The all-new Continental GT makes its global debut at the IAA 2017 in Frankfurt on 12 September.
The third generation of the legendary Bentley Continental GT is designed, engineered and handcrafted in Great Britain, ensuring the highest levels of attention to detail, artistry and cutting-edge technology are blended together to create the finest Grand Tourer ever produced.
The new Continental GT features an all-new, enhanced version of Bentley’s celebrated 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12 TSI engine which, for the first time, is available with a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission.
The sprint to 100 km/h takes 3.7 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds) with top speed reached at 333 km/h (207 mph). The New Continental GT also has a Grand Touring range of 740 km (460 miles).
A new, technically advanced, adaptive chassis uses Bentley’s intelligent 48-volt Dynamic Ride System to ensure a responsive ride and exceptional handling and refinement in all road conditions. The new system controls ride comfort and lateral roll, cushioning passengers from excessive movement as well as making the car feel effortlessly precise.
The more sculptural and sharply defined muscular exterior design is complemented by a luxurious interior packed with exquisite details that showcases major evolutions in Bentley’s unique application of technology, including an advanced, fully digital, driver-focused instrument panel and revolutionary Bentley Rotating Display.
New limited edition Mulsanne Design Series by Mulliner also debuts, showcasing brand-new Tessellated coloured carbon fibre.
Special Mulliner-created Flying Spur V8 S model will be exhibited. The world’s fastest SUV – the Bentayga W12 – is also on display.
In addition to displaying an array of the world’s most luxurious and desirable cars, the British manufacturer is hosting a new tech lab – an interactive area dedicated to showcasing Bentley’s breadth of technological and engineering excellence.
