Bentley Continental GT V8 ‘Monster by Mulliner’ edition announced

January 7, 2016

A unique boombox-on-wheels Bentley has been revealed at the CES event in Las Vegas, called the Bentley Continental GT Monster by Mulliner.

The special edition model was developed by Bentley’s in-house Mulliner Division, usually responsible for customisation options, as well as high-end audio company Monster. The pair used a Continental GT V8 S as the foundation.

Rather typically, Bentley says the edition was designed to appeal to young professionals and prominent sports and music figures. It promises “incredible audio performance”.

Inside has been completely decked out in Monster audio, with 16 speakers finding their way into various nooks and crannies, all of which have been tuned by Monster CEO Noel Lee. It delivers a whopping 3400 Watts of Pure Monster Sound.

Using the Monster logo, Mulliner stepped in to provide a unique 3D laser-etched fascia panel exclusively for the vehicle, paired with piano black trimmings. There’s also special Monster by Mulliner headrests, bespoke sill plates with Monster’s company motto, and the usual luxury atmosphere of the Continental GT.

To make sure the exterior keeps up with the quality and presence of the interior, Bentley has painted the panels in a stunning Onyx colour scheme with Hotspur highlights. Red brake calipers provide a sinister race appeal, hiding behind gloss black polished alloy wheels.

Bentley will be producing a very limited number of these Monster editions for sale on the public market. Prices and build numbers haven’t been mentioned. As a bonus, buyers get a set of Monster 24K gold wireless headphones.
