In June, Bentley hopes to set a new production car record with the Bentley Continental GT at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

2019 Bentley Continental GT

Bentley hopes that the V12-powered Continental GT will come out ahead on the 12.42-mile, 156-corner course in Colorado Springs. Besides the 626 horsepower engine, Bentley has also tapped two-time champion, Rhys Millen to pilot the Continental GT on the course.

Last year Rhys Millen set a new SUV record in the Bentley Bentayga at Pikes Peak.

“When I learned of Bentley’s plans to compete at Pikes Peak for a second time, the decision to work together again was an easy one,” Millen stated. “The Continental GT and its W12 provide us with the perfect platform to begin chasing a new record, and I am looking forward to once again being part of the Bentley Motorsport team that will prepare the car over the coming months.”
