To celebrate the 90th anniversary of Le Mans 24 Hours, France’s historic sports car endurance race, Bentley is launching six new Le Mans Limited Edition models.
Based on flagships Continental and Mulsanne, each car is named for a Bentley driver who was victorious at Le Mans 24 Hours. Models include the John Duff, Dudley Benjafield, Woolf Barnato, Tim Birkin, Glen Kidston and Guy Smith.
The limited edition vehicles will have specific interior veneers and exterior colors, as well as Le Mans Edition clock faces, headrest badges, tread plates and wheels.
The 48 models will be available exclusively in North America. Those based on the Continental GT will be available in mid-2013, and the Mulsanne Le Mans Edition cars will be available in the beginning of the third quarter of 2013.
