2019 Bentley Continental GT: Redefining the luxury GT

Bentley gt 2019

There are some interiors that we appreciate for their simple elegance, such as. It has better off-road capability by design, but the Sport could be made to have an equal level of luxury, while maintaining its superior performance and dynamics I don't want them to do it, but I still think it is an interesting study. The glovebox is decently spacious, too, but the door pockets are fairly slim and limiting in their shape. But it's the Continental's available rotating center display that's the true party-piece - a three-faced system that swaps between a 12. Because a driveshaft to power the front wheels has to travel through the block itself, Bentley had to trim down one of the main bearings.

The front and front three-quarters views are gorgeous. Mega-machines like this Conti eliminate that first-world problem. Adding to the range of driver assistance features is Bentley Safeguard Plus, while also available are 360-degree cameras, traffic sign recognition, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, and pedestrian warning. There are two lovely new signature lines, one that runs from the top of the front wheelwell and along the side of the car, and a second that climbs over the rear haunch. But, remember the third-gen edition will release in the U. A panoramic sunroof adds additional ambiance, as does the optional mood lighting.

Both are ultra-stylish, but the S65 is more practical with a larger trunk and marginally more interior space. Yes, it helps make a wonderful cabin all the more delightful. Speak to your local Bentley dealer for more details. There is a real sense of symmetry and proportion in the Continental's cabin. I should call special attention to the brakes.

The new car has a wheelbase 5. The 12-cylinder W engine will produce 626 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. Choose from either Tamo Ash, Liquid Amber, Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus, Crown Cut Walnut, Koa, Burr Walnut or Dark Stained Burr Walnut together with Grand Black. Looking at the fact above, at least, we can predict that this one will be a super fast car just like its predecessor. Not quite the master of practicality, then, and with plush carpets, you'll want to be careful what you stick in the trunk anyway.

An impressive range of standard and optional colours are available, and if you are looking for a special colour which is unique to you, are able to work with you to create something truly bespoke. Sometimes power is its own reward. But on this particular drive, on switchbacks up through the Alps, I want lithe, and the W-12, despite having twin turbos and more torque than a Mack truck, is not lithe. Under the hood, Bentley uses the same 6. At a minimum, we'd opt for the Rotating Display, and add the Touring, Mood Lighting and Front Seat Comfort Specifications. With the Front Seat Comfort Specification, the front seats come with adjustable headrests, cushion length and side bolsters, as well as the aforementioned ventilation and massage.

They never showed a hint of fade, which was doubly nice because Bentley employs side-to-side torque vectoring via braking. It also gets a new dual-mass flywheel and an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission for smoother acceleration and quicker shifts. It also glides around corners like a sports car half its size thanks to the brilliant brake-based torque vectoring introduced on the old Supersports model. The closest we saw was 150 mph or so. The suspension of the V8 has been tweaked, but only tuned to match the change in weight and distribution. Hands needn't get involved either, as the Continental can be optioned with a hands-free trunk lid.

The new Bentley Continental GT Convertible

Buyers can spec their leather upholstery in 15 different colors, with five different configurations split between one or a combination of two hides. The 9-iron applique notwithstanding, I love the mammoth rear haunches. To improve handling, the all-wheel-drive system now no longer defaults to a 40:60 front-to-rear power split. Bentley engineers wanted a home run, not a double. Colors include Burnt Oak, Cricket Ball, and Porpoise, and can be matched with a selection of nine veneers with single or dual finish, including Tamo Ash, High-Gloss Carbon Fiber and Crown Cut Walnut. The First Edition also includes the Mulliner Driving Specification, which sees the model ride on 22-inch polished black alloy wheels, while the interior upholstery features bespoke diamond-in-diamond quilting on the seats, door panels, and rear quarter panels. Not much harshes one's mellow as thoroughly as being stuck behind slow-moving peasantry.
