Bentley introduces GT Mulliner Blackline

The world’s oldest automotive coachbuilder, Mulliner, has unveiled a contemporary twist on ultimate luxury for the Bentley Continental GT and GT Convertible.

Now available to any customer, Blackline features are designed to complement an exclusive range of Mulliner details, offering a darker, sleeker alternative to bright chrome and a chance.

The new Blackline specification further extends a portfolio of personalisation options both synonymous with Mulliner, and unmatched by any rival.

Bentley has introduced a Mulliner Blackline specification for its GT and GT Convertible, building on the customer popularity and success of the striking Blackline external treatment, which is offered as an option across the full Bentley range.

By bringing a black alternative to the exterior chrome-work on Bentley’s class-leading Grand Tourer, Mulliner says it has presented a darker side to the luxury brand’s popular four-seater, complementing the myriad options available to customers.

Created by the skilled craftspeople at Mulliner, the GT Mulliner Blackline features a host of exterior changes in comparison to the current GT and GT Convertible Mulliner derivatives, delivering a contemporary twist on ultimate luxury to its pinnacle GT models. The new option is in response to the increasing demand for black versions of brightwork, with 38% of Continental GT family orders globally now including this option.

For the Blackline version, all of the exterior brightwork excluding the Bentley ‘Winged B’ badge turns black, as does the radiator grille bezel. In place of the satin silver upper mirror caps typical of a GT Mulliner, for the Blackline version the mirrors are finished in gloss Beluga black. The signature Mulliner matrix wing vents are also blackened and finished with bright Mulliner branding. The radiator grille remains black with bright edges to the 3D design and the lower bumper grilles are also finished in black.

The GT Mulliner Blackline models also feature 22” painted black rims, with self-levelling badges featuring a chrome ring. Alternatively, a black Mulliner wheel with contrast polished ‘pockets’ will be available in the near future.

The sumptuous, striking interior of the GT Mulliner Blackline remains unchanged from the existing Mulliner edition, allowing customers to enjoy any colour combination they choose as part of Mulliner’s limitless offering, or one of eight recommended three-colour combinations, using Bentley’s wide palette of hides and threads.

As part of the standard Mulliner Driving Specification, the interior incorporates Bentley’s unique “Diamond in Diamond” quilting for the seats, doors and rear quarter panels, featuring both contrast and accent stitching running through the diamond layout. With almost 400,000 stitches in the cabin of each car, each diamond contains exactly 712 individual stitches, all precisely aligned to point to the centre of the diamond it creates. A true mark of unrivalled automotive craftsmanship.

Depending on global region, customers can choose between Bentley’s now iconic 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 delivering 466kW, or the dynamic 4.0-litre V8, which offers 404kW, both of which provide grand touring range with the effortless performance expected of a pinnacle Grand Tourer.

The addition of the Blackline edition to the Mulliner range of GT models reinforces Bentley’s position as the world’s leading manufacturer of luxury sporting Grand Tourers, whilst offering bespoke solutions for the most discerning customers who want cars as unique as their own personalities. In short, a contemporary twist on the world’s ultimate luxury coupé.
