MORE ABOUT THIS CAR :::
Coinciding with the 10th Anniversary of Bentley’s 2003 overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and marking the 90th Anniversary of the inaugural running of the race itself, in which Bentley set the fastest lap, Crewe introduced a special series of Limited Edition cars called the Le Mans Limited Edition.
The Le Mans Limited Edition cars came in six versions spread over the Continental GT and Mulsanne ranges, each version consisting of 48 individually numbered cars built in total. Each version carries a unique specification and is named after/inspired by a Le Mans winning Bentley driver from the company’s illustrious past:
The JOHN DUFF (1924) specification was Moonbeam silver paint, two-tone Linen and Beluga interior with contrast stitching and piano black/bright aluminum trim.
The DUDLEY BANJAFIELD (1927) version was finished in Verdant green with two-tone Linen and Cumbrian Green interior with contrast stitching and burr walnut/bright aluminum trim.
The WOOLF BARNATO (1928-’30) spec came in Granite grey over Hotspur red hides, and featured contrasting Beluga stitching plus carbon fiber trim for the Continental Series or burr walnut/dark aluminum veneers in the Mulsanne.
The TIM BIRKIN (1929) specification featured Glacier White exterior, Beluga interior, white stitching and piano black and bright aluminum fascias and veneers.
The GLEN KIDSTON (1930) came in Dark Sapphire paint, two-tone Newmarket Tan/Imperial Blue interior, inverted stitching and burr walnut and dark aluminum trim.
The GUY SMITH (2003) was Beluga black with all Beluga hides, Hotspur red stitching and piano black/dark aluminum trim.
The most sought after of these has to be considered a GT Speed (uniquely only available as a coupe for the Le Mans edition) in Guy Smith spec, like you see here. With the brooding all black colour scheme complimented by the exclusive LE gloss black/machined wheels, plus extreme 205mph performance from a 616hp/590lb-ft W12, and standard Mulliner Driving Specification, it makes a for a very compelling package. Additionally, since options WERE allowed on these cars, some are even more unique, and that, again, is the case here.
This car is further upgraded with optional full carbon fiber fascias and console trim including the roof console, a $5,280 option, plus all red contrast stitching (beyond the red Le Mans logos that were standard on the headrests), red painted brake calipers, ventilated and massaging seats, Heated steering wheel, back-up camera, deep pile carpets, privacy phone handset, SIM card reader, Valet key, fr/r ashtray and cigar lighter, and space saver spare wheel. Over all, the nearly $20,000 in options took the original MSRP to $238,790.
Included with purchase are the complete original handbooks, both remote keys and the Valet key, a spotless CarFax report, maintenance records, a copy of the original window sticker, the battery charger, complete CPO inspection from our Factory-authorized Service Centre along with recommended annual service which was just completed.
The original Factory Warranty is in effect until November 26, 2016/unlimited mileage, and an additional 12 month Bentley CPO extension is included in the asking price of the car.
Whether you appreciate this car for its limited production status or you simply want one of the finest late-model Continental GT Speeds on the market in the best colour combination and excellent options, this Speed has to rank at the very top of the list.
