The Bentley Continental GT sets new standards in refinement and luxury with its skilful mix of contemporary design and exquisite materials. It truly is a blend of the most desirable attributes that you would want in a sports car – classic design, supercar performance and outstanding craftsmanship with everyday usability.
The wide, low slug stance of the coupe is evident. Its assertive appearance further emphasised by curved surfaces, sharp lines and a forward thrusting front grille. The classic Bentley matrix grille is present and the headlights have been designed to incorporate a 'jewellery' effect. There are distinctive wraparound lights to the rear along with elliptical exhaust tailpipes which reinforce the Continental GT's sporting credentials.
Step inside the cabin and you will find an indulgent interior. Everything has been expertly hand crafted and stitched with precision. The dashboard and instrument panel echo the flying wings of the Bentley motif and are designed with lavish soft leathers and striking analogue dials that illuminate after dark. The seats introduce innovative materials to support the body and enhance comfort. There is also front seat ventilation and a unique massage system. Individual colour schemes and finishes are available as well as new exterior paint colours including Extreme Silver and Liquid Mercury finishes.
To compliment its stylish interior, the Continental GT houses advanced touchscreen technology. This latest system was designed exclusively for Bentley and holds the navigation component which conveniently places the car's sound system, telephone and comfort settings at the driver's fingertips. The Naim for Bentley Premium Audio System is another superior touch and the technology behind its cutting edge speakers virtually transforms the sound quality in the cabin to that of an auditorium. The list of standard specification is endless – everything and more that you would expect from one of the world's finest marques.
The Continental GT is a fast and agile sports car that's full of life. It keenly turns into corners and can reach 60 mph in an impressive 4.6 seconds. Its advanced 6.0 litre twin-turbo W12 engine with FuelFlex technology is designed to increase power, torque and fuel efficiency. Benefiting from state of the art suspension and an all-wheel-drive system, the Continental GT does not waste any of the power generated (567 bhp) from its 12-cylinder engine. The all-wheel-drive system can instantaneously adjust the power between front and rear wheels and works alongside an Electronic Stability Control system to give reassurance and grip in all weather conditions.
