For The Bentley Continental GT offers effortless pace and provides all the prestigious image you could wish for.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Buyers have two flavours of Bentley Continental GT to choose from.

Many of the car’s well-heeled buyers will insist on having the range-topping GT Speed version, which comes with a ferocious 616bhp 6.0-litre engine. However, we’d recommend opting for the twin-turbocharged, direct-injection V8 model. It’s hardly any slower than the W12-powered car, it feels more agile and it also costs much less to buy and run. The fact remains, though, that only the super-rich will be able to afford the V8.

Both versions come with a whole bunch of luxury equipment, and Bentley will fit pretty much any item of luxury equipment at the buyer’s request – for a handsome fee, naturally.
