Bentley Continental GT with new aprons
A n the front, the Bentley Continental GT has redesigned aprons and a narrower grille. Furthermore, Bentley wants to emphasize the fenders more, which should make the models look more confident. The fenders have new ventilation gills and chrome-plated 'V8 S' and 'W12' lettering.
The rear apron has also been modified and widened, and the trunk lid has been designed more concisely. The V8 S and GT Speed models also have a new diffuser. The facelift of the Bentley Continental GT is rounded off with new light alloy wheels in sizes 20 and 21 inches. In addition, Bentley offers three new paint finishes in metallic blue, soft gold and light blue.
W-Lan for the Bentley Continental Models
In the interior of the Continental GT series, a new sports steering wheel is used that is supposed to be more ergonomic. In addition, the metal shift paddles are enlarged and have a better grip. Dials and graphics are being refreshed and LEDs are now illuminating the interior. For this purpose, a uniform gear lever is installed in the facelift models. The V8 and V8 S have a new, hidden storage compartment between the rear seats. It allows electronic devices such as smartphones or tablets to be charged. W-Lan is also finding its way. Of course, there are also new upholstery designs and covers.
But there is also a lot going on under the hood: the six-liter W12 will develop a whopping 590 hp instead of 575 - the maximum torque increases from 700 to 720 Nm. Thanks to cylinder deactivation, fuel consumption drops by 5 percent and is 14.1 liters per 100 kilometers.
Flying Spur gets cylinder deactivation
The Bentley Flying Spur will also be revised in the course of the model year. Here too, 20-inch models and the 21-inch new light alloy rims are available. As with the GT models, the interior is also being revised. The W12 in the Flying Spur remains unchanged at 625 hp, but also receives cylinder deactivation and therefore has lower consumption and CO2 emissions of 333 g /km. Prices have not yet been announced.
