paddle auto, AWD
Highlights of the Bentley Continental GT:
An all-new Bentley coupé, inspired by the finest
Grand Touring traditions but designed, engineered and built
using the most modern techniques blended with inimitable Bentley
The fastest four-seat coupé in the world with a
top speed in excess of 180mph (290km/h) and 0-62mph (100km/h)
in under five seconds.
Powered by a Bentley-designed 6-litre, twin-turbocharged,
W12 engine developing more than 500bhp. Tuned to provide not
simply massive power, but also the unmistakeable Bentley delivery
achieved only by the coincidence of high torque
at low revs.
Drive is sent to all four wheels, a first for a Bentley
- as is the paddle operated, six speed automatic gearbox. All-wheel
drive and electronic stability programme were considered essential
not only for the Continental GT's performance, but also to provide
year-round versatility in all conditions.
Styled in house at Bentley's design studios in Crewe to
incorporate all traditional Bentley design hallmarks into a
totally contemporary shape. Packaged to seat a family of four
in comfort and to provide enough luggage space for a fortnight's
Styling cues include pillarless cabin, minimal front overhang,
pronounced haunches, distinctive 'face' featuring large inner
headlamps, flush mounted rear spoiler that rises at speed.
Designed entirely in the virtual world, using the very
latest digital processes.
Chassis designed by Bentley engineers to provide responsive
handling combined with an effortlessly absorbent ride quality
consistent with Continental GT's Grand Touring role.
