The Bentley Continental GT has always been a love/hate kinda thing. Personally I’m a liker.
But today at the Frankfurt Motor Show they’ve released the next gen Conti GT…it’s been a long time coming let’s face it.
It’s evolution over revolution. But uh, just look at it! It’s stunning!
It’s available to order now, with deliveries to Footballers starting in Q2 2018.
Featuring 48v electrics, shorter overhangs thanks to a lengthened wheelbase. It’s powered by a revised 6.0 litre W12 making 626 BHP and 900 Nm of torque. It should do 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and top out at a whopping 207 MPH.
Thanks to cylinder deactivation tech, a new dual clutch gearbox and part time four wheel drive you should be able to drive for 500 miles on a single tank. A real continent eater.
A V8 is on the way and a hybrid will no doubt see the light of day in a few years time.
