CREATING A NEW GT COUPé ALLOWED OUR DESIGN TEAM TO COMBINE INSPIRATION FROM PAST ICONIC CONTINENTAL MODELS WITH THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES.
This skilful blend of heritage and contemporary ensured that the Continental GT would be more than just an eye-catching evolution.
The familiar haunch line – a crisp modern echo of the original 1950s R-Type Continental – has even sharper radii to create distinct surfaces giving a wider, longer and more sporting feel.
These sharp, contemporary lines are only achievable as a result of new design and manufacturing technologies. It’s only thanks to Bentley’s state-of-the-art facilities and its life-long commitment to producing coach built cars that these exquisite details can be achieved.
The Continental GT profile is as characteristic as ever. The classic, imposing matrix radiator grille, has been given an even stronger feel. The headlights have been designed to incorporate a beautiful jewellery effect. And at the rear, distinctive wraparound lights – seamlessly integrated into the haunches of the car – are distinguished by their signature ‘floating’ LED lamps.
Meanwhile, the boot lid introduces the powerful ‘double horse-shoe’ motif first seen on the all-new flagship Bentley Mulsanne, while flared elliptical exhaust tailpipes drive home the Continental GT’s sporting credentials.
