1st Completed Continental GTZ On Sale for 1.3 Million Euros

The Bentley Continental GTZ by Carrozzeria Zagato was unveiled at the 2008 Geneva Auto Show. After realizing the potential their creation really had, the famous Milanese coachbuilders decided to manufacture a limited edition of the bespoke luxury coupe. And by limited we mean something even more limited than the maximum number of fingers a normal human can possess. Only nine examples identical to the Geneva concept car are supposed to be manufactured.

Any Bentley Continental GT Speed owner could request a GTZ conversion by Zagato for a nominal fee of only 550.000 Euros. Remember that does not include the 150.000+ Euros the “regular” car already costs. Anyway, just so it happens that the first completed example of the limited series was already built and it's offered for sale by an automotive broker (read: automotive speculator) on the newly-launched "E-bay of the rich"

The requested price? 1.3 million Euros, which means the guy only makes about half a million profit from the whole deal. Pretty sweet!

The British Racing Green behemoth is technically unmodified, with the more-than-adequate but otherwise standard 610 hp twin-turbo W12 mill under the ginormous hood. The exterior and interior have been modified in true “carrozzeria” style, on the other hand. To give you an idea about the level of craftsmanship involved, the LED tail-lights cost 50.000 Euros alone.

The interior is handcrafted and engulfed with a bespoke sumptuous leather that apparently is even more exclusive than the standard upholstery to be found in your “regular” Continental GT Speed. Well, there you have it. If you have money to burn and are on the look-out for one of the most exclusive four-wheeled works of art in the world today, take out your paycheck but first head over to Jameslist.
