Bentley announced a new range of limited edition models celebrating the 90th anniversary of the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race and Bentley’s participation in the inaugural event, and the 10th anniversary of Bentley’s victory in 2003.

Couldn’t get more exclusive than that.

They also come with unique Le Mans Edition numbered badge, Le Mans Edition clock face, embroidered Le Mans badge to each headrest, tread plates with the limited edition name, unique Le Mans Edition wheels and specific interior veneers and exterior colours.

The first edition is named after original Bentley Boy, John Duff. Exclusive features include Moonbeam exterior color, two-tone Linen and Beluga interior with contrasting stitching, and Piano Black and Bright Aluminium venners.
