Bentley have unveiled a stunning rainbow version of their Continental GT V8 Convertible that will feature as part of an online Pride event.
The Crewe-based luxury automotive firm have partnered with Cheshire East Council for the North West’s first virtual Pride event on Saturday 25th July.
They say that the partnership will celebrate three key themes for Bentley: pride in the diversity of its colleagues at its home and around the world, hope and gratitude as the business begins to emerge from the Covid-19 crisis and ongoing support for the local community.

“We embraced the opportunity to create our first rainbow car, because rainbows are recognised as an icon for the LGBTQ+ community and Pride events which celebrate individuality and take place around the world during June and July,” said Dr. Astrid Fontaine, Bentley’s Member of the Board for People, Digitalisation and IT.
SORRY, IT’S NOT FOR SALE.
Bentley describe the colours used as:
- Dragon Red – an arresting and distinguished metallic, evoking a sense of speed and presence. It displays a fiery character befitting the extrovert eye-catching intensity of this sporting red.
- Orange Flame (metallic) – makes the boldest of statements. Mixed with ‘Mica’ pigment and aluminium, it is painted in a single layer, topped with a clear coat, cured and then finished with a ‘mirror finish’ polish.
- Yellow Flame – a unique colour created for the Mulliner coach-built Bacalar limited edition model. This specially developed paint reflects a striking transition of colour that intensifies the drama of form and contours.
- Apple Green (metallic) – brings a fresh, modern hue to the green spectrum and provides a striking pop of confident colour.
- Sequin Blue (metallic) – developed from a special request from a customer to match the colour of a sequin on her favourite dress, this is a rich metallic blue with a deep shadow and unrivalled ability to draw attention to the exterior shape and form of all models.
- Azure Purple (metallic) – a dark, rich shade with blue undertones created when Bentley was asked to match the unmistakable colour of the beautiful African Violet flower.
