Bentley introduced the third generation of the Continental GT in 2018 with two engine choices, but the Speed version came in 2021 with more power and more technologies. After Volkswagen took-over the Bentley brand, it transformed it into the fastest luxury brand globally and took a different path than its former partner, Rolls-Royce. With the Continental GT range, Bentley conquered the person...

2021 - Present

Bentley introduced the Speed version for its 2018 Continental GT Convertible and packed more performance-oriented technologies than its non-Speed siblings. The GT Speed Convertible was the Continental family's pinnacle and provided the most comprehensive package of luxury and performance on the market. It was Bentley's way of saying that it produced the fastest four-seat convertible...

2019 - Present

The Bentley Continental GT showed up on the market in 2004 and it had a second generation in 2011. But it took a trained eye to differentiate the two generations unless they were parked next to each other, especially since they had the same platform. The real transformation was in 2018, when a third-generation showed up. And that was the true change. It took Bentley a lot of time to do it, but t...

2019 - Present

Just like the coupe version, the second generation of the Bentley Continental GT Convertible (or third, if you ask Bentley) was launched with a twin-turbocharged W12 only, somewhat alienating some potential customers who don't require that many cylinders in their luxurious open-top grand tourer. They should fret not, though, because the "entry-level" Continental GT V8 Convertible ...

2017 - Present

Sharing is caring. At least this is what they say. But sharing a ride with a super fast car was usually possible with only one friend. That was no longer the case with the new Bentley’s Continental GT Supersports. The machinery was an extremely fast and luxurious 4-seater. We could also call it a social super car, as it was not designed for track. It didn’t do bad on the track either, but th...

2013 - 2015

The new Continental GT 4-seat coupe builds on the success of its iconic predecessor, capturing that GT spirit but with even higher standards of design, engineering, luxury, craftsmanship, dynamic performance, everyday practicality, and refinement. A beautifully sculptured new body gives the Bentley Continental GT coupe an even crisper, more defined appearance. The contemporary interior offer...

2011 - 2013

In late 2011, Bentley introduced a facelift for the Continental GT. The revamp brought a few cosmetic changes but, more importantly a second engine that would be offered as a more efficient alternative to the existing W12 powerplant. The Continental GT received a 4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which had been developed together with Audi and produces 500 hp and a torque of 600 Nm (442 lb-ft). T...
