Bentley Beverly Hills has used the dizzying portfolio of finishes, materials, and features on offer via Bentley Mulliner to commission a limited edition of three Continental GTC Speed models in colors and finishes that recall the golden age of Hollywood. 1920’s residents such as Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Will Rogers, and Rudolph Valentino gave Beverley Hills a cachet that it has never lost, and the colors of that Art Deco era have been brilliantly evoked in the Jetstream Blue, Sage Green, and Hollywood Blush Pink finish of the three Mulliner Bentleys.
The first of the three Beverley Hills special edition Continental GTC Speed models feature Jetstream II blue finish for both the bodywork and the 22” ten-spoke wheels, with the subtlest of pinstripes to the wheel edge. Highlights of the interior include Linen main hide and contrast stitching with secondary hide in Imperial Blue. Sweeping from waist rail to waist rail across the dashboard is a high gloss Piano Linen over Imperial Blue dual veneer. All models feature the Styling, Touring, and City specifications and as a subtle nod to Hollywood’s golden era the words ‘The Beverly Hills’ are rendered in a ‘30s typeface on the illuminated sill plate.
The second of the three Beverly Hills commissions mirrors the specification of the first, but with the pastel tone of Sage Green as the dominant exterior color on bodywork and wheels. The interior’s dual color split features Cumbrian Green and Linen, with the same two colors inventively used as a dual veneer on the dash and waist rails.
The final Beverly Hills commission of the trio is finished in a subtle, pale ‘Hollywood Blush’ pink. A harmonious contrast is provided by the sumptuous interior, with Linen as the main hide and the deep red Cricketball hide as the secondary contrast. The same two colors are selected for the dual veneer on the dashboard and waistrails.
Describing the inspiration for the three-car Beverly Hills Collection, Danika Quinn, Bentley Brand Manager comments: “Beverly Hills has always been the epitome of glamour, particularly during Hollywood’s Golden Age. This collection is a nod to the bygone era of Old Hollywood encapsulating the spirit of that time; bold white wall tires, soft color palettes, and unique designs that illustrate the “class” of classic cars. The experts at Bentley Mulliner brought my vision to life and helped curate a masterpiece collection for Bentley Beverly Hills that not only exemplifies the allure and grandeur of yesteryear but also highlights the refinement and grace of modern-day Bentley craftsmanship.”
With its W12 engine delivering 659 PS (650 bhp), a 0-60 mph sprint time of 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds) and a top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h) the Continental GT Speed Convertible sits alongside its coupe sibling at the performance pinnacle of the Continental GT family. The Beverly Hills Collection shows what can be achieved through the Mulliner personal commissioning process, where the customer, retailer, and Mulliner’s design team collaborate to create truly unique cars.
