Bentley has tapped into its bespoke coachbuilding Mulliner division for a new Continental GT V8 exclusive to Japan.

Dubbed the Equinox Edition, the special Continental GT takes on a monochrome design, pairing a pristine “Glacier White” or “Deep Onyx Black” exterior with a luxurious interior balanced by Piano Moonbeam over Grand Black veneers. Complementing its elegance are other styling changes, including a front splitter, rear diffuser, trunk lip spoiler and side sills all constructed out of high-gloss carbon fiber, and a set of 22-inch wheels finished in metallic tungsten.

As for power, the Equinox Edition comes with the automaker’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that can push out 542 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, translating to a 0-60 mph time of just 3.9 seconds and an impressive top speed of 198 mph. When raw speed isn’t needed, you’ll also be able to de-activate four of the eight cylinders so you can experience a more efficient and sustainable drive.
