In 2003, under the management of Volkswagen AG, Bentley really turned a corner when they revived an old model name with the introduction of the Continental GT. Powered by a massive six-litre W12 motor, replete with a pair of turbochargers, this Bentley for the new millennium boasted 412kW (that’s 552 imperial horses) and a top speed just a tad under the magical 200mph mark. Woolf Barnato, Sir Tim Birkin and the rest of the Bentley Boys would’ve loved this luxurious beast. Using the original Continental GT as a base, Bentley would subsequently essay a whole range of models, with one of the latest being the 2014-introduced V8 S.
If you try a Google image search on the V8 S, you’ll discover a whole pile of shots depicting a Monaco Yellow example — the UK press car.
Thanks to the good guys at Toymod, the NZ Corgi distributor, we have one example of the UK Press Car Bentley to give away to a lucky reader — just answer the following question:
Q: What was the registration number of the Monaco Yellow Continental V8 S UK press car?
