Bentley is going to build 7 special edition cars inspired by Breitling's flying team

We’ve all pretended to be a fighter pilot while driving at least once.

Bentley is making that dream a little more realistic, for the lucky seven who can afford it.

Unfortunately, Bentley isn’t building a personal jet. But, the luxury carmaker is partnering with the Breitling Jet Team to build seven, unique and individually numbered versions of its Continental GT Speed.

Each one will mimic the look and feel of a fighter jet, all while still having four wheels.

Each of the 7 cars corresponds to a jet from the Breitling Jet Team. Here, they mimic a formation practiced by the world famous acrobatic flying team.

The cars may not reach 565 miles per hour like their Czech jet counterparts, they're still plenty impressive.

A standard Bentley Continental GT Speed features a V12 engine capable of 626 horsepower. The special edition cars will have the same powerful engine.

Yellow interior stitching is meant to mimic the cockpit of a Breitling Jet Team aircraft, and the headrests carry the number of the corresponding plane.

From this angle, the car looks less like a speedy jet and more like a comfortable ride, but that doesn't deter us at all.

In case a buyer forgets how rare their special edition Bentley is, the foot plate can remind them.

This isn't Bentley's first cooperative project with Breitling. This Bentley-branded Breitling watch was crafted in 2011.

Each Continental GT Speed special edition is meant to be fully customisable by the buyer, to make it one-of-a-kind, instead of one-out-of-7.

Standard GT Speed's start at $234,000, but you can expect this one to be substantially more expensive.
