Naijauto got new updates featuring the all-new Bentley Continental GT limited-edition convertible that was created by the brand to celebrate its 100-year anniversary.

This new Bentley Number 1 Edition by the one and only Mulliner is actually done in the same styling as the old 1929 Bentley Blower Number 1 which was a legendary racing car that the brand prides in. This happened when the brand was just 10-years old. The Blower back then used a 4.5L engine that set a 137-mph average speed record in the year 1932 at Brooklands.

This new Bentley Number 1 GT is the third car among the 3 centenary Bentley editions, the first model being the Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition.

This Number 1 GT also features special touches that are only seen on the special 100 units that were built, with each of them having a direct memento from Bentley’s original 1929 Blower racing car; mementoes like a display piece that is built into the vehicle’s dashboard, which houses a small sized wheel spinner that is cast from the original piston of the 1929 Blower. The dashboard trim of this new GT is done in an “Engine-Spin” type style that is turned aluminium and the featured engine is a 6.0L W12.
