Bentley reveals new carbon fibre pack for Continental GT and Bentayga

New aerodynamic package adds some sporty style and can be retrofitted on either vehicle

Bentley has added a new carbon fibre styling package to both the Continental GT and Bentayga’s extensive lists of customisation options. The upgrade will cost roughly £8,500 on the coupe and £17,000 on the SUV, raising the two cars’ base-prices to around £160,000 and £140,000 respectively.

The styling package was designed by the engineering team responsible for the aero components on the special edition Pikes Peak Continental GT, and includes a deeper carbon fibre splitter, wider carbon fibre side skirts and a larger carbon fibre diffuser to the standard-issue Continental GT and Bentayga.

Both cars get new rear spoilers, with the coupe receiving a low-level lip for the boot-lid and the SUV gaining an enormous bi-plane wing for its tailgate. There’s a smattering of newly minted metallic badging, too, and buyers can choose to have both cars’ front air blades, wing vents and mirror caps in the same carbon fibre finish.

Bentley says its development programme for the aerodynamic upgrades has been rigorous, with each vehicle being subject to 100,000km (around 62,000 miles) of testing. This is to make sure the spitter won’t be ripped away from the bumper if the car strikes a kerb, or that the side skirts won’t rattle their way loose over rough roads.

Each car has also been tested in computer simulations, in a wind tunnel and on the track to ensure the upgrades don’t have a negative impact on either car’s handling and stability.

The styling package is available to order now on any new Continental GT or Bentayga, with deliveries expected shortly after the government travel restrictions have lifted. However, if you’re lucky enough to own either vehicle, Bentley will also retrofit the package to your car at any of its UK retailers.
