PERFORMANCE

THE SOUL OF THE CONTINENTAL GT IS BENTLEY’S ACCLAIMED 12-CYLINDER, 6-LITRE POWER UNIT, NOW ENGINEERED TO PROVIDE GREATER SUPERCAR PERFORMANCE.

With increases in power, torque and fuel efficiency; the Continental GT’s engine is renowned as one of the most technologically advanced of its kind. Designed in a unique ‘W’ configuration, it is the most compact 12-cylinder engine in the world.

Capable of running on the latest environmentally sustainable bio-fuels thanks to its advanced FlexFuel technology, allowing it to run seamlessly on gasoline, bioethanol (E85) or any combination of the two.

With a 40:60 (front:rear) split power ratio, the Continental GT feels even more poised for action and more controllable cornering.

The Continental GT is even faster than its predecessor. With its power output raised to an immense 575 PS (567 bhp/423 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb ft) of torque. In tandem with an 8-speed Quickshift transmission, gear change times are reduced by 50 per cent, it will launch from standstill to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 197 mph (318 km/h).
