Ride of the Week: Bentley Reveals The Most Exquisite Way To Get To 207 MPH

Bentley has always positioned the Continental GT as the ultimate Grand Tourer with its perfect balance of power and poise. Today, the company takes those developments to the next level with the third-generation Continental GT. The new super coupe is an effortless evolution of the model that debuted in 2003 with a design that’s sleeker and more elegant than ever before.

The new design takes from the well-received EXP 10 Speed concept and you’ll find many of those details in the new GT. From the muscular rear haunches to the larger grille, the styling cues have been perfectly translated into their flagship 2+2.

The car will be powered by their signature 6.0L W12 engine that will be matched to a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission for the first time. Power figures will definitely have you impressed as the 626-hp GT can from 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and will top out at 207 mph. It will also feature a new Active All-Wheel-Drive system that can revert to rear-wheel-drive during normal driving for a sportier feel on the road.

Of course, the car is rich with details, options, and amenities that include a 48-volt Dynamic Ride System for a new level of ride comfort and handling, ‘diamond in diamond’ leather stitching, up to 70 exterior color options, 15 hide and carpet options, 21″ or 22″ wheels, an all-new three-sided unit that hides a 12.3 touchscreen, analog dials, or a wooden veneer.
