Concorso D’Eleganza: Special Edition Bentley Continental GTZ unveiled image

So if you already have the Continental GT and you want something more individual – well take a look at this piece of art.

This is the Bentley Continental GTZ – the result of a joint venture between the Italian styling house Zagato and the Crewe company.

When the car was initially introduced in 2008 at the Geneva Motor Show, the famous Italian tuning company Zagato modified the bodywork of the 600 hp twin-turbo W12 Continental GT Speed with a special two-tone body finish and at the same time providing a customized treatment of luxurious leather to the interior.

But this one presented at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is even more special. On the backside, the wheels are covered with a special panel.

How much costs this special model we don’t know exactly, but we do know that the “standard” Continental GTZ costs 1.3 million Euros (about $1.7 million).

Naturally, the GTZ goes and handles as well as the regular GT Speed – possibly a little better, since it weighs around 100kg less and the longer tail probably adds a few mph to the 200mph-plus top speed. There’s the same whispering refinement from the 6-litre, twin-turbo, quad-cam, 48-valve W12 engine, the same sublime smoothness.
