Bentley Le Mans editions - celebrating the Bentley Boys

A team of drivers won Le Mans for Bentley in 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930 - and more recently in 2003. Those drivers became known as the Bentley Boys.

Bentley are honouring their success with a series of limited edition cars - six each of the Continental and Mulsanne. Each of the Bentley Boys is named for a special edition version of each car - including the most recent, Guy Smith.

For example, John Duff's specification has Moonbeam paintwork, Linen/Beluga interior, Piano Black/Bright Aluminum Fascia veneer and a black roof.

The Le Mans special edition Bentleys get all sorts of exclusive features, and numbered badges. They will be limited to 48 models.

It's all rather charming really.

Nothing so vulgar as a price has been released yet. Take a look at the mini-site here.

We look forward to Audi's Le Mans special edition Q3 featuring Allan McNish tartan.
