Bentley Continental GT 1:8 Scale Model Costs $9,200, Takes 300 Hours To Build

Bentley has launched the official Continental GT scale models, which replicate the looks of the real cars in great detail, especially in the biggest and most expensive version.

Measuring 30.1 in (78 cm) long, 15.7 in (40 cm) wide and 9.6 in (24.4 cm) tall, the 1:8 scale model costs £6,995 (equal to $9,197) at the company’s UK retailers and online shop. Taking about 300 hours to build and utilizing more than 1,000 parts, this made-to-order version, with doors and boot that open and close, is developed under the close watch of the Bentley Design Studio.

Customers can choose from a wide range of exclusive exterior and interior options, including finishes for the lower grille, brake calipers, wheels, seat quilting and fluting, veneers, carpets and so on, in left- or right-hand drive. They can also spec it to mirror the looks of some of the most iconic Continental GTs, like the Supersports Convertible that broke the ice speed record in 2011, the Number 9 Edition made by Mulliner or their very own ride, as everything is precision-matched to the authentic paints, leathers, woods etc.

However, you don’t have to pay a fortune to enjoy an original Continental GT scale model, as a 1:43 option is also available. It costs £85 ($112), comes in Khamun exterior over a Beluga interior, or Storm Grey and Brunel and Linen, and is equipped with the Blackline Specification in the former, which replaces the chrome exterior parts with black trim.

Priced at £12 ($16), the most affordable Continental GT toy is the 1:64 model. It’s offered in Ice, Orange Flame and Sequin Blue paint finishes and is made using die-cast metal.
