New Continental GT

The world of grand touring has changed. Enter the new Continental GT.

With its sleek lines carving a sharp path through the air, this phenomenal car heralds a new era of unrivalled power, exquisite craftsmanship and cutting-edge automotive technology.

Bentley’s design team has completely reimagined the finest car in its class. Taking our hallmarks of power and refinement and pushing them further still, the new Continental GT redefines what a grand tourer can be. And inside the cabin, it looks and feels like a wholly new level of luxury.

A stunning demonstration of Bentley’s unrivalled attention to detail, it delivers a true journey of discovery for the driver. Designed to delight every sense, this is a car to see, feel, hear and appreciate.

In creating this Bentley Continental coupe, the designers and engineers have delivered everything you expect from Bentley – in a car that can transport four adults comfortably, with enough space for plenty of luggage. Designed and built at the Bentley factory in England, this is a car unlike any other. Consider it the definitive grand tourer.

Whatever your destination, the new Continental GT will take you there in unprecedented style.

Design

Unrivalled road presence

The new Bentley Continental GT fuses classic grand tourer proportions with a completely new chassis and electrical architecture – one that has enabled the design team to create a car that is impressively long, low, wide and sleek. The result is a truly beautiful, agile grand tourer with unrivalled road presence.

Steel, aluminium and composite materials take their place alongside finely crafted woods and leather in a stunning example of automotive design – one that can be enhanced with a wealth of options.

Exterior Design

The sharp, crisp feature lines of the new Continental GT show the influence of the original Bentley R-Type Continental. The muscular haunch line exudes a sense of refined power, while the power line now emerges from between the headlamps, tracing a path down the side of the car.

The long wheelbase and short nose lend the car a sense of dynamism, even when viewed at a standstill. Beneath the bonnet, this arrangement allows the engine to be located lower, for optimum weight distribution and more agile handling.

Intricately crafted new crystal-effect LED headlamps help define a new face for the Continental, while at the rear, newly designed elliptical lamps shine from within individual polished bezels – their shape reflected in the oval tailpipes.

A wide range of custom-designed wheels can be commissioned, with large 21” designs available as standard and optional 22” forged alloy wheels for a more imposing look. The twisting 3D polished surfaces on these larger wheels reflect the light magnificently, yet they can only be achieved by hand. They are available as an option, alongside two other finishes.

With the Bentley Dynamic Ride and air suspension systems working together to ensure a refined drive, even large wheels like this can be selected with no compromise on comfort.

Interior Design

Inside the new Continental GT, Bentley’s design team has taken automotive craftsmanship to an exquisite new level.

Like that of every Bentley, the shape of the fascia is inspired by the wings of the Bentley badge. It sweeps up from an elegant centre console and reaches out towards the doors, where the surface continues, surrounding the occupants in a seemingly unending ring of handcrafted leather and wood.

In addition to a wide range of veneered surfaces, the new Continental GT can be commissioned with a choice of innovative dual veneers, which see the natural grain of handcrafted wood separated from a contrasting finish by a narrow strip of polished chrome.

In each case, a mirror-like Piano Black finish is paired with your choice of Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus, Dark Stained Madrona, Liquid Amber or Tamo Ash. For those who prefer a single veneer, there are eight choices, including Koa, our new, mid-tone, straight-grained veneer. Koa is a wood species used in its native Hawaii in the creation of handmade surfboards and guitars.

The finish selected for the lower section of the fascia continues into the centre console. As an alternative, however, the console can be commissioned with our new stunning, rippled 0.6mm aluminium finish Côtes de Genève, which is inspired by the milled internal casings of fine wristwatches. A hand-finished first for the automotive world, its textured bands literally shimmer in the light.

Decorative features such as the clock bezels and bulls-eye air vents can be commissioned with a new and intricate diamond knurling – a jewellery-inspired texture composed of myriad diamond-shaped flat surfaces. Featuring as standard on control surfaces in the new Continental GT, it is easy to grip and even easier on the eye, reflecting the light like a cut precious stone while improving the ergonomic performance of important controls.

The beautiful new piano-finish paint process is applied to each new Continental GT by the craftsmen and women at the Bentley factory in Crewe, working alongside the very latest technology in robot paint systems to provide an unrivalled level of detail. A standard range of 17 colours is available, along with an extended range of a further 13 finishes.

Performance

Innovative All New Performance

INNOVATIVE ALL NEW PERFORMANCE

Created for agile, exhilarating driving, the new Continental GT is built on an innovative chassis and electrical architecture, featuring a completely new 6.0 litre W12 engine and an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, for smooth, fast and efficient gear changes.

As a result, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds) and deliver a phenomenal top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h).

Four driving modes are accessible at the turn of a dial. Comfort optimises the chassis and drivetrain for luxurious cruising, while Sport mode retunes the engine for a more dynamic response – with the variable exhaust valve adjusting the character of the exhaust note to match. The Bentley mode provides the optimum combination of Sport and Comfort, while a Custom mode allows you to configure your own settings for future use.

EFFORTLESSLY EFFICIENT

In the engine itself, high-pressure direct injection has been employed alongside port injection, allowing the engine to switch seamlessly between the two, depending on which is most efficient in any given situation. Along with a raft of fuel innovations, it ensures that emission levels are among the best in its class, while also maximising range.

Technology

Most Advanced Bentley Ever

The Most Advanced Bentley Ever

The new Continental GT features innovations throughout the drivetrain, making it the most advanced Bentley model ever built.

Dual clutch transmission provides impressively quick gearshifts and smooth acceleration to enhance the car’s dynamic character.

The 48V Active Roll Control system senses road conditions and changes the car’s movement instantaneously to optimise handling and ensure a smooth ride. And electric steering improves feedback to the driver so that it always feels right for the driving conditions.

Variable Displacement Technology

Beneath the bonnet, variable displacement technology allows one entire bank of cylinders to disengage at gentle throttle openings, reducing the number in operation to six and optimising fuel consumption accordingly. The moment the throttle opens wider, the engine reverts to the power of all 12 cylinders.

Many of the polished chrome details inside the car can be commissioned with Bentley’s new diamond knurling – an eye-catching finish that makes controls easier to grip, while bouncing light beautifully around the car.

They are Magnolia, Camel, Linen, Portland, Saddle, Brunel, Cumbrian Green, Burnt Oak, Damson, Cricket Ball, Hotspur, Newmarket Tan, Porpoise, Imperial Blue and Beluga. Carpets can be chosen to match either the main hide or secondary hide.

For an even softer feel, semi-aniline leather is also available.
