2011 Bentley Continental GTC/GTC Speed 80-11 Editions -- First Look

By Editors on August 18, 2010 6:47 AM

For the well-heeled who simply don't find sufficient exclusivity in the likes of a "regular" Bentley Continental GTC, the automaker has created a pair of even rarer U.S.-only variations, the 2011 Bentley Continental GTC/GTC Speed 80-11 Editions. Presented for the first time at Pebble Beach and designated after the number of each that will be built and their model year, these 80-11 Editions retain the same 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbo engines found in their standard counterparts but add unique cosmetic touches, including the introduction of a new and exclusive "Midnight" exterior color.

Setting off the 552-horsepower 2011 Bentley Continental GTC 80-11 are new 20-inch, 14-spoke alloy diamond-polished wheels with unique black center caps featuring the maker's distinctive 'B' emblem. Opting for the hotter 600-horse 2011 Bentley Continental GTC Speed 80-11 brings a set of Supersports-spec 20-inch wheels, here finished with a special dark tint and red brake calipers. Both cars also feature Union Jack badges on their front fenders, a Dark Grey Metallic soft top and the hand-crafted Mulliner alloy fuel-filler cap.

Interior differentiations are equally understated. Both models share special Piano Black veneer accents, drilled-aluminum sport pedals, special "80-11 Edition" signature doorsill/console badging and supple Beluga leather upholstery. But in place of the GTC 80-11's white contrast stitching/piping and bright engine-turned aluminum dash the GTC Speed 80-11 sports red accents and a dark-finish dash.

The first of these distinctive Bentley Continental convertible models is set to arrive at dealers in the fall. Pricing for the 2011 Bentley Continental GTC 80-11 will open at $220,545 while the 2011 Bentley Continental GTC Speed 80-11 starts at $247,545.
