BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GT The Ultimate Expression of Luxury

A work of art

It is as fast as a super sports car, as elegant as a luxurious yacht and its cost is similar to a detached house. It’s not one of these cars you gaze at in a showroom, but it’s a work of art; you want to let your fingers run along its lines, sensing the engineer’s own feelings when it was crafted. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A FLAW, you won’t find any! There is no human or electronic eye more experienced than the eyes of Crewe’s technical department, who have been examining meticulously Bentley’s surfaces in order to detect the quality of the materials, the parts assembly and the aesthetic quality, and find any flaw before the customer. There is no place for flaws in Bentley’s history! The finest wood, steel and leather that exists (or used to exist) in the market are used for the whole range, making it so unique.

Invisible Merits

Apart from the visible merits of the Continental GT, there are also “invisible” ones, like the force that gives life to this 2.5 ton powerful body: a W12 engine from Wolfsburg’s collection (recently a version of it won the “Le Mans”). The only common feature with the company’s flagship is the cylinders’ number (12) and the capacity (6 litres), which, along with twin turbochargers, develop 575 hp at 6,000 rpm. A ZF 6-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel mounted gearshift paddles comes to complete the engine. From that point on, it delivers performance close to the group’s other “child”, the Lamborghini, rather than the Phaeton. No matter which gear you may select, whether you drive in the city or on the motorway, just a soft touch on the accelerator pedal is enough for the torque to surface, pushing the passengers back on their anatomically designed leather seats. Meanwhile, the “racing” sound coming from the under-bonnet space resembles a gentle summer breeze that sweeps through your hair in the middle of the sea.
