New Bentley Continental GT scale model revealed with intricate details
Want a new Bentley Continental GT but the size of the car – or the price – proves to be a stumbling block? Well, Bentley has launched a range of perfectly detailed scale models to make the dream of Bentley ownership more achievable for the masses.
Available in scale 1:64, 1:43 or more extravagant 1: 8 scale models, the new replicas are developed under the close supervision of the Bentley Design Studio to ensure absolute precision.
The larger 1: 8 scale model, measuring 78cm long and costing Â£ 6,995, is a bespoke part that takes over 300 hours to assemble and includes 1,000 individual parts. It is made of resin and rests on a varnished base.
Like the real one, it comes with a full list of options, including a choice of exterior paint colors, rims and alloys, lower grille, brake calipers, license plate, stance driver left or right, interior color distribution, primary skin color, secondary leather color, seat cushioning, seat grooves, veneers and carpets. You can even specify the Blackline specification of the real car.
Another stunning replica of the grand tourer par excellence is the Continental GT in a scale of 1:43. The superformed sculptural lines of the iconic coupe are reflected in the miniature version, crafted from the highest quality resin.
The display box and pedestal that houses this model feature the iconic Bentley fender logo. Available in a choice of Khamun exterior paint with Blackline specification and a Beluga interior, or Storm Gray exterior paint with Brunel and Linen Interior – two bold yet classic combinations, selected by some of Bentley’s most discerning customers for the full-size car.
The resplendent golden tone of the Khamun model will pique the curiosity of young aspiring Bentley drivers, who will be dazzled by the brand’s heritage and the stories of its automotive heroes of the past 100 years. This model will be a treasured piece for the home, displayed above the reach of curious children, allowing them to gaze in wonder and wonder, and inspiring thoughts on the great adventures to come.
The 1:43 model, priced at Â£ 85, measures 11.2cm in length, 5.2cm in width and 3.3cm in height and comes in a display box atop a plinth. It is available in Khamun exterior paint with Blackline specification and Beluga interior, or Storm Gray exterior paint with Brunel and Linen interior.
Finally, the 1:64 scale model Â£ 12 is created from die-cast metal with soft rubber tires and is available in a choice of colors – Ice, Orange Flame and Sequin Blue. It is 3.1cm wide and 7.7cm deep.
