I know it’s a bit late, but a new 2018 / 2019 Bentley like this is always worth a post. Mat Watson from Carwow.com gets to review the new GT. Yes, that includes taking it out for a quick test drive. The new Continental GT 4 seater Coupe is, in my opinion, one of the best looking Bentley’s ever produced.
It is, however, ever so slightly let down by the way the back has been designed. The small oval rear lights and the way it narrows down makes the rear of the car not as “Beastly” as what the rest of the car is. I’m just being picky, It’s still a real beauty, a real statement of a car. What a monster.
The exterior is something special, but inside is almost just as good. As you would expect from Bentley, the quality of the interior, including all those small but noticeable details and beautiful finishing touches that give it the wow factor are second to none. Except to Rolls Royce of course.
The dials in the new Bentley Continental GT Coupe, although they look analogue, they are actually digital. The doors can automatically close on their own if they are left ajar. The new Continental GT Coupe weights over 2 Tons, but it can still go from 0 – 60 MPH in 3.7 seconds. Mat apparently did it faster @ 0 – 60 in 3.6 seconds.
The 6 litre W12 Twin Turbo engine @ 635 BHP is extremely powerful, but smooth and super refined. Being so powerful, and petrol powered, as you can imagine, the cost to run this thing won’t be cheap. But if you’ve got the £160,000 to spend to buy the car, it’s pretty obvious you’re not going to be counting the pennies to scrape the cost of a full tank of petrol together.
Mat Wilson provides a good, honest review of this car in the video. I liked the 5 not so good points and 5 features that really stand out about the car. This video review keeps it real. Yes, it is a super car, and it’s not perfect, but its not far off the mark. Stunning vehicle.
