Bentley is commemorating the 20th anniversary of its sixth triumph at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 100th anniversary of the race by producing a limited edition of Continental GT Coupés and Continental GTC’s.

Each vehicle will be powered by the highly successful 12-cylinder Bentley W12 engine. The Le Mans Collection features unique exterior and interior designs inspired by the Le Mans-winning Speed 8 #7.

All Le Mans Collection models come equipped with the three-way Bentley Rotating Display, which allows drivers to select from a touchscreen, dual veneer, or analogue dials. However, instead of the standard central dial, a Vitrine showcasing an engine valve from the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 of the 2003 Le Mans winning Bentley Speed 8 is displayed.

Mulliner, Bentley’s personal commissioning division, drew inspiration from the dark green Speed 8 racing cars that dominated at Le Mans in 2003 to create the Le Mans Collection, which is a tribute to the long and illustrious partnership between Bentley and the Le Mans 24 Hours.

The collection’s verdant green exterior and a sliver of the Speed 8 engine showcased in the fascia are just a few of the features that highlight this heartfelt homage.
