Car Description

Continental GT appearance is far removed from the subtly sporty designs of Bentley's recent seasons, which were comparatively sedate. Designers sought to blend traditional Bentley hallmarks and hand craftsmanship with a contemporary profile and advanced technology. Featuring pillarless hardtop styling, the Continental GT coupe has a minimal front overhang and pronounced haunches over the wheels.

Flanking large inner headlights, the simple yet assertive mesh-type grille resembles that of no other modern Bentley. A flush-mounted rear spoiler rises automatically at high speeds. Air springs contain electronic dampers.

Four people can enjoy the Continental GT coupe. According to Bentley, 6-foot-tall occupants fit easily in the front and rear seats. Interior designers worked with New York basketball players to ensure that people of all sizes and shapes could be accommodated. Leather upholstery comes in a choice of colors. Various types of wood interior trim can be specified.

A symmetrical fascia mates with a center control that rises up and curves to the sides in a shape resembling the design of the Bentley wing insignia. Most routine controls can be operated from the steering wheel.

Operating with twin turbochargers, the Bentley-designed four-overhead-cam 6.0-liter W-12 generates 552 hp at 6,100 rpm and 479 pounds-feet of torque at 1,600 rpm. The six-speed ZF automatic transmission has a manual-shift provision. All-wheel drive is standard.

Ventilated disc brakes have Bosch antilock technology with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution. Side-impact and side curtain-type airbags are installed. All four seats have seat belt pretensioners.
