The Bentley Continental GT is a true classic and has been around for more than a decade. Equipped with a W12 engine, the drive is smooth with precise variable power assisted steering that turns on the most demanding corner. In a meager 4 seconds, the car speeds to 60 mph and its top speed goes all the way up to 206 miles an hour. Weighing an impressive 5,060, the Continental GT Speed is Bentley’s fastest and most powerful Continental ever.  This car is grand with classic styling and powerful aesthetic.

The exterior has a sleek redesigned front and rear end spoiler.The side of the vehicle features a “B” shaped fender that was borrowed from the Mulsanne. We test drove a convertible apple green Bentley Continental GT which was quite a unique color.

The unusual color brought out a fresh perspective on an iconic vehicle – definitely a head turner. The exterior glistens in the sun with slick luxurious lines. The silhouette is enhanced with its rich paint colors and 21” directional sports alloy wheels.

Marlin (rich metallic blue), and Camel are the new colors available for the Speed model. Seventeen exterior paint finishes are part of the core color palette and the dealer can show you almost 100 optional finishes.

Onboard Wi-fi option is available for $1330 and the car comes with its own SIM card that owners can use AT & T to connect with an existing or new data plan.  The car comes with a GPS and XM radio.

Smaller diamond upholstery is unique to the Speed models and holds you securely when you are driving intensely. The seats have ultra-fine quality which is nothing less than what you would expect from Bentley. Carbon fiber and wood adorn the interior of the vehicle creating a private club ambiance. Stitching is impeccable and craftsmanship is of the highest quality.

 

This car is perfectly designed for cruising. The sounds system is top quality with a clarity that relaxes the soul. We drove to the sounds of Claude Challe’s Buddha Bar and listened to down tempo beats. We took the car from Rodeo Drive all the way up to the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The Bentley Continental GTS has plenty of power and its signature look has never gone out of style. It is the epitome of style, elegance and sophistication.
