It's been barely eight years since Bentley entered the Chinese market, and they haven't looked back. Since arriving on the scene in 2002, Bentley's sales have grown ten-fold, to the point that today China is the company's third largest market. So it's little wonder that the crew from Crewe is launching a pair of special editions specifically for the world's largest populace.

Both special editions are based on the Continental line-up. The first, as if the model's name weren't long enough already, is the Continental Flying Spur Speed China. For the Chinese market, Bentley has actually toned down what it calls "the world's fastest luxury four-door saloon" with a softer suspension and a quieter exhaust note.

The second, called the Design Series China, starts with the Continental GT coupe and centers its uniqueness around the interior, with three-tone leather trim and vibrant accents throughout. Bentley's even added two new colors to the palette – Orange Flame and Magenta Metallic – with the launch of the Chinese special.

The pair will be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show, which opens its doors on Friday. Details on both are available in the press release after the jump.

      It's a smart move to get a softer suspension and a quieter exhaust note, potential Chinese Bentley buyers are most likely looking for comfort than driving dynamics, and the quieter exhaust allows the owner to maintain a relatively low profile.

      These will be showcased next to the knock off Bentleys that the Chinese have.
