Enjoy the best of British motoring wherever you go with the new Bentley Continental GT. This sublime grand tourer is now about to enter its exciting third generation.
The new Continental GT boasts timeless, elegant styling that effortlessly manages to combine retro glamour with a thoroughly modern appearance. The car’s bold front fascia is adorned with a large rectangular chrome-mesh radiator grille, above which is positioned the iconic Bentley badge, while below are situated the vehicle’s expansive air intakes. The rear of the car is just as impressive with, for instance, a pair of stainless steel twin exhausts, complete with highly-polished tailpipes. The car rides on lightweight tri-spoke, diamond-turned alloy wheels that certainly catch the eye and are protected with locking nuts. Two sets of circular LED headlights and LED daytime running lights are located either side of the car’s grille, each providing fully automatic high-to-low beam intensity.
The new Continental GT possesses an opulent cabin that more than comfortably seats four adult occupants. Front-row travellers are provided with heated sports seats that offer 12-way electronic adjustability, four-way lumbar support and memory functionality. Each seat is upholstered in leather, with the same material also deployed on the car’s steering wheel, gearshift knob and elsewhere. Labour-saving features include a defrosting rear windshield, while speed-sensitive, rain-detecting wipers ensure that forward visibility is good too. The new Continental GT possesses a 357-litre trunk boot space, which is easily accessed thanks to an electrically operated tailgate.
This luxury automobile is powered by a 6.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which is paired with eight-speed automatic transmission. This 12-cylinder unit delivers 574bhp and 720Nm of torque. The car is capable of 0-100kph in just 3.5 seconds, making it the fastest accelerating Bentley yet. It is also able to reach a top speed of 336kph. The Continental GT’s all-wheel drive delivers an extremely stable ride, even on less-than-perfect surfaces.
An eight-inch touchscreen display enables easy control of the car’s eight-speaker sound system. This features a CD/DVD player, radio and a 15GB hard disc drive for storing some of your favourite music. Satellite navigation is included too, as is Bluetooth connectivity, delivering hands-free telephone communication and audio streaming.
Hydraulic-power-assisted steering allows the car to be handled with ease. Other driver aids include Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Hill-hold Control – and Low Tyre Pressure Warning, which alerts the driver of any significant deviation in air pressure. Passive safety features include a suite of airbags that help keep travellers in both compartments as safe as possible in the unlikely event of a collision.
