Bentley Continental | Review
Posted on January 8, 2021
What can be said about the ultimate luxury car that has not already been said? The Bentley Continental is an amazing feat of engineering, design, style, and luxury. When wanting elegance and power in a car that will be noticed, drivers do not have to look further than the Bentley Continental. It looks great. It drives great. It is great.
Bentley Continental Models and Price
Redefining the grand tourer category, the Bentley Continental is offered in six model configurations: GT, GT Convertible, GT V8, GT V8 Convertible, GT Mulliner, and GT Mulliner Convertible.
The Continental GT V8 and the Continental GT balance beauty and power for an incredible driving experience with the GT featuring Bentley's amazing W12 engine. The GT V8 Convertible and GT Convertible combine luxury with open-air driving to allow drivers to bring the outside in during any trip.
Bentley recently added the exclusive Continental GT Mulliner and GT Mulliner Convertible to the lineup, which somehow are even more technologically and mechanically advanced than the original models and features even more luxurious details.
Even the cheapest model of the Bentley Continental will cost drivers over a quarter of a million dollars with most models ending up closer to or over $400,000. Purchasing a Bentley Continental is not for the faint of heart or light of pocketbook.
Bentley updated its existing V8 and W12 for the 2021 model year, providing more power than ever before. The V8 delivers 542 horsepower, launching the car to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds. The larger W12 engine delivers 626 horsepower and a 3.7 second 0-100 km/h acceleration speed. Both feature a dual-clutch automatic transmission, and all Continental GTs come standard with all-wheel drive.
Bentley is known for luxury, and that is what the Continental provides. Every detail has been painstakingly thought out, right down to the refined diamond knurling finish on the polished chrome elements.
From the engine to the interior, everything about the Bentley Continental can be personalized and chosen by the driver. For example, buyers can choose from 15 interior hides to cover everything from the seats to the door panels and back again. Buyers can choose the carpet colour and opt for hand cross-stitching, in addition to other customization options.
The Bentley Continental features a 12.3-inch infotainment display which can be rotated with a three-gauge panel showing the exterior air temperature, time, and a compass. Smartphone integration is standard, as is a digital gauge that allows control of most of the Continental's features directly from the steering wheel.
