The Continental GT has been known to offer a fine blend of performance and luxury equipment, and the new gen model takes it to the next level with athletic body style and performance figures.     

Mechanically, the new Continental GT will get a 6-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine that puts out 617bhp of power and 900Nm of torque. The powerful engine comes mated to a twin-clutch gearbox that powers the active all-wheel-drive system. The new Continental GT accelerates from 0 to 100kmph in 3.7 seconds, and is capable of achieving a top speed of 333kmph.

The 2018 Bentley Continental GT is longer and lower than the current generation model. The front features the latest LED Matrix technology that utilises the finest cut-crystal glasses that offer three-dimensional depth. The vehicle flaunts the traditional large grille on the front.

The rear also gets a radical styling in the form of new tail lamps shaped into ellipses and twin oval exhaust pipes. The tail lamps gets a cut-crystal effect with three dimensional depth. The neat lines at the rear is carried forth from the Bentley family.   

The interior gets sustainably sourced veneers which includes Koa, Bentley's newest veneer, along with hand-polished chrome detailing. The car gets a large 12.3-inch retina-quality digital MMI display. Hand crafted detailing work can be seen in the interior. 

The centre console is finished to match the lower fascia, but can be specified in a new technical finish which is inspired by the delicate mechanical surfacing inside the finest automatic Swiss watches, known as the Cotes de Geneve. Looking at intricate details, the car also gets bronze inserts between the primary control surface.
