If you’ve been thinking about a new Bentley but are worried that you might have to go to an aftermarket supplier to add carbon-fiber (or, carbon-fibre, as those highfalutin folks at the British ultra-luxury brand call it) accents, worry no more — at least if you’re considering a Continental GT (coupe or convertible) or Bentayga. Bentley’s latest Styling Specification — Etonian for “option package,” we assume — will place carbon fiber of only the finest parentage and schooling to your high-powered high-luxury car.

For the Conti, the accents include a front splitter, rear spoiler, rear diffuser and side skirts. It’s much the same on the Bentayga, though the spoiler is at the top of the liftgate and there are also carbon-fiber “rear screen strakes” (essentially angled buttresses extending down from the spoiler at the edges of the rear windscreen). The side skirts feature three-dimensional Bentley badges, as well, for an added touch of opulence.

The carbon-fiber parts were developed by the in-house team responsible for the last-generation Continental GT’s carbon-fiber accents, including on various racing versions. The weave pattern is mirror-matched along the vehicle’s centerline, so have no fear that your purchase of hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of machinery might not match down to the smallest detail.

The carbon-fiber accents are available now on the Continental GT, Continental GT convertible and Bentayga, and Bentley said it plans to add a similar package to the Flying Spur in the near future.
