goodness some muppet didn't choose a garish colour.

Starting to feel sorry for the very rich. Compelled to pay way over the odds in order to feel like an individual. They all have to buy the same brands, holiday in the same places, and like the same things, but then pay even more for them. Poor little sheep. Perhaps Bentley should rename Mulliner 'I saw you coming', in honour of Harry Enfield's West London antique shop.

If I was one of the people you don't like, would I care?, it's the car we're talking about here, it looks well put together, solid, and it's performance isn't in question, bespoke?, well, why not?, 120 years ago when you ordered a Rolls or a Bentley, you were just getting a Chassis and an Engine, then, you chose who was going to built your car to your specifications, so, now, it's a similar service, I like the look of it.

This isnt a similar service at all, you order a Conti GT and it will look like every other Conti GT, but it might have different colour trim, or different leather, or wood, or chrome, or wheels, one thing it doesnt have is a different body, and it isnt built to your specifications, a Mulliner did/was, its like MINI and "Cooper", in the past if you bought an original Mini Cooper it was a little sports car that went racing or rallying with great success, now you can get a MINI Cooper the size of a house with a rattly low powered diesel engine and room for the kids and a dog, that would fall over if it was ever shown a race track or rally stage.. But hey who cares "I paid extra to be an individual"..   

A Golf GTI is an ICON, a SEAT Leon with the same engine, same power, same chassis and gearbox, but a lower price tag isnt.. Hmmm, unlike this "Mulliner" at least the Leon has a different body, but they all have one thing in common - VW..

Hoping , as you realised the point, no, you can't get your own body design on it ( to much to fit under it these days) , but, the interior I'd assume is your playground, do almost whatever is possible, it will be individual, your taste certainly, I'm not a fan of cream colored interior, shows up the dirt to much, but the feeling of serenity as you gently drive along must be great, and when you want to be all Nigel Mansell you can, yep, money no object, no dependents , it would be on my bucket list.
