Ferocity and splendour work together in perfect harmony in the form of the new Bentley Continental GT. The 4.0-litre, twin turbo charged V8 engine propels the sumptuous frame and refined interior to 60mph in just 4.3 seconds from a standing start, and continues to climb all the way to a top speed of 192mph.
Brimming with power, this incredible engine generates 521bhp and 680Nm of torque at 1,700rpm – yet, with variable displacement included, the eight cylinders self-regulate to minimise fuel consumption and reduce power wastage – meaning an uninterrupted 530 miles between fuel stops.
Every Bentley Continental GT is a bespoke creation – no two shall ever be the same. Inside the Continental GT you'll find an ergonomically refined cockpit made exquisite with leather upholstery in a choice of 13 different colours, plus six additional veneers. Hints of carbon fibre and aluminium provide just the right note of racing refinement, whilst lambswool rugs and hand-stitched panels reflect the serenity which could only be found in a Bentley.
A Grand Tourer for the present day, the new Bentley Continental GT is brought to life by its unparalleled array of gadgetry. A stark contrast to its classical upholstery and veneer trim, the centrepiece of the GT's interior is a touchscreen infotainment system in the form of an eight-inch screen, delivering everything from sat nav to voice-activated telephone and media entertainment.
Naim speakers specially created for Bentley bathe the interior in sensational acoustics, whilst dual-zone automatic climate control and 14-way adjustable front seats contribute towards the creation of a perfect driving environment
A great car stays great, even in the event of an accident. The new Bentley Continental GT cuts no corners when it comes to providing revolutionary safety. Carbon ceramic brakes can be found in statement red behind the open-spoke alloy wheels, though far from acting purely as decoration, these sturdy dampers deliver the strongest stopping power at any speed.
Teamed with the all-wheel drive technology, anti-lock brakes and stability control, the Bentley Continental GT is able to retain traction at any speed. Should the vehicle take a knock, frontal, side impact and knee-height airbags burst into life to shelter the delicate cargo in the interior.
