When Bentley released the Continental GT in 2004 it brought the legendary British Marque into the reaches of mere mortals, rather than just the super-rich.
But it was never really a dynamic car; sure there were fast powerful versions, but none were sports cars.
The second generation got a little more verve, though despite being all-new it barely looked any different. Now the third generation is out and represents a step-change for the Conti GT.
BOTB customers certainly agree, with five Bentley winners so far!
Taking inspiration from the EXP10 Speed6 concept, the new styling is far more athletic, with a similar nose that’s much lower and muscular rear arches leading to a rear-end far removed from previous models.
There are oval taillights and a lower, more sharply creased boot lid, all of which add up to a seriously good-looking car. Lighter weight and focused dynamics promise a more sporting drive too, while performance won’t be lacking thanks to the 6.0 litre W12 engine producing a massive 626bhp.
The normal W12 model now tops out at 207mph too – staggering numbers. The best has got even better and you can win your very own Bentley Continental with BOTB – get your tickets now...
