Bentley is using its gorgeous new Continental GT as the canvas for its tribute to the 1930s "Blower Bentleys."
The original Blower Bentleys used a supercharger (hence the name) bolted to the 4-and-a-half liter Bentley engine to dramatically increase its power output.
While the new version lacks a supercharger, its W12 engine still enjoys the benefits of forced-induction thanks to its turbochargers.
The prominent "9" on the grille is meant as a tribute to Sir Tim Birkin's No. 9 Bentley race car that he took to Le Mans.
The interior of the Number 9 edition gets gold plated organ pulls, a special Jaeger dash clock and a piece of Sir Birkin's Bentley encased in resin and affixed to the dash.
The Number 9 edition also gets special hide options for the interior.
Only 100 Number 9 editions will be built in honor of Bentley's centennial.
