British luxury car maker Bentley has launched a limited run of 7 cars paying tribute to the Breitling Jet Team, the world’s largest professional civilian flight team performing on jets.
The limited run of Bentley Gontinental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series (wow what a mouthful!), is to commemorate Breitling Jet Team’s grand tour and performance across the United States and Canada.
The Mulliner division at Bentley re-imagined the Continental GT Speed to mirror the distinct look of the Breitling Jets.
The cars are scheduled to debut at the Boeing Seafair Airshow in Seattle on July 31, and the car is limited to seven cars because they each correspond with one of the seven Breitling Jets.
The key for each car will be handed over to its owner by the corresponding plane’s pilot, but only after they experienced a flight in the jet that inspired their car.
The cars are colored in a duo-tone split of Hallmark and Onyx with yellow highlights that match the exact Pantone of Breitling’s yellow.
The interiors are also done in the same exact bespoke color scheme featuring accents in the Breitling yellow.
Each car will have a carbon fiber panel on the dash that displays an image of the seven planes in their signature flight formation, with the jet corresponding to the car highlighted in Breitling Yellow.
The car also has logos and graphics on the headrests that highlight the number of the car and the jet that inspires it.
