Everything that you have come to expect from Bentley is wrapped up in a pretty bow, or nearly, with the 2014 Bentley Continental GT. The over-the-top cabin more resembles a five-star presidential suite at a brand name resort, less the grand piano of course. Beautiful wood interior trim, four-zone climate control for that perfect temperature, voice controlled computer GUI interface with GPS, on board Wi-Fi with voice attenuated responsive commands are but a few of the countless and modish offerings that you’ll find inside (even if the back seats could be roomier). What will really make your jaw drop is that this cruiser also offers an insane twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 that makes 567 horsepower at 516 pound-feet of torque (something that can get even saucier when you choose the GT Speed version, which features an even faster, beefier engine). All-wheel drive with air suspension easily coasts the 20” wheels with spoked rims over any sort of bumpiness encountered on the roadway, while the mesh grills turn heads as you drive past them in a car that costs more money than most people’s homes do.Read more Read less
For 2015, Bentley have upgraded the GT Speed version of the Continental, giving the car a slight bump in power as well as several aesthetic tweaks. The front of the car gets a slightly reworked bumper, while wheels and headlight surrounds are a little darker. The interior also includes more two tone options, further setting the GT Speed apart from its less powerful siblings. New to the lineup in 2015 is the GT3 R version of the Continental. It is much racier than any of the other Continentals in the lineup, with a unique green and white color scheme. Based on the GT3 race car, the GT3 R is also the most powerful V8 Continental sold. Only the 12-cylinder GT Speed is faster and more powerful.
Supercar-quick; no compromises to comfort; reasonable gas mileage (V8 models); all-weather traction; pleasant top-down in optional convertible; hand-crafted look of interior trims
The Bentley Continental is part personal luxury coupe, part performance-oriented grand-tourer--and the specific combination of those traits depends largely on whether one opts for GT models or the edgier GT Speed. Bentleys are built to specification, with a long list of factory options, upgrades and trims, in addition to a bespoke program that lets buyers entirely customize the look, the only limit, is imagination, taste and budget. Regardless of materials or trims, the level of detail and craftsmanship is well above that of most other luxury cars.
