Bentley Motors has revealed the limited-edition Continental GTC and GTC Speed 80-11 models at the 60th Annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Both are designed exclusively for the North American market. The 80-11 models are limited to only 80 examples of each drophead in 2011.
The GTC 80-11 features new 20 inch, 14-spoke alloy diamond wheels, polished with black center caps featuring Bentley’s distinctive ‘B’ emblem. The more performance-oriented GTC Speed 80-11 offers Supersports’ 20 inch wheels, now finished with a dark tint, and displaying sporty red brake calipers underneath. Both cars have Union Jack brightware badges featured on the front fenders.
Secondly, a new and unique color – Midnight – is available for these convertibles. The 80-11 GTC and GTC convertibles have the Dark Grey Metallic soft top and the Mulliner fuel-filler cap as standard.
Two different interiors are available. The main leather hide choice for both vehicles is Beluga, and the contrast stitching, piping and Bentley emblems are white on the GTC and Pillar Box Red on the GTC Speed. To complement the Piano Black veneers on both 80-11 Editions, the engine-turned aluminum dash has a bright finish in the GTC and a sportier dark finish for the GTC Speed. Race-inspired drilled alloy sport foot pedals are standard on both vehicles and the vehicles’ treadplates and a badge on the console are branded with the “80-11 Edition” signature.
The 80-11 Edition GTCs and the 80-11 Edition GTC Speeds arrive at Bentley dealers in fall of 2010 as model-year 2011 vehicles. Prices have not been revealed.
