Continental (2010-2018)

In 2010, the Bentley Continental GT saw its first significant redesign since its launch in 2003. Ushering in a suite of new models, this reinvention of the quintessential modern Bentley took the Continental’s peerless craftsmanship, exquisite style and near-limitless power – and pushed it to an entirely new level. It introduced new technology, greater efficiency, state-of-the-art materials, a sleek new silhouette and a sportier feel.

An evolution of the range followed in 2015, with styling changes to the fenders, bumpers, With the introduction of new models based on a leaner V8 powertrain, the Continental GT soon made its debut in elite GT3 racing. Bentley’s motorsport team refined their car for the racetrack, making technological advances that soon found their way back into the road-going cars.

The Continental range, in both coupe and convertible, can be found on our Pre-Owned Stock Locator.

An evolving range.
In 2014, the limited edition GT3-R was launched – a road-going Continental inspired by Bentley Motorsport’s success on the track. And in 2015, the entire Continental GT range evolved further. Styling changes to the fenders, bumpers, radiator, wing vents and boot lid resulted in an even more contemporary look, while new seat finishes, paint colours and wheel options were introduced. Beneath the bonnet, updates to both the V8 and W12 engines increased their power. A new variable displacement system was also introduced, improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions.

By 2017, the Continental GT was available in a choice of ten models, from the Continental GT V8 to the super-powerful Continental Supersports. On this page, you will find details of every model launched between 2010 and 2018.

Continental Supersports (2017)

Launched in 2017, the second-generation Continental Supersports pushed Bentley performance to extraordinary new heights. With agile handling, blistering acceleration and an awe-inspiring top speed, it remains the most exhilarating car in this range both as a coupé and a convertible.

Bold body styling includes carbon fibre accent details inside and out, reducing weight and contributing to the car’s sporting feel. Distinctive carbon fibre bonnet vents, side skirts and a rear spoiler enhance its supercar style even further, while optimising aerodynamics. On the convertible, the hood is sleek and streamlined.

With dark tint front and rear lights, 21” black and bright machined forged sports alloy wheels, gloss black tailpipes and a gloss black matrix grille, the dramatic picture is complete. Today, one look at the Continental Supersports tells you everything you need to know: this is the most powerful, performance-focused car Bentley has ever built.

The 6.0 litre W12 engine was tuned by Bentley’s engineers to deliver a phenomenal 700 bhp (710 PS) and 1017 Nm of torque. As a result, the Continental Supersports coupé can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds) and on to 209 mph (336 km/h) – the highest top speed of any Bentley. The Supersports Convertible can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds) to a blistering top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h), an amazing experience, especially when the top is down. And when the optional titanium exhaust system is fitted – available as part of the optional Supersports X Specification – that incredible engine sounds even more powerful.

Continental GT3-R (2014)

Inspired by the track, Made for the Road
The Continental GT3-R was inspired by the Bentley GT3. As such, it is probably the most uncompromising and focused road car Bentley has produced thus far. Furthermore, with a limited production run, the GT3-R will always be extremely rare. For some drivers, performance is the ultimate luxury. And that is why Bentley built the GT3-R: a road-going GT extreme with all the power, responsiveness and acceleration the GT3-R badge implies.

Lighter and Lower
For the GT3-R, Bentley introduced more carbon fibre, a titanium exhaust, and removed the rear seats, all to make this car 100 kilos lighter than the lightest Continental V8. And by lowering the ride-height, and so the centre of gravity, it provides tighter handling and faster cornering.

Extreme Performance
Acceleration is the mark of any high performance car. For the GT3-R, Bentley shortened the final drive ratio of the 8 speed Quickshift transmission and enhanced the calibration to make gearshifts even quicker. The changes to the transmission compliment the engine design and reduced weight resulting in the quickest acceleration of any road-going Bentley to date, with a 0-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds).

Continental GT V8 S (2013)

The Continental GT V8 S was introduced in 2013, offering a more performance-focused driving alternative to the standard V8 model, while retaining its distinctive red enamel winged ‘B’ badges.

Lowered sports suspension (by 10mm), revised damping and uprated anti-roll bars improved agility, body control and cornering relative to the Continental GT V8, while the recalibrated steering provides enhanced feedback and feel. A sleek body kit – including a front splitter, side sills and a rear diffuser – boosts aerodynamic performance by reducing front-end lift, improving stability at higher speeds. The picture is completed by a striking gloss black radiator grille and 20” open spoke wheels with red painted brake callipers.

In 2016, an exclusive Black Edition was revealed, for both coupé and convertible. adding black 21” seven spoke wheels, black exterior details and dark tint lights. The body kit, door mirrors and brake callipers could be specified in a choice of four accent colours: St. James’ Red, Hallmark, Beluga and Cyber Yellow.

Both the Black Edition and the standard model feature a 4.0 litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that delivers 520 bhp (388 kW / 528 PS at 6,000 rpm) and 680 Nm of torque. As a result, the cars can reach 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, before climbing to 192 mph (309 km/h). The GT V8 S Convertible can achieve 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 191 mph (308 km/h).

Continental GT V8 (2012)

Aimed at lovers of the famous V8 engine growl, the Bentley Continental GT V8, introduced in 2012, can be identified by its red enamel winged ‘B’ badges, seen on the bonnet, boot and wheel centres.

The Continental GT V8, in coupé and convertible, was the first Bentley to feature variable displacement engine technology, which delivers both fuel efficiency and all power you need in an innovative way. At full power, it delivers a massive 660 Nm of torque, propelling the coupé from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and on to a potential top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h). Yet with CO2 emissions of a mere 246 g/km, its emissions figures remain highly competitive.  The convertible accelerates from a standing start to 60 miles an hour in just 4.7 seconds, and on to a potential top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h).

At its launch, seven exterior finishes were available, with five interior hide colour combinations. In addition to Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus, customers could choose from veneers including Burr Walnut, Madrona, Piano Black, Tamo Ash and Dark Stained Madrona.
