Continental GT

Fitted with Bentley’s 4.0 litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the Continental GT can be considered the lynchpin of the Continental GT range.


The Continental GT captures the essence of the Continental GT range. The quintessential luxury grand tourer, it is a true design classic, showcasing the very best of British automotive craft. There is no more accomplished combination of high performance with the practicality you need to truly enjoy long journeys.

Its twin-turbocharged 4.0 litre engine has the power to deliver exhilarating performance the moment you put your foot down, accompanied by the much-loved exhaust note that only a V8 engine can provide. With four driving modes ranging from Comfort to Sport – and the facility to configure your own settings – the Continental GT guarantees a gratifying drive.

The power of the Continental GT is truly formidable: 542 bhp (550 PS), 0-60 in 3.9 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds) and an incredible top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h)*. Yet power is just one dimension of this car’s driving experience.

Put the car into Sport mode and you will enjoy an instantly responsive, exhilarating drive, optimised for accelerating sharply and cornering hard. Comfort mode, on the other hand, makes the most of the car’s air suspension, offering a truly refined ride. Bentley mode provides a balance between the two, while Custom allows you to adjust individual settings, creating the driving mode that’s right for you.


The optional Bentley Dynamic Ride anti-roll system boosts ride comfort even further, allowing for tight control when pushing the car to its limits, without compromising on the smoothness you expect from a luxury grand tourer.



beauty in detail

The exterior is characterised by handcrafted details, including the gloss black Bentley matrix grille and elliptical quad tailpipes, while 21" Five Tri-Spoke painted wheels are fitted as standard. Choose the optional Blackline specification and many of these polished chrome details can be rendered in black.

Inside, a ring of Crown Cut Walnut veneer emerges from the wide centre console and flows into the doors, encircling the cabin. You can choose from five hide colours for the Bentley Continental GT interior, including deep Beluga black and Cricket Ball, a rich, warm red – all of which can be complemented with embroidery, piping, or contrast stitching. You can also choose from a wide range of optional veneers, including high-gloss and open-pore wood, plus technical materials.
