Fresh and New – Bentley Continental GT

MyDrive | Bentley Motors – With plenty of design cues from the EXP10 Speed6 and the Bentayga, Bentley has just announced full details of its new Continental GT, the definitive Grand Tourer. As Rolls-Royce continues to break ground with new and exciting designs, it was only a matter of time that Bentley returned fire with a new Continental GT.

Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Britain, the new third-generation Bentley Continental GT combines spirited, focused performance with handcrafted luxury and cutting-edge technology, to create the finest Grand Tourer ever produced.

Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors, said: “Bentley has been at the forefront of luxury Grand Touring for nearly one hundred years. The new, third-generation Continental GT is the pinnacle of our design and engineering achievements and marks the next step in Bentley’s journey.

“We are the world leader in luxury mobility and our products and services define new luxury in the automotive world. The new Continental GT encapsulates our desire to innovate as well as celebrate our heritage and take the Bentley ownership experience to the next, unparalleled level.”
