The Bentley Continental GT is a large, ultra luxury coupe. Standard equipment highlights include bi-HID headlights, adjustable suspension damping, auto-latching doors, four-zone automatic climate control, 14-way power front seats with three-position memory, DVD navigation and a premium audio system with a glove box-mounted CD changer. Bentley also offers a host of customization options, including out-of-range exterior paint colors and special interior trim materials and color schemes. The Mulliner Driving Specification Package adds 20-inch two-piece wheels and unique leather upholstery.
The Continental GT comes with a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo W12. This power plant is good for 552 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission choice and it sends the engine’s power through a continuous four-wheel-drive system. According to Bentley, the Continental GT is capable of zero to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and a top speed just shy of 200 mph.
Standard safety features include stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes and side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers.
The Continental GT weighs in at a hefty 5,300 pounds. As one would expect, this mass imparts the car with an aura of solidity. More surprising is that the GT is stable and secure when sent through corners. Much credit goes to the car’s adjustable and automatic air suspension system. With little drama, the twin-turbo W12 produces tremendous thrust. Braking is similarly effortless with short stops and superb feedback through the pedal.
Real metal accents and supple leather throughout the Continental GT’s cabin highlight the old-world design elements, such as the push-pull vent controls and deep-set gauges. Even the door-mounted window switches and the levers for moving the front seats forward are made of real metal. Interior controls, though complex, can be easily mastered without having to consult the owner’s manual. In the back, the GT has seating for two people due to sloping in the rear deck and window, and luggage capacity is 13 cubic feet, more than double that offered by the Aston Martin DB9.
