Bentley Continental GT

The Bentley Continental GT is one of the most prestigious cars in the world and one that is coveted by all walks of life. This gorgeous car has a w12, 6.0 litre engine (also comes in a v8) with 626bhp and can do 0-60mph in 4 seconds flat with a combined 15mpg. This car is has a luxurious hand crafted interior with a beautiful centre console, lush leather seats and everything is made to feel expensive. Examples of the exquisite opulence include soft-touch leather hides, an extensive range of wood veneers depending on the buyer’s personal taste, cool-touch metals and deep-pile carpets – all of which is expected in a luxury vehicle of this caliber. Guys this is a great car and one that footballers all the way to billionaire business men love and admire and so do we.

The design is simply Bentley. The front of the car with its 4 circular headlamps and big overpowering bonnet with its silver crossed grille make this car look very regal. The side of the car as you can see above has many sharp definitions making this car look very attractive. They are all there to make this car not only attractive but quicker. The rear is very elegant and simple. Two squarish break lights sit either side of a defined boot.

“Creating a new GT coupé allowed our design team to combine inspiration from past iconic Continental models with the most advanced technologies.

The familiar haunch line – a crisp modern echo of the original 1950s R-Type Continental – has sharp, modern radii to create distinct surfaces giving a wide, confident and sporting feel.

These sharp, contemporary lines are only achievable thanks to Bentley’s state-of-the-art facilities and its life-long commitment to producing coach-built cars featuring exquisite details.”

The interior designers have skilfully evolved the Continental GT’s cabin to produce a stylish yet cocooning space. Incredible attention to detail has gone into making the interior as quiet and refined as possible.

The new steering wheel introduces new knurled paddle-shift gear selectors and a new wheel shape to give an even more assured grip. Behind it, the instrument panel and dashboard subtly echo the flying wings of the Bentley motif. Fashioned from the highest quality soft-touch leathers and striking analogue dials that, at night, flood with ‘blood orange’ illumination. The dynamic cockpit area rises from the centre console in the form of dramatically surfaced ’wings’.

The GT’s distinctive new Mulliner GT Design seats now have the option to be crafted from semi-aniline hides for superior comfort. With front-seat ventilation as well as a state-of-the-art massage system.

Unlike standard two-wheel-drive cars, the Continental GT benefits from one of the world’s most advanced all-wheel-drive systems, ensuring that all the power the 12-cylinder engine generates is utilised. Its ability to accelerate under a wave of torque at any speed, in all weather conditions is unparalleled.

All-wheel drive is not simply about delivering superb traction for higher performance, it also ensures greater safety in all weather conditions. The advanced system can instantaneously adjust the power split between the front and rear wheels depending on the available grip. In addition, the uprated Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system operates alongside the all-wheel drive system to deliver superb reassurance whatever your driving style.
