Continental GT

59

The luxury of spontaneity – the freedom to take to the open road on your own terms. No other car on the road today exemplifies the spirit of life’s grand tour more than the Bentley Continental GT.

The new model sports an even more powerful W12 twin turbo engine, up to 590 PS from 575 PS, and an innovative variable displacement system that creates more power, but with lower emissions than ever before.

Alongside this increased performance is a suite of refinements to create the most luxurious travelling experience. They include a new, more sculpted and sporty steering wheel allowing the driver’s hands to fit, and connect, more closely with the car. There’s an optional semi-aniline hide that forms the enhanced straight-flute seating for an even more luxurious travelling experience. Supercar speed meets handcrafted luxury.

With the Continental GT, we weren’t prepared to make that compromise. It’s the little things that count.

Its ability to accelerate under a wave of torque at any speed, in all weather conditions is unparalleled.
