Bentley’s Mulliner customization department provides a modern and currently very popular touch. The new Blackline Specification gives the Continental GT and Continental GT Convertible various black and darkened accents. It is expected that up to 40 percent of new orders will be delivered with this trim option. Previously, similar add-on parts were already available as individual items in the options list. Many customers are now tired of the chrome trim typical of British luxury cars. So the radiator grille, air intakes, side air outlets, exhaust tailpipes and side window surrounds are now in gloss black. Only the winged B logos at the front and rear are in silver. Instead of the silver exterior mirror caps of the Continental GT Mulliner, these are painted in “Beluga Black” here.
In the wheel arches, the Blackline Specification features 22-inch black-painted alloy wheels. These have self-leveling logos on the wheel hubcaps. In the near future, there will be an alternative black Mulliner wheel with contrasting polished pockets. Bentley makes no changes to the Continental GT Mulliner’s extensively luxurious interior with the Blackline Specification. Customers have an almost unlimited choice of leather colors. For the time being, the noble three-color combinations have only been released in eight different options so far. The seats, door cards and side panels feature the elaborate diamond-in-diamond embroidery stitching with a total of around 400,000 stitches per vehicle. Depending on the region, the choice for the Blackline Specification is the 550-hp V8 and/or the 635-hp W12 engine.
