Bentley Continental GT receives Motor Klassik award 2013
Continental GT receives award two years in a row
For the second year in a row Bentley’s Continental GT was selected ‘Classic Car of the Future’ in the Coupe Category by readers of the prestigious Motor Klassik magazine, a publication of Motor Presse Stuttgart.
Throughout Bentley’s history, iconic grand tourers have forged the brand’s reputation. In the 1950s the beautiful R-Type Continental set new standards of performance and style. Gaining inspiration from the R-Type, universally regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful cars, the Bentley styling team designed the Continental GT . Launched in 2002, the Bentley Continental GT revolutionised the luxury coupe market, with its combination of supercar performance and dynamism with remarkable everyday practicality.
Remarking on the Motor Klassik award, Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, CEO of Bentley Motors, said: “Bentley’s heritage is a cornerstone of our brand. For decades our cars have defined ultimate luxury and high performance grand touring. It is our goal to continue to build the best luxury cars in the world. We are honored that the readers recognize the Continental GT as a future classic and we thank them for this prestigious award.”
The award was presented at the Motor Klassik gala award ceremony at Schloss Dyck in Jüchen, Westphalia on April 9th.
