The world of grand touring has changed. Enter the new Continental GT.
With its sleek lines carving a sharp path through the air, this phenomenal car heralds a new era of unrivaled power, exquisite craftsmanship and cutting-edge automotive technology.
Bentley’s design team has completely reimagined the finest car in its class. Taking our hallmarks of power and refinement and pushing them further still, the new Continental GT redefines what a grand tourer can be. And inside the cabin, it looks and feels like a wholly new level of luxury.
In creating this Bentley Continental coupe, the designers and engineers have delivered everything you expect from Bentley – in a car that can transport four adults comfortably, with enough space for plenty of luggage. Designed and built at the Bentley factory in England, this is a car unlike any other. Consider it the definitive grand tourer.
Whatever your destination, the new Continental GT will take you there in unprecedented style.
The new Bentley Continental GT fuses classic grand tourer proportions with a completely new chassis and electrical architecture – one that has enabled the design team to create a car that is impressively long, low, wide and sleek. The result is a truly beautiful, agile grand tourer with unrivaled road presence.
Steel, aluminum and composite materials take their place alongside finely crafted woods and leather in a stunning example of automotive design – one that can be enhanced with a wealth of options.
The sharp, crisp feature lines of the new Continental GT show the influence of the original Bentley R-Type Continental. The muscular haunch line exudes a sense of refined power, while the power line now emerges from between the headlamps, tracing a path down the side of the car.
The new Continental GT delivers phenomenal power and exhilarating, agile handling. Built and calibrated to offer the ultimate grand touring experience, it has four full-size seats and a range of driving technology to make every journey a joy.
A new range of systems operate throughout the car to ensure you can drive it with confidence, at all times. Active All-Wheel Drive ensures that, while the power is directed to the rear axle only during normal driving, any wheel slip results in the instantaneous engagement of the front wheels, providing additional grip, the moment it is required.
Created for agile, exhilarating driving, the new Continental GT is built on an innovative chassis and electrical architecture, featuring a completely new 6.0 litre W12 engine and an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, for smooth, fast and efficient gear changes.
As a result, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds) and deliver a phenomenal top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h).
Inside the new Continental GT, Bentley’s design team has taken automotive craftsmanship to an exquisite new level.
Like that of every Bentley, the shape of the fascia is inspired by the wings of the Bentley badge. It sweeps up from an elegant centre console and reaches out towards the doors, where the surface continues, surrounding the occupants in a seemingly unending ring of handcrafted leather and wood.
To showcase Bentley’s unmatched attention to detail, the designers have selected a striking range of hides and interior colour splits. Hand-cut and hand-stitched in grade-A leather hides, the standard, 12-way adjustable front seats feature two memory settings each, while the optional 20-way seat adds greater adjustment. For the ultimate in driving luxury, the optional Comfort Seat specification adds electrically adjustable headrests and bolsters, alongside ventilation and multiple massage modes.
