New Continental GT
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.
From the company’s earliest days, our cars set new standards in automotive design and engineering. They were icons of motoring. These cars took the Grand Touring rulebook and rewrote it. The beautiful R-Type Continental in the 1950s and the Continental GT at the start of the 21st century. A revolution in Grand Touring. The Continental GT represents a new chapter in the Continental story.
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.
The story of Bentley begins with an engine. But not a car engine. The Sopwith Camel’s BR1 rotary-radial engine, considered the finest fighter aircraft engine of World War I, was designed by a young engineer called W.O. Bentley. Its success provided W.O. with the funds to found a car company in 1919. Within the decade, Bentley had become the dominant force in endurance racing, with five Le Mans victories and countless other accolades to its name.
To complement its modern interior, the Continental GT boasts touchscreen technology. The system – designed specifically by Bentley – uses a combination of touchscreen controls and classic knurled rotary switches to offer instant usability and crystal-clear feedback.
