The 580 HP Breitling

 

Words by: Jared Paul Stern

 

Seven L-39 C Albatros jets that can reach speeds of up to 565 mph.

The world’s largest professional civilian flight team performing in jets. The Breitling Jet Team, sponsored by our favorite Swiss watchmaker, is already pretty damn impressive. Now Bentley, their automotive partner par excellence, is paying tribute to them on the ground with the new Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series, in a limited edition run of just seven examples – one for each jet on the team. To produce the bespoke vehicles Bentley’s Mulliner division re-imagined the famed 582 hp Continental GT Speed to “mirror the distinctive look of the Breitling Jets, fusing extreme customization with immense speed.”

The exterior of each car is painted in a duo-tone split of Hallmark and Onyx with highlights in Breitling’s signature bright yellow, reflecting the trademark look of the L-39 Albatros Jets. Inside the seats feature Breitling Yellow accents as well. A series of logos and graphics on the headrests highlight the number of each car and the jet that inspired it. The dashboard’s carbon fibre fascia panel displays an image of the seven planes in their signature Avenger flight formation, with the jet corresponding to each car highlighted in Breitling Yellow.The series will debut at the Boeing Seafair Airshow on 31st July in Seattle, where the Breitling Jet Team is performing. In a bit of old-school showmanship W.O. Bentley himself would have appreciated, the key to each car will be handed over to its owner by the corresponding plane’s pilot – but only after the GT Speed’s new owner has gone for a spin in the jet that inspired it. Now if you want a suit to match the car to match the plane to match the watch, we can definitely do you up something sweet…..

Words by: JPS for duncan quinn It may surprise you to learn that the most beautiful Porsche ever built is not the 911. Rather its faster older sibling the 904, aka the Carrera GTS, introduced a year after the now iconic coupe. Despite its astonishing success at the track – it clinched a first overall […]
