Continental GT Number 9 Edition by Mulliner

25 March 2019

Bentley has created the ultimate collector's version of the all-new Continental GT to celebrate the company's centenary in 2019.

The Continental GT Number 9 Edition by Mulliner is inspired by Bentley's illustrious motorsport past and incorporates a number of distinctive features into the world’s most luxurious Grand Tourer. Just 100 examples will be handbuilt by Mulliner in Crewe, England, based on the Continental GT this year.

Number 9 Edition by Mulliner pays homage to Sir Henry Ralph Stanley 'Tim' Birkin – one of the original, 'Bentley Boys' of the 1920s and '30s. Birkin was a Bentley customer, investor and a racing driver, full of entrepreneurial spirit and ambition – and through the determined collaboration of man and machine, the 4 1⁄2 litre ‘Blower’ was born.

No.9 was the supercharged Bentley 'Blower' Sir Tim raced at the 1930 Le Mans 24 Hours. He commissioned the production of a series of 4 1⁄2 Litre Bentleys, powered by a supercharger developed with independent engineer Amherst Villiers. Power increased from around 110 bhp to 175 bhp with the supercharger installation.

The imposing green car has since become the iconic racing Bentley of the pre-war years.
