A sense of speed and presence

The new Continental GT features clean, superformed lines and a wide, low body, evoking a sense of speed and presence. On unlocking the car, a pre-programmed sequence of exterior lighting welcomes you. To complement the car’s striking interior design, the interior mood lighting (fitted as standard) can be configured to your preference. With lighting strips created to accentuate the car’s key design lines, you can choose vibrant or muted settings in seven colours, as well as backlighting the treadplates in your chosen colour.

The seats are minimalist in style, with a streamlined design that ensures they are as comfortable as they are elegant. Smooth centre panels maximise the effectiveness of heating, cooling, ventilation and massage functions, while handcrafted quilting adds detail to the bolsters and upper areas – parts of the seats that can be seen from outside the car. The seat memory selectors are located in the door pads, allowing you to select your preferred seating position with a flick of a switch before you even sit down. A satin chrome handle is used to tilt each rear seat forward and access the rear of the cabin, with an alternative ‘express’ switch, which moves the seat electrically instead.

Innovative all new performance

Created for effortless, exhilarating driving, the new Continental GT is built on an innovative chassis and electrical architecture, featuring a completely new 6.0 litre W12 engine and an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, for smooth, fast and efficient gear changes.

As a result, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds) and deliver a phenomenal top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h).

Four driving modes are accessible at the turn of a dial. Comfort optimises the chassis and drivetrain for luxurious cruising, while Sport mode retunes the engine for a more dynamic response – with the variable exhaust valve adjusting the character of the exhaust note to match. The Bentley mode provides the optimum combination of Sport and Comfort, while a Custom mode allows you to configure your own settings for future use.

Effortlessly efficient

In the engine itself, high-pressure direct injection has been employed alongside port injection, allowing the engine to switch seamlessly between the two, depending on which is most efficient in any given situation. Along with a raft of fuel innovations, it ensures that emission levels are among the best in its class, while also maximising range.

The most advanced Bentley ever

The new Continental GT features innovations throughout the drivetrain, making it the most advanced Bentley model ever built.

Dual clutch transmission provides impressively quick gearshifts and smooth acceleration to enhance the car’s energetic character. The 48V Active Roll Control system senses road conditions and changes the car’s movement instantaneously to optimise handling and ensure a smooth ride. And electric steering improves feedback to the driver so that it always feels right for the driving conditions.

Variable Displacement technology

Beneath the bonnet, variable displacement technology allows one entire bank of cylinders to disengage at gentle throttle openings, reducing the number in operation to six and optimising fuel consumption accordingly, without the driver even noticing. The moment the throttle opens wider, the engine reverts to the power of all 12 cylinders.

New Continental GT First Edition


A stunning showcase of craftsmanship

The new Continental GT First Edition is the most exquisitely appointed expression of the new car. Created to celebrate the launch of this ground-breaking grand tourer, it represents a stunning showcase of Bentley craftsmanship and design.

The specification of the interior has been curated by the designers themselves and brings together the very best features available on the new Continental GT. This includes the Bentley Rotating Display, which enables the driver to switch between three different fascia panels: the default 12.3” high resolution touchscreen, a more classically styled instrument panel with three handcrafted analogue dials and, at the end of your journey, a clean, veneer-only face for an uninterrupted flow of wood, right across the dashboard.

A number of handcrafted details identify the car as the First Edition, including discreet Union Flag badging to the interior and exterior.

One of Bentley’s unique dual veneers is included as standard, creating the impression of even more space in the cabin. Choose from either Tamo Ash, Liquid Amber, Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus, Crown Cut Walnut, Koa, Burr Walnut or Dark Stained Burr Walnut together with Grand Black.

The Mulliner Driving Specification is also included, adding drilled alloy foot pedals, jewel-finish oil and fuel filler caps, and a unique, polished black 22” wheel. And the diamond-in-diamond quilt pattern on seats, door panels and rear quarter panels is enhanced still further with contrast stitching only available in the First Edition.

With the City Specification and Touring Specification packages included as standard, it features all the technology you could need for comfortable, effortless driving, in the city or on the motorway.

For those who demand the very best, there is no more finely crafted grand tourer than the Continental GT First Edition.

Practically limitless customisation

The new Continental GT is built by hand, offering practically limitless scope for personalisation. Taken together, the vast range of options available for both the interior and exterior of your car ensure you need never see another one like it.

Interior options

The new Continental GT can be commissioned with stunning dual veneers, in which the natural grain of wood is contrasted with clean, minimalist Grand Black, the two finishes separated by a Chrome Pinstripe – a 3mm strip of polished chrome, tracing a ring around the cabin. Alternatively, there is a choice of nine single veneers, including new High Gloss Carbon Fibre. Any of these can be enhanced by the same Chrome Pinstripe used in the dual veneers (except Carbon Fibre). 

The elegant, wide centre console can be commissioned with a sleek finish inspired by the Côtes de Genève finish used inside mechanical wristwatches.

And then there is the Bentley Rotating Display: a stunning combination of high technology and traditional craftsmanship. A three-face section of the dashboard, it rotates according to your preferences, offering you the option of a high-resolution touchscreen or a set of analogue dials with polished chrome bezels, before returning to a smooth, uninterrupted panel of veneered fascia at the end of your journey.

Create your own look

Many of the polished chrome details inside the car are finished with Bentley’s refined new diamond knurling – an eye-catching finish that makes controls easier to grip, while bouncing light beautifully around the car.

There are 15 interior hides to choose from covering everything from the seats and the dashboard top to the door panels and car headliner. They are Magnolia, Camel, Linen, Portland, Saddle, Brunel, Cumbrian Green, Burnt Oak, Damson, Cricket Ball, Hotspur, Newmarket Tan, Porpoise, Imperial Blue and Beluga. Carpets can be chosen to match either the main hide or secondary hide. Hand cross-stitching is now also available to compliment your choice of hides. 

For an even softer feel, semi-aniline leather is also available.

Exterior choices

New to Continental GT is a panoramic fixed glass sunroof, which has an interior blind in Alcantara, which matches the headliner colour. Explore this new option on the Bentley Configurator.

Exterior finishes
The beautiful new piano-finish paint process is applied to each new Continental GT by the craftsmen and women at the Bentley factory in Crewe, working alongside the very latest technology in robot paint systems to provide an unrivalled level of detail. 

An impressive range of standard and optional colours are available, and if you are looking for a special colour which is unique to you, Mulliner are able to work with you to create something truly bespoke.
