To celebrate its 100th anniversary, Bentley chose to honor one of the marque’s most illustrious chapters, Sir Henry Ralph Stanley “Tim” Birkin and his storied Number 9, the imposing green “Blower Bentley” that raced into legend at the 1930 24 Hours of Le Mans and has since become an icon of prewar auto racing. Available only in Viridian Green or Beluga Black, each Continental GT Number 9 Edition wears tailored “9” badging with a corresponding front grill graphic, while color-matched 22-inch wheels, carbon-fiber body kit, and Bentley’s Black Line Specification complete the presentation. Inside, the center console wears an engine-turned finish while treasured British manufacturer Jaegar designed a timepiece echoing the gauges found in early Bentleys.

Created to be an immediate collector piece, each car wears a wood insert artefact directly from the seat of Birkin’s Number 9 Le Mans car, which was harvested during a restoration. It is set in resin, backlit, and placed in the center of the dash. Numerous Centenary Gold trim pieces, special “1 of 100” doorsill plates, and 18-karat gold-plated organ stops continue the homage to Sir Birkin and his storied Bentley.

Finished in Veridian over Cumbrian Green leather, one of these coveted Number 9s is offered here. Sold new via Bentley of Greenwich, Connecticut, this example is further optioned with a Bang and Olufsen audio system, contrast stitching, front seat comfort specification, and welcome lighting, which illuminates the ground with a Bentley logo. All told, the car features more than $80,000 in enhancements over a standard Continental GT. A clear protective paint coating has been applied to the entirety of the car, while a set of deep pile floormats, a battery charger, and owner’s manuals accompany the sale.

Combining spirited performance with handcrafted luxury, the Bentley Continental GT has always occupied a unique place in the automotive world with its blend of supercar capabilities and limousine comfort. This unique, limited edition of the quintessential contemporary Bentley sports coupe carries special significance and beautiful detailing beyond the already remarkable standard Continental GT, making it highly sought-after and immensely desirable to collectors and marque enthusiasts.
