Bentley Continental GT and GTC Series 51 to Debut at Frankfurt
Both models are said to come with unique exterior design elements and a distinct interior color combination.
According to a statement released by the manufacturer, “Series 51 is named after the year that the first official styling department was established in Crewe by the gifted John Blatchley, who shaped the original and iconic 1950s Bentley Continentals.”
The first example of the Continental GTC to be showcased at Frankfurt features Imperial Blue as a main and secondary hide, Linen seat and door inserts and Newmarket Tan as the accent colour.
Interior details include diamond quilting, contrast piping for the seats and doors as well as bespoke Series 51 treadplates. The Dark and Bright ‘Engine Spin’ aluminium options provide a striking contrast with darker and lighter hide colour choices and a special, limited-edition Amboyna veneer reserved for Series 51.
Unfortunately, Bentley did not give any pricing information, but it says that both models are already available for ordering.
