The new Bentley Continental GT coupe has a sculptured new body giving a more defined appearance. There is a more upright matrix radiator grille and a new double horseshoe rear profile together with unique jewelled headlamps with LED daytime-running lights.
The interior of the Bentley Continental GT offers new levels of cabin design, comfort and hand crafted luxury. The seats provide greater support and rear leg room. The new touchscreen infotainment system features state-of-the-art navigation, Google Maps and entertainment while the latest Balanced Mode Radiator speaker technology and Dirac Dimensions™ digital sound processing deliver enhanced audio quality. The new Bentley Continental GT is specified with 20-inch alloy wheels as standard, with, for the first time on the Continental family, the option to upgrade to 21-inch designs. Three styles of wheel are offered, a 20-inch five-spoke version and two 21-inch Elegant and split-rim Sports variations, which come in a variety of chromed and painted finishes.
The 6-litre W12 engine twin-turbocharged engine produces 575PS(567bhp/423kW) and 700Nm (516lb ft) of torque. The Bentley Continental GT is capable of 0-100mph in 10.2 seconds with an overall top speed of 198mph. There will be a new high output, high efficiency V8 engine due for release in late 2011.
