DRIVING DYNAMICS

WHAT USE IS POWER WITHOUT CONTROL? AS ANY DRIVING ENTHUSIAST WILL TELL YOU, TO APPRECIATE THE LATTER, YOU NEED A CAR CAPABLE OF HANDLING THE FORMER.

The Continental GT is a fine example of our engineers’ determination to create the ultimate Grand Tourer. The coupé’s wide, low-sprung appearance is more than just for looks. Its width means it sits aggressively low to the road. This ‘planted’ appearance means its not just hunkered down ready for action but in motion is incredibly stable at all speeds, in all circumstances.

State-of-the-art suspension, including Intelligent Continuous Damping Control, constantly monitors the car’s attitude and poise. Adjusting the suspension settings hundreds of times a second to deliver a supple ride at low speeds and increased control as your speed climbs.

Unlike standard two-wheel-drive cars, the Continental GT benefits from one of the world’s most advanced all-wheel-drive systems, ensuring that all the power the 12-cylinder engine generates is utilised. Its ability to accelerate under a wave of torque at any speed, in all weather conditions is unparalleled.

All-wheel drive is not simply about delivering superb traction for higher performance, it also ensures greater safety in all weather conditions. The advanced system can instantaneously adjust the power split between the front and rear wheels depending on the available grip. In addition, the uprated Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system operates alongside the all-wheel drive system to deliver superb reassurance whatever your driving style.
