Bentley has recently launched a new special edition for its Continental GT convertible by Mulliner, the inspiration coming from luxury yachts, it is called the Galene Edition.
The car was made in collaboration with British yacht experts, Princess Yachts, and has been commissioned by the bespoke customization division of Bentley, Mulliner.
The car features a Glacier White and Sequin Blue hue on the exterior, with clean design lines and materials internally mimicking high class yachts. It provides the ultimate blend of oceanic lifestyle with luxury convertible motoring. The design was motivated with the ideal of crystal clear waters and has been used as the theme throughout the car. A dark blue hood and striking 21” polished Propeller Wheels complete Mulliner’s external signature on the Galene Edition.
The interior is reminiscent of the high end materials that are used in luxury yachts as well as Bentley automobiles. The seats are made with Linen and Portland hides with Camel hand cross stitching, the door panels are Linen, Portland and Brunel. The dashboard, center console and armrests are finished using Linen, Brunel and Camel. The headrest has been detailed with embroidery is in Camel while the stowage case has been finished in Glacier White while being in lined in Brunel Alcantara.
The Glacier White external paintwork is echoed inside, in the stowage case and fascia panels, which can be specified with a unique handpainted Jaume Vilardell illustration of a super yacht alongside the Mulliner script in each car. It also coats the clock bezel in the Galene Edition, creating an interior space full of light and luxury.
A new material finish was also created for the Galene Edition, Pinstripe Walnut. The surface is a more open-pore form with a natural finish in the center stack console.
The engine in the Galene edition is the same as the standard model, a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. This produces approximately 500 horsepower with 486 pound-feet of torque. The unique four layered retractable roof keeps the occupants in a similar undisturbed environment as the hard top ensuring that ride quality isn’t being compromised.
Only 30 examples of this magnificent car will be made making it extremely limited.
