The all-new Bentley Continental GT

The new Bentley Continental GT not only looks incredible, thanks to the efficient, optimized mix of materials that make up the body, the Continental also meets the most demanding durability, crash, stiffness, and structural-stiffness requirements.

Super Foaming technology, developed in the aerospace industry, was required while developing the the highly sculpted surface of the body.

All exterior panels are crafted in aluminium with the exception of the boot lid, which is moulded in a composite material to allow for the discreet sub-surface inclusion of all vehicle antennae and a complex styled form.

Over 50,000 engineering hours have gone into developing the Continental GT’s structural performance. Consequently, the most challenging global torsional and bending stiffness target ever set by Bentley has been achieved.

Although its body a true statement of luxury, the Continental GT’s performance is equally impressive, going from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and reaching a top speed of 333 km/h thanks to the enhanced version of the renowned 6.0 litre W12 TSI engine.
