Continental GTC S
Styled to stand out from the crowd
The Continental GTC S
The Continental GTC S is a luxurious grand tourer with the style and attitude to excite at first sight. The Continental’s familiar lines and classic British craftsmanship take on a darker, more purposeful edge, thanks to black exterior details that imbue its shape with extra definition.
Sit behind the wheel and the excitement only grows. With four driving modes ranging from the relaxed ride of Comfort Mode to the excitement of Sport Mode, this is a car that delivers an elemental experience, whether you drive it with the roof up or down.
The Blackline Specification adds a darker, more sharply defined edge to the iconic design of the Continental GTC, replacing the chrome exterior detailing with black, to devastating effect. In addition to the Blackline Specification, the headlamps and the tail lamps have been treated with a dark tint, perfectly complementing their black bezels. Black door mirrors and tailpipes complete the picture.
The fabric roof can be commissioned in your choice of seven colours, including a head-turning tweed option. And when you drive with the roof down, the interior and exterior will appear as one – so a certain cohesion is essential. The car’s identity is clear from the moment you lay eyes on it – especially with the top down. Each one of the fluted seats bears an embroidered ‘S’ emblem – a badge you will also see emblazoned on the fascia and the interior treadplates.
An upholstery design exclusive to Bentley’s ‘S’ models combines Dinamica with leather throughout, right down to the gear lever and the heated steering wheel, where the tactile feel of Dinamica guarantees a sure grip.
A twin-turbocharged 4.0 litre V8 petrol engine delivers 542 bhp (550 PS) – which means you can go from zero to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds) and on to a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h). You can open or close the roof at speeds of up to 30 mph (50 km/h). Four driving modes mean you can set the driving characteristics to suit you. As well as Comfort, Bentley and Custom, which lets you create your own mode, there is Sport Mode, which calibrates the car’s settings for a truly thrilling experience.
With Sport Mode activated, the car sounds as good as it looks, thanks to the thrilling roar emitted by the Sports Exhaust. Think of it as one more reason to drive the Continental GTC S with the top down. The engine features variable displacement, which means that when driving in a relaxed fashion, four of the eight cylinders switch off, to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Put your foot down in earnest and full power returns instantaneously.
There is a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless Apple CarPlay, plus a choice of audio systems including the optional Naim for Bentley system, for unparalleled sound.
The My Bentley app gives you 24/7 access to your car, enabling you to check the locks, lights and fuel levels. It can even alert you if the alarm goes off.
Installed as standard, the City Specification is a package of driver assistance features for urban driving, while the optional Touring Specification adds features that make highway driving easier.
With the optional Front Seat Comfort Specification, you can enjoy cooling ventilation and massage functions, as well as heated armrests and neck warmers – so you can drive your car with the top down, whatever the weather.
