Enter the new Bentley Continental GT with its sleek lines carving a sharp path through the air, this phenomenal car heralds a new era of unrivalled power, exquisite craftsmanship and cutting-edge automotive technology. It was a dream that come true when I received an invitation call from Bentley to drive all new Continental GT on one of the world class racing track to hit the speed limits.

It’s so satisfying to look into the details that how Bentley’s design team has done a spectacular job in completely reimagining the finest car in its class. Taking our hallmarks of power and refinement and pushing them further still, the new Continental GT redefines what a grand tourer can be. And inside the cabin, it looks and feels like a wholly new level of luxury.

In creating this Bentley Continental coupe, the designers and engineers have delivered everything you expect from Bentley – in a car that can transport four adults comfortably, with enough space for plenty of luggage. Designed and built at the Bentley factory in England, this is a car unlike any other. Consider it the definitive grand tourer.

Interior and tech: Push the button and 12.3-inch high resolution infotainment screen will appear from the dashboard, analogue dials with Bentley Rotating Display, Adaptive Cruise Control, an Inductive Phone Charger, Head-Up Display, Night Vision, Bang & Olufsen Audio and plenty more options you can choose from.

6.0 litre, W12 engine in the new Continental GT embodies the next generation of Bentley drivetrain innovation. With a maximum power output of 626 bhp and torque of 664 lb ft (900 Nm), it can propel the car from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds with top speed of 333 km/h. The engine sits low over the front axle for improved weight distribution, resulting in extraordinary dynamic handling.  A dual-clutch, eight-speed transmission allows for fast gear shifts and, coupled with Active All-Wheel Drive as standard, makes the most of the engine’s phenomenal capabilities. The new Continental GT features the Bentley Dynamic Ride active roll control system as standard – and as the first car in the Bentley range to incorporate a three-chamber, air-spring suspension, it combines extraordinary handling with a remarkably refined, luxurious ride.

Stunning demonstration of Bentley’s unrivalled attention to detail, it delivers a true journey of discovery for the driver. Designed to delight every sense, this is a car to see, feel, hear and appreciate. At the end of the wonderful day I can confidently say that this is the so far, the best Grand Tourer I have driven so far.
