Mulliner, Bentley Motors’ bespoke division, has teamed up with Princess Yachts to create a marine-themed Continental GT Convertible.

The Galene Edition gets Glacier White paint with a Sequin Blue section running along the bottom of the body from just behind the front wheels to the rear, which Bentley says “captures the iridescent sparkle of crystal clear waters”.

Underneath, there sits a 4.0-litre V8 engine making 500bhp, though cruising with the roof up you’d struggle to hear it, thanks to a four-layered retractable hood.

The soft-top is painted dark blue to continue the aquatic theme, while the 21-inch alloy wheels are the company’s ‘propeller’ design.

Bentley says the luxurious interior was designed to pay homage to the hand-crafted components that are common in the world of luxury yachts. There are a variety of top-end materials used, including linen and Portland hide leather for the seats and Brunel Alcantara for the stowage case.

There’s even the option for buyers to have a hand-painted illustration of a super-yacht inside the car by Spanish artist Jaume Vilardell.

Bentley has created a new material called Pinstripe Walnut specifically for the Galene Edition. The wood finish is used in the centre stack and console, illuminated treadplates and on the boot floor.

There will be just 30 examples of the Bentley Continental GT Convertible Galene Edition by Mulliner built worldwide.
