Bentley unveiled this past weekend at the Australian GP a limited-run Continental GT called “Black Speed” which was developed with help from the company’s bespoke Mulliner division.

Despite the images showing a left-hand drive vehicle, the latest Continental GT special edition was created exclusively for Australia and New Zealand which are both RHD markets. Only ten of these will ever be made and all will adopt a rather sinister appearance with tinted headlights and taillights, hand-painted pinstripe, and glossy black 21-inch wheels.

Both the exterior and interior are adorned by red accents and there’s also the option of a carbon ceramic brake package sourced from the hardcore Continental GT3-R. The cabin adopts a red & black theme, “Black Speed” lettering in red on the headrests, aluminum trim, and red highlights for the Breitling clock and other surfaces.

Available starting this week only with the mighty W12 engine, the Bentley Continental GT Black Speed kicks off at $525,000 in Australia. It goes all the way up to $600,000 with all the available optional goodies, including the $20,000 carbon ceramic brakes.

Speaking about the newest special edition, Bentley’s Asia-Pacific Sales Manager, David Simpson, described it as “probably the most aggressive car that we’ve made.” He went on to specify the limited-run model came to life as a response from customer feedback as many from the Land Down Under have asked Bentley for a more aggressive Continental GT Speed.
