2015 Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series Makes High-Flying Debut


CREWE, England — The 2015 Bentley Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series, an exclusive run of seven cars inspired by Breitling jets, debuted on Tuesday.

The series will appear at the Boeing Seafair Airshow in Seattle on July 31, where the Breitling Jet Team is performing. Pricing has not been announced.

"The key for each car will be handed over to its owner by the corresponding plane's pilot, but not until they have experienced a flight in the jet that inspired their car," Bentley said in a statement.

The exclusive cars are designed to show luxury shoppers the customization possibilities that are available courtesy of Bentley's Mulliner division.

The jet-inspired Continental GT Speeds mirror the look of the Breitling jets with a Hallmark and Onyx exterior paint treatment. The cabin gets seats with Breitling Yellow accents.

Each car is individually numbered and corresponds to one of the seven Breitling jets.

The Breitling Jet Team is the world's largest professional civilian flight team performing in jets. It is backed by the Swiss watch company of the same name.

Of course, automobiles and aircraft have been a natural fit.

Saab had a storied aviation history, Honda makes jets and Rolls-Royce makes jet engines. Tesla CEO Elon Musk not only leads automaker Tesla Motors, but also is at the helm of SpaceX, a manufacturer of advanced rockets and spacecraft.

Edmunds says: Bentley soars with this special series.
