Review

The Bentley Continental GT is a fine grand tourer that gets the balance between sports car and luxury car just about spot on.

get the best price

The long list of standard equipment includes 21in alloy wheels, full Matrix LED headlights, a 10-speaker, 650-watt audio system, wi-fi and a 12.3in touchscreen infotainment system. However, it’s disappointing that you have to pay extra for automatic city braking with pedestrian recognition.

While other options are likely to follow, right now the only engine available is a 6.0-litre W12 which develops a whopping 626bhp. That's enough to get the 2.2-tonne Continental GT from 0-60mph in just 3.6sec and onto a top speed of 207mph.
