The “Monster by Mulliner” Continental GT V8 S is a special super coupe aimed directly at singers and sports superstars.
Automotive aficionados are more than aware of Mulliner, the bespoke division of Bentley whose sole purpose in life is to meet the most discerning of client’s needs.
However, visitors to the 2016 CES, where this special edition is being presented — rather than at a traditional auto show — are more likely to be familiar with Monster, the premium audio brand with whom Mulliner is partnering on the model.
“Monster is proud to collaborate with Bentley on bringing the sound and look of a Monster ride to those who want something bold and different,” said company CEO Noel Lee. “With our Pure Monster Sound system, the drive will be truly incredible and brings a new level of excitement to the driving experience.”

If you’re in the market for a new motor, the updated SL will be available to order at the beginning of 2016.
