2019 Bentley Continental GT Drag Races Nissan GT-R, Trampling Is Heavy

The 2019 Bentley Continental GT is basically the first all-new incarnation of the Woking animal since the original, which showed up back in 2003. Perhaps the most impressive part of this car is how well the Crewe engineers disguised the weight of the thing (after all, we're talking about a two-tone machine here).

So while many owners go fot the Woking toy thanks to its prestige and its cross-continent-cruising abilities, there's nothing strange about the Conti GT being used for drag racing.

Well, this is precisely what we want to showcase today, as we've brought along a straight-line sprinting session that sees the 2019 Continental GT duking it out with a Nissan GT-R - you can check it all out in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page.

We're talking about a 2017 incarnation of Godzilla, which, as far as we know, comes in stock form.

This drag racing session took part in Russia, as part of a review for the 2019 Continental GT. Nevertheless, the acceleration stunt took place on the street.

However, the 635 horsepower, W12 machine also battled another supercar, namely a Ferrari 488 GTB - once again, we're not aware of any mods being fitted to the Prancing Horse.

And since the power-to-weight ratio of the 670 Maranello toy beats that of the Bentley, you might expect the battle to be less than interesting. However, we need to mention that the rear-wheel-drive nature of the Fezza means the Bentley has a massive advantage during the initial phase of the race.

When it comes to the aural part of these battles, the clip isn't exactly revealing, but we'd expect the 488 to grab the win easily.

P.S.: In case you happen to be in a hurry and wish to skip the review bits, you should now that the drag racing action mentioned above awaits you at the 4:46 point of the video.
