Uber-Rare Bentley Continental GT S ‘Bathurst Edition’ Lands in Australian Showroom

Few things on earth cooler than a bonafide Bentley racing car. The unique sound of the engine, the styling, and the juxtaposition between luxury and race are epic. And now, you can get in on the action and own a piece of Bentley history as Mulliner and Bentley Sydney have created a pair of special Bentleys inspired by the Bathurst 12hr, a race where the brand was victorious in 2020 with its Continental GT3 racer.

“We are proud to help Bentley celebrate that famous result with this pair of incredibly special and unique Continental GT S vehicles, much like the pair of Continental GT3 entries that were so impressive on the Mountain for many memorable years,” said Shane Rudzis, Bathurst 12 Hour Event Director.

Two Continental GT S models have been specified with a sought-after combination of exterior paint options, interior finishes, and accents throughout. And we had the chance to check out the cars in the flesh at an exclusive showing in Sydney.

First, a Continental GT S finished in bright Apple Green, contrasted by a Beluga black roof, wing mirrors, lower bumper and rear boot. A number seven painted grille is the most obvious reference to the racing heritage. Blackline Specification carries throughout the exterior, replacing the bright chrome with polished black. This extends to the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser in carbon fibre.

Inside, the first Continental GT S utilises a mixture of Leather and Dinamica in Beluga with Apple Green accents. We find it the perfect blend between race and luxury, further emphasised by the words “BATHURST” which has been stitched into the headrests, and ‘One of Two’ into the treadplates. The names of the winning drivers and the number seven adorn the centre console.

The second car is finished in Silver Tempest to reflect the introduction of the second-generation Continental GT3 launched in late 2017. Interior and exterior are kept in line with car number one, including the engine specification, a free-revving 4.0-litre V8 producing 404kW (550 PS) and 770 Nm. A standard sports exhaust further emphasises the luxury racecar feel.

In terms of pricing, these exclusive models will likely find a buyer no matter the cost, but they don’t come cheap. Bentley Sydney has shared the pricing for the Continental GT S ‘Bathurst Edition’ in Apple Green and it’s priced at $828,777 AUD drive away. That’s well in excess of the standard Continental GT S that’s priced from $459,600 before on-road costs. At least we can sleep knowing each car will be supplied with a commemorative framed artefact and a 1:18 scale model of the winning car.
