Officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show last September, new 2012 Bentley Continental GTC was sold  at the auction organized by Bentley Manchester to a generous buyer  for an impressive £240,000 ($325,000). All the proceeds went to Children in Need, an annual charitable fundraiser organized by the BBC and aimed at helping disadvantaged children and adolescents.

2012 Bentley GTC went under the hammer at a star-studded event in Hilton Hotel Manchester, hosted by Gary Barlow and supported by Kelly Rowland, Chris Moyles, Sir Terry Wogan, Coleen Rooney and JLS. Luxury car immediately caught the eye of several generous bidders. By the time the auctioneer had finished, the car had nearly hit the quarter of a million mark. Gary Barlow added some extra drama to proceedings by putting his own bid in for the Bentley and promising to deliver the car in person to the new owners.

Director at Bentley Manchester, Jon Crossley was impressed by the auction. Nearly 400 people saw the auction unfold and, as the price kept on rising, the whole place fell silent. To reach £ 240.000, even for the very latest Bentley which is still making its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show, just takes your breath away, he said.

Except his new car, hand-delivered to them by X-Factor Gary Barlow, the winning bidders is also invited to Bentley’s factory in Crewe to select the woods and leather for the interior of the car and where the company’s craftsmen will stitch the signatures of the attending celebs in to the interior of the new GTC, making it unique in the world.

The new Bentley Continental GTC is powered by a 6.0 liter, twin-turbocharged W12 engine which provides 575hp and 700Nm of torque. The GTC accelerates from standstill to 100km/h in 4.8 seconds and the top speed 314km/h.
