Super luxury coupe gets a make over.
The continental GT has been out for over 10 years now and Bentley thought they’d give it a more updated, sophisticated and modern look. Even the process to make certain parts of the body is new like the side panel. Bentley say that this new method called Super Formed technology allows for more ‘complex and sharper body lines’. This new shape is inspired by the beautifully futuristic EXP 10 Speed 6 concept car. Not bad.
The interior is where you’ll spend most of your time so of course it’s a precise demonstration of what the level of luxury provided by an almost 100 year old company is. It looks like you can hear an echo of a voice whispering the word luxury.
The engine has been pushed further in to give it better weight distribution with no compromise to the interior space and it hasn’t affected the luggage space as this one has improved.
