Bentley to mark W12 retirement with special Speed ​​Edition 12 models

In April 2024, the era of the W12 engine will end in Crewe – the iconic Bentley 6.0-liter turbo engine will give way to hybrid power plants based on V6 and V8 engines. And to honor Bentley’s iconic engine, the company will release the Speed ​​Edition 12, a limited edition car with a 660-horsepower unit under the hood. And along with the car, buyers will receive another W12 in the kit, but only in the form of a scale model.

The Speed ​​Edition 12, as the name implies, will be based on the Speed ​​modification of the Bentayga crossover, the Flying Spur sedan, the Continental GT coupe and the Continental GT Convertible. Each model will be released in an edition of 120 copies. Visually distinguish the special version will allow silver brake calipers, nameplates Speed ​​Edition 12 and a separate emblem on the engine cover.

The cars will receive a Blackline body decor package and black 22-inch wheels, and as an option for new modifications they will offer an exclusive Opalite body color – light gray-green with a slight copper tint. The interior will be trimmed according to the general scheme: the main Beluga black color can be chosen either on its own or in combination with Brunel blue, Cricketball red, Linen and Orange.

The climate system control knobs will receive the number 12, an engraving with the sequence of the W12 engine cylinders will appear on the front panel on the passenger side, and will complement the finish of the door sills with illuminated special version logos.

The company promises that cast from aluminum taken from a full-size W12 cylinder block, the miniature engine exactly replicates the real power unit and will be a great decoration for a desktop, cabinet or shelf in the office or at home.
