Mario Balotelli's Bentley Continental GT

Mario Balotelli's Bentley Continental GT now has a military-style camouflage finish.

Mario Balotelli's Bentley Continental GT now has a military-style camouflage finish. This could, perhaps, help the Manchester City striker outsmart his opponents by moving unseen around the football pitch. The camouflage has been crated courtesy of a removable, vinyl, skin that covers the entire body. This has a matt green background complemented by apparently random sections of brown, black, and red. As with military gear, these break- up the lines making the car - which is nearly five metres long and two wide – incredibly hard to see. But this is not the only Bentley Continental GT with an unusual finish. As such, customisation firm Dartz Motorz is offering motorists a real, or fake, snakeskin finish to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Snake. That makes Balotelli's look 'pleasingly restrained'.

Irrespective of its finish the Bentley Continental GT is a magnificent machine. The most powerful Speed 6.0-litre W12 trim produces 625PS, after all, and hits 62mph in only 4.2 seconds. Top speed is 205mph. That is remarkable for a heavy car that averages 19.5mpg. This lifestyle statement also has rock-solid handling, a sky-high image, and some of the best curves in motoring. It looks particularly striking from the side and rear. Standard toys include the: touch-screen sat-nav, eight-speed automatic transmission, thirty gigabyte hard- drive, and the tremendous quality stereo system. This footballer's delight also has a 358- litre boot which is larger than a Ford Focus Hatchback's. All from £151,100 - plus vinyl.
