2011 Bentley Continental GT with Mulliner Styling Specification

Usually when a new car is released, tuning companies are just foaming at the mouth to create a tuning package that will transform the look of the vehicle. This time, Bentley has beaten the tuning firms to the punch by releasing a brand new feature created especially for the Continental GT . The "Mulliner Styling Specification" was created by Raul Pires, Head of Exterior Design at Bentley, to give customers the opportunity to fit their luxury coupe with a range of exterior styling options.

"The Mulliner Styling Specification, with its sharper lines and darker, lower appearance subtly underscores the extrovert, flamboyant nature of our new Coupe. It delivers a more personalized, sportive interpretation of a luxurious, refined GT," said Raul Pires, Bentley’s head of exterior design.

The new Mulliner Styling Specification comes in a Classic Pack, along with a few additional design options to tweak your Bentley. Prices for the exterior modifications have yet to be announced.

Exterior and Interior

The Mulliner Styling Specification begins with the Classic Pack. This pack comes with a front bumper splitter, strakes integrated into the lower air intake grilles, extension blades positioned beneath the sills, and the rear diffuser which are all made from a specially commissioned, black high-gloss carbon-fiber.

In addition to the Classic Pack, Bentley has also come up with a few design options. These options include a carbon fiber rear spoiler, carbon-fiber door mirror cowls, curved wing vents, and 21-inch 7-spoke Elegant alloy wheels in a dramatic black-painted finish with contrasting bright machined detailing. The dark chrome mesh vents (framed by a carbon-fiber bezel) are positioned just behind the front wheel arches and offer improved heat diffusion as well as forcefully underlining the Continental GT’s high-performance credentials.

It looks very decent and sophisticated on its body paint! Moreover, it is really a good thing that it has an impressive and powerful engine which could truly give a nice and awesome speed performance on this.

This vehicle of Bentley is already looking great and fabulous on its white body paint, and I’m glad that they still use an impressive and powerful engine on this one even though it isn’t a sports car.

I love the aesthetic and decent looks of this one and for a sedan, its engine is already too powerful, which is one of its striking features. smiley Anyway, I hope that it also had an impressive interior.

Even if, it only had a simple styling and detailing, I must say that it is still very captivating on its looks because of its hygienic body paint. Even so, I’m quite curious on its interior.

This is really my dream car, From its exterior and interior everything is perfect and done with best concept. Hopefully to have this soon.

Yeah, I was impressed with the styling of the car. However, the produced power output of the v12 technology is kind of less powerful.

I really love the speed performance of the car. The styling look so aggressive. And I think this car has a tough competitor.

The engine is enough for this one and I like the specification they made on this one. I also like the exterior design of the car. I’m looking for the pricing of the car, and they did not put it
there but I hope it will not be expensive.

Well, I don’ think that it has an impressive speed performance. For a W12 engine I was expecting for higher figure than 500 hp! I guess this car needs a boost on its power output.

Among the Bentley model, the continental has an impressive performance since it was based from racing car. However, still we can see an elegant styling for the car. The engine performance is great as well.

I agreed. No more surprising about this car, this just appears as a luxury car, but as you can see its engine, more probably, the engine is going to be reason why people will buy this stuff.

I love the powerful engine of this 2011 Bentley plus the interior was really impressive but the exterior design is not impressive at all. 

Actually, I really don’t see anything breath taking on the exterior of this one. But the interior and the engine is definitely a different matter. I really like the work that they did on those.

It has indeed a wonderful and expensive look. I wonder about the price of this one. I was shocked to see this car in the Sports Car category even if it fits perfectly to the luxury ones.

Yeah, it’s really too bad that they are not doing anything to change the engine on this one. It would have been better if they added just a tiny bit. But then again, I would consider this one.

Actually, I am starting to really like this car. It made the Continental GT look much sexier with those body styling. I just wished that they have also tweaked the engine.

I really don’t find anything spectacular about the looks of this one. But I still find it really gorgeous, and the good thing about this one is that they made this rather simple.

I would say that there is nothing really that spectacular for this one. But that doesn’t necessarily meant that the whole thing is ugly. In fact, it is really gorgeous.

I am not a big fan of Bentley’s models, but this one actually looks good. I really like all the upgrades that they have put into this one, especially on the engines.

Same thought here. I like the elegance of this car but I think I haven’t seen it on its newer model. However, with the performance of this car, Well, I guess there’s still a reason to love this vehicle.
