Bentley Continental GT limited edition celebrates Pikes Peak record

The package features lots of carbon fiber and a unique Radium exterior color.

Bentley has revealed a limited-edition Continental GT that celebrates the car's record-breaking run at the Pikes Peak hill climb.

The luxury Grand Tourer in June set a new record for production cars on the 12.42-mile course, climbing nearly 5,000 feet via 156 corners in just 10 minutes and 18.4 seconds to beat the previous best time by 8.4 seconds.

The celebratory production car features a carbon-fiber body kit and bold Radium by Mulliner exterior paint, with gloss black detailing and Acid Green brake calipers. The Pirelli P Zero Color Editin tires even feature Radium accents outside the 22-inch black wheels.

The green and black theme continues inside with Radium thread stitching on Alcantara, with a Beluga secondary hide. Carbon-fiber trim has been added throughout the cabin, complementing the unique embroidery and graphics showing the Pikes Peak course and record time.

Bentley's massive W12 engine carries over from the standard Continental GT with 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, propelling the large coupe to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and achieving a top speed of 207 mph.

Only 15 examples will be built, each presumably fetching a significant premium over the GT's $216,000 base price.
