Bentley reveal all-new 2018 Continental GT

2018 Continental GT

Bentley has pulled the wraps off the all-new 2018 Continental GT.

Inspired by the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept, Bentley has given the model a new lease on life with a longer and lower profile.

By moving the front axle 135 mm, Bentley’s flagship sedan sports a longer bonnet and lower front end.

Around the back, Bentley has fitted slimmer, circular LED rear taillights which perfectly match the exhaust tips.

The ultra-luxurious interior of the 2018 Continental GT has been spruced up and features the traditional quilted leather upholstery, hand-polished chrome accents and authentic wood trim.

Traditional analogue gauges have been replaced by a high-definition digital display, and it’s not the only display unit which is new. Highlighting the centre console is a 12.3-inch infotainment system which, at first glance is hidden behind an elegant veneer panel.

Additionally, this panel does bare a secret as the “third” display shows off three unique analogue dials; a compass, thermometer and a chronometer.

What powers the 2018 Continental GT?

First Edition or launch models will be powered by the companies signature twin-turbo W12. Mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, 626 horsepower is channelled to each corner allowing the luxury coupe to launch to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 333 km/h.

Production for the all-new 2018 Bentley Continental GT will start later this year with sales of the model expected to begin in early Spring 2018. Bentley has yet to finalise a price although we’re expecting a modest increase compared to the outgoing model.
