There are no design changes on the Space Edition. However, bespoke customization can be seen all over the car. The body colour is a greenish-grey cypress shade that echoes the shade of the moon’s surface. It was also used on the first-gen Continental GT back in 2003. The colour scheme looks good when the sun is up, but it is the best when a bright light reflects off the surface at the night. You can observe orange accents on the lower part of the body that is inspired by the comet’s dust trails.
