Bentley Continental – Evolution of an icon

A few years ago I was lucky enough to drive an Aston Martin for a review I was writing and it was love at first sight! Then I got to drive a Bentley Continental GT and my world changed forever. Maybe because I am a lady and people just do not expect us to be at the wheel of such a powerful car but the feel and the sound when you put you foot down is beyond belief. To date this is the fastest car I have ever driven (am I allowed to admit that?) and one of the most luxurious. The Bentley Continental GT is one of the most iconic cars on the road today.

The Continental name first entered the company’s lexicon in 1952 with the R-Type Continental – arguably the world’s first Grand Tourer. With a top speed of 120 mph it was the fastest four-seater in the world at the time of its launch. Many of the 208 examples produced were coachbuilt by Mulliner – a name that is still closely associated with Bentley to this day.

 

With just three strokes of the designer’s pen, the shape of the Continental comes to life – the striking power line, muscular rear haunches and swooping, fast roof line. These three elegant styling cues have remained a fundamental part of the Continental’s DNA over six decades.

Today’s Continental elegantly fulfils the same grand-touring brief as its forebear. With immense W12 power, a top speed of 206 mph and an unsurpassed ability to cross continents in total comfort, the Continental GT Speed is a truly extraordinary car.
