Ever since the Bentley Continental GT was first introduced in 2003 it has been one of the most popular sports GT cars on the market. Partly due to the prestigious nameplate, but also because you could take it on long trips and still get out at the end with your spine in one piece. It had a blend of performance and luxury which appealed to those with the money to buy one.

Now the new model has arrived, and it's one of the most comprehensively upgraded versions yet. There's new bodywork, new engine options, and new gadgets for the interior.


Styling
The styling of the 2011 Bentley continental GT has been thoroughly revised. It's still instantly recognizable, but now it has a more sleek, contemporary appearance. There's new sheetmetal all around - especially noticeable at the front, new headlights with LED daytime-running lights, and a new grille.

The classic Bentley matrix radiator grille is more upright on the new Continental GT, while the new headlamp design, in traditional four-lamp format, has intricate jewel-like detailing including striking, LED daylight-running lights.

At the rear of the 2011 Bentley Continental GT, the designers have integrated signature 'floating' LED lights which extend around the edges of the bodywork. The track is wider by 41mm at the front and 48mm at the rear than the previous model.


Drivetrain
The 2011 Bentley Continental is powered by a twin turbocharged 6.0 litre W12 engine which produces 567 horsepower and 700Nm (516 ft-lbs) of torque. However later in 2011 (for the 2012 Continental GT) a high-efficiency 4.0 litre V8 engine will also be offered.

The new 4.0-litre V8 engine will achieve a 40 percent improvement in CO2 emissions - however it won't be some sort of athsmatic, puny unit. The new V8 is being designed specifically by Bentley’s engineers to deliver all the oompf Bentley buyers will be expecting.

The W12 engine option will hussle the 2011 Bentley Continental GT to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, and haul it up to a top speed of 198 mph.

Power is directed to all four wheels though an upgraded six-speed Quickshift transmission, which can execute shifts in just 200 milliseconds.


Interior and Entertainment
The 2011 Bentley Continental GT features an advanced new touchscreen system with rich map imagery and a 30GB on board hard drive.

The 8-inch screen displays the car’s audio system, telephone, ride and comfort settings and the very latest navigation system, which uses both an in-car hard-disc drive and a DVD player to access route data. It also employs dynamic navigation to guide you around areas of heavy traffic, finds destinations using geo-tagged photos from an SD memory card and is Google Maps-compatible (market specific).

The Continental GT's new infotainment system also provides the ultimate in in-car audio entertainment. An eight-speaker sound system is offered as standard employing the latest Balanced Mode Radiator technology. These unique compact, flat-panel speakers provide exceptional clarity with a very wide frequency range.
