The process of configuring a Bentley Continental GT is an experience that combines pleasure with culture, as it hides many aspects that make reference to the heritage of the British manufacturer.
This can be seen from the very first step, the selection of the exterior hue. To keep things organized, Bentley has devised color categories, seven of them to be more precise. The shades found in each one offer a wide variety of designations that also include historical ones, such as Barnato Green. This commemorates Wolf Barnato, one of the famous Bentley Boys, who also saved the company from financial collapse in its early days.
Another special features comes in the form of the Mulliner specification. Mulliner was a Bentley coach builder in the past and now its name is used for a carbon fiber exterior package and a limited edition wheel model. There’s also a Mulliner catalogue that allows you to further personalize a few interior details, like the headrests and the treadplates.
Speaking of wheels, the standard ones use a 20-inch size and a painted finish, but there are multiple optional 21-inch models. These not only bring various designs, but can also feature a polished finish instead of the aforementioned one.
You’d expect the interior of the Bentley Continental GT to offers things such as a selection of colors for the main and secondary hides, as well as a wide range of veneers. It does and it also comes with an amazing offer in terms of personalization. When configuring the cabin, there are 17 distinct areas that allow you to mix, match or add features to. These range from three choices of embroidered emblems to sport pedals, which can be considered a piece of art.
The list of optional features is spread between the exterior, interior and the tech features - we’ll mention some of the most important from each category.
The exterior styling area brings items such as carbon ceramic brakes and a space-saving spare wheel. As for the interior styling, this includes seat massage and ventilation, a removable stowage case and lambswool rugs, among others. In terms of technology features, you can order an eleven-speaker Naim audio system, Adaptive Cruise Control and a rear-view camera.
In the world of top-class automobile audio systems, there are other competitors that top Naim’s 1,100 watts, but this is as irrelevant as possible. That’s because the British company has managed to give us a finesse which surpasses everything we’ve experience in the past. Nowadays every company brags it can bring the concert hall inside your car, but Naim actually makes this happen.
In addition to this, Bentley also offers various packages for the Continental GT, with these mixing the standard and the Mulliner items to offer a more convenient way of upgrading the vehicle.Continue reading
