The new Continental GT First Edition is the most exquisitely appointed expression of the new car. Created to celebrate the launch of this groundbreaking grand tourer, it represents a stunning showcase of Bentley craftsmanship and design.
The specification of the interior has been curated by the designers themselves and brings together the very best features available on the new Continental GT. This includes the Bentley Rotating Display, which enables the driver to switch between three different fascia panels: the default 12.3” high resolution touchscreen, a more classically styled alternative instrument panel, with three handcrafted analogue dials, and a clean, veneer-only face, for an uninterrupted flow of wood, right across the dashboard.
A number of handcrafted details identify the car as the First Edition, including discreet First Edition badging to the interior and exterior.
A suite of state-of-the-art driver assistance systems and infotainment features designed to enhance safety, comfort and convenience make the Bentayga an innovative, advanced and connected luxury SUV.
It offers the widest range of on- and off-road drive settings of any vehicle via Bentley’s Drive Dynamics Mode and optional Responsive Off-Road Setting. Up to eight modes are available, allowing drivers, at the simple turn of a dial, to select the perfect dynamic set-up for any surface or road condition. This versatility is complemented by Bentley Dynamic Ride (electrically activated 48V active roll control) and Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS).
The new Continental GT features clean, superformed lines and a wide, low body, evoking a sense of speed and presence. On unlocking the car, a pre-programmed sequence of exterior lighting welcomes you. To complement the car’s striking interior design, the interior mood lighting (fitted as standard) can be configured to your preference. With lighting strips created to accentuate the car’s key design lines, you can choose vibrant or muted settings in seven colours, as well as backlighting the treadplates in your chosen colour.
Created for agile, exhilarating driving, the new Continental GT is built on an innovative chassis and electrical architecture, featuring a completely new 6.0 litre W12 engine and an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, for smooth, fast and efficient gear changes.
As a result, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds) and deliver a phenomenal top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h).
