Launched in 2003 by the renowned British marque, the Continental GT is an elegant embodiment of luxurious grand touring. Unveiled in style at the Geneva, Le Mans and Goodwood, this was a new model for a new Bentley customer, and true to the brand’s heritage still hand assembled with a sumptuous hand crafted interior.
This second generation Continental GT is equipped with a twin-turbo 4.0 L V8 engine producing 500 hp at 6,000 and 487 lb⋅ft of torque at 1,700, through an 8-speed ZF transmission with Quickshift and steering column mounted gearshift paddles. The car is capable of reaching a top speed of 192 mph (309 km/h). The 4.0 L V8 engine features Cylinder deactivation technology. At less aggressive throttle openings, the engine switches off four of its eight cylinders, so they only act as gas springs. As soon as the car accelerates, the other four cylinders seamlessly re-activate. The engine also features hot-side inside (HSI) technology: in essence, a method of reducing both energy wastage and engine weight by mounting the turbochargers within the ‘V’ of the V8 cylinder arrangement. The result is improved throttle response due to the shorter intake. Switchable hydraulic engine mounts change to a ‘soft’ state while the car is idling to improve isolation from vibration, then back to ‘hard’ when the car is driven more dynamically, reducing roll and boosting performance.
Inside participants are greeted with the luxurious surroundings of a hand crafted cabin and a plethora of technology. The craftsmanship is apparent throughout, from the hand-stitched, diamond quilted leather seats to ‘Engine Spin’ aluminium accents. On the technology front the car is equipped with an 8" touch screen infotainment system, and this particular vehicle features the optional Naim® for Bentley Premium Audio System that consists of 11 Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) speakers and an 1,100 watt amplifier. The sound produced is the result of an acoustic analysis that considered every possible facto even down to the way the car’s body panels behave in motion.
Whether your desire is to commute or tour in sophisticated style, with its toned back palette and fine spec this Bentley Continental is certainly a good choice.
