Bentley has released photos and details of two special edition Continental models that have been designed exclusively for the China market and will have their world premiere at the Beijing motorshow on the 23rd of April.
First up is the 'Continental GT Design Series China', highlighted by its unique color and trim options. The pride and joy of each design series is the three-tone interior that blends a main leather hide color with insert colors at locations such as the coupe's seat belts, floor mats, seat piping and the hand-stitched steering wheel.
This series of cars will be further distinguished by some subtle exterior and interior motifs such as an exterior wing badge, treadplate and name badge positioned on the centre console, all bearing the 'Design Series China' signature.
The Continental GT special will be accompanied by the Continental Flying Spur Speed China that boasts unique styling features and a range of engineering upgrades developed specifically for the Chinese market.
Under the skin, the suspension has been retuned for enhanced comfort while the exhaust system has been modified to produce a quieter note.
If you're wondering why Bentley chose to develop these China-only models, the answer is simple - the Chinese market is now the company's third most important market globally in terms of sales, which have grown nearly ten folds to 421 cars in 2009.
