Bentley Continental GT commemorating Pikes Peak win is one green machine

Back in June, the Bentley Continental GT set a production-car record for the Pikes Peak hill climb, and now there’s a limited edition to celebrate. Maybe the wait was so the brand’s Mulliner division could work up a batch of the car’s special green paint, which Bentley calls Radium.

The green hue is taken from the hill climb car’s livery, and it appears not only on the body, but also on the Pirelli P Zero tires and inside as contrast stitching, floor mat edging, and embroidery of Pikes Peak on the headrests. The not-quite-matching color on the brake calipers is Bentley’s Acid Green. Besides Radium, the model also is offered in black.

The special edition also features Pikes Peak graphics on the front fenders, a carbon fiber body kit, a black roof panel, black side mirrors, and 22-inch wheels also in black. Buyers can opt for Bentley’s “100” grille (honoring the brand’s centenary year), as pictured here.

Besides the Radium green accents, the interior also comes with carbon fiber and gloss-black trim. A graphic showing one of five different sections of the track appears above the glove box, along with the record time of 10:18.488. Bentley’s rotating center display also is included along with comfort-spec front seats and deep pile floor mats. All of the cars will be fitted with the 626-hp W12 engine.

Pricing for the Pikes Peak limited edition depends on buyer specification, so there’s no official MSRP. Nor is there a specific model name. But Bentley is saying that only 15 cars with this special set of extras will be built, and even without a name, it shouldn’t be hard to distinguish them from other Continental GTs.
