Limited Rarity With only 120 units of each model set to be produced, the Speed Edition 12 guarantees exclusivity and becomes a sought-after collector’s item. These distinguished vehicles pay homage to the engine that has been the driving force behind Bentley’s success, both on the road and in the hearts of automotive enthusiasts worldwide.
The Legendary Bentley W12 Engine Introduced in 2003, the Bentley W12 engine marked a new chapter in Bentley’s history as it propelled the Continental GT, the company’s first all-new model under Volkswagen Group ownership. The distinctive W-formation of the 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 enabled Bentley to achieve exceptional power, efficiency, and refinement without compromising on compactness. Over time, the W12 has undergone continuous evolution, resulting in a 37% increase in power, a remarkable 54% increase in torque, and a notable 25% reduction in emissions. In the Speed Edition 12 models, the W12 now generates up to an impressive 659PS (650 bhp) @ 5000-6000 rpm, delivering the famed Bentley ‘tidal wave’ of torque with a peak of 900 Nm available from as low as 1500 rpm, sustaining its force through to 5000 rpm.
Exterior: Elegantly Distinctive The external features of the Speed Edition 12 models exude understated distinction, captivating those who appreciate automotive finesse. Notably, these models boast exclusive silver brake calipers, a distinguishing feature not found in any other Bentley model. While the Continental GT and Convertible models showcase Speed Edition 12 badging on the front fender, the Bentayga and Flying Spur models proudly display Edition 12 badges on the rear quarter, accompanied by the existing Speed badge. Opening the bonnet reveals a numbered Edition 12 plaque, proudly positioned on the engine’s cover, signifying the exclusivity of each vehicle.
Impeccable Interior Craftsmanship Step inside the Edition 12 models and experience a masterclass in craftsmanship. Every detail exudes Bentley’s dedication to individuality and luxury. All Edition 12 models offer Bentley’s Speed color splits, with the main color being the sleek Beluga black, complemented by optional Brunel blue, Cricket Ball red, Linen, or Orange accents. The high-gloss Grand Black veneer elegantly adorns the cabin, epitomizing sophistication.
Indulgent and Unique Features Distinctive to this limited edition series, the seats are adorned with Mulliner Silver piping and intricately embroidered Edition 12 namestyle, showcasing the meticulous attention to detail. The upper seat areas boast exquisite quilting and contrast stitching, exhibiting a stunning graduated three-color ‘fade’ from Anthracite through Porpoise to Stratos. The quilted door panels further exemplify the artistry of Bentley’s interior design.
Every aspect of the Speed Edition 12 is thoughtfully considered, right down to the smallest details. The organ stop air vents feature a machined numeral ’12’ on the control face, paying homage to the legendary W12 engine. Additionally, the Grand Black veneer facia facing the front seat passenger proudly displays the firing sequence of the W12 engine, elegantly etched alongside an inlaid Speed Edition 12 badge. These elements create a truly immersive and captivating environment for both driver and passengers.
Commemorating a Legacy: The 15% Scale Model W12 Block As a final touch, customers of the Speed Edition 12 will receive a meticulously crafted 15% scale model of the Bentley W12 engine block. These extraordinary scale models are cast using aluminum sourced from a full-size W12 engine block, serving as a permanent memento of Bentley’s significant engineering achievements. Displayed on a desk, cabinet, or shelf, the scale model W12 block stands as a testament to the power and ingenuity that has defined Bentley’s legacy.
