Once VW acquired sole provider rights to the Bentley marque, many purists wondered what new model would emerge and if re badging would occur. However significant investment, and distillation of Bentley essence, produced an instant new classic pleasing motoring enthusiast worldwide, as well as all “Bentley Boys”. The all new Bentley Continental GT model combines many heritage aspects with cutting edge VW engineering.
The heart of the car is its 6 litre W12 engine, featuring twin turbos, 48 valves and 411kW. Despite weighing 2.4 tonnes, a 0-100km/h of 4.8 seconds is only 0.6 seconds slower than its contemporary Porsche 911 Turbo. The 6 speed ZF automatic gearbox supplies power to all 4 wheels, normally 50:50, but variable to cope with any slip. Traction control, ABS, EBD and an electronic stability program ensure control at all time.
The soul is an elegant “Diamond Black” fastback body, meticulously built with a sumptuous interior clothed in wood and leather where attention to detail is paramount. Organ stop vent controls, elegant embellished seat recline levers and a split armrest are just some of the features picked up on first viewing. Chrome accents and the cherry coloured timber dash combine with split level fawn and black leather to produce a luxurious drawing room cockpit capable of 300km/h.
