JCT600 Bentley Leeds and Bentley Newcastle have announced a special limited edition Bentley Continental to celebrate the dealer group’s 70th anniversary.
To mark JCT600’s 70th year as a private family owned retailer of cars, and nearly 20 years representing Bentley in Yorkshire and the North East, the company has created three unique Bentley GT V8S models.
The limited edition vehicles are in Hallmark Silver with Dragon Red exterior detailing to the lower styling areas, wing mirrors and radiator surround.
A '70' logo is incorporated into the black grille matrix, reminiscent of the racing Bentleys that successfully competed at Le Mans in the 20s and 30s.
A new feature is the courtesy lamps housed in the wing mirrors which sign 'Bentley' wings onto the ground.
For the interior, the Mulliner craftsmen at Bentley have created special '70th Anniversary' tread plates and emblem stitching to the headrests combined with a 'Cobra' design for the seating with Beluga Black and Hotspur red.
“Bentley Motors kindly agreed to work with us to design these unique Bentleys and they really are masterpieces which more than do justice to our 70th anniversary,” said Nik Boddy, JCT600’s brand manager for Bentley.
“JCT600 is a proud patron of the Prince’s Trust and, as such, we will be donating £1,000 to this excellent charity for each '70th' car sold.
“Each of these stylish cars will offer exceptional value for money with the additional features and all of the special Mulliner detailing provided with the compliments of JCT600. As well as celebrating our 70 years, we’re also taking the opportunity to thank all of the customers who have supported us and the Bentley brand during this time and whose loyalty and friendship we value so highly.”
The cars will be available from December.
