Breathtaking, elegant, modern. Now in its third generation, Bentley’s (@bentleymotors) iconic Continental GT sets the bar once again for Grand Tourers. Designed and handcrafted in the UK, the Continental GT is the product of countless craftspeople utilizing the finest materials to create the most exquisite vehicle, inside and out. No fewer than 10 square meters of wood are used to carefully detail the impeccably crafted interior, a process that takes nine hours alone just to fit the wooden inlays. The centerpiece of the interior is Bentley’s largest ever touchscreen, a 12.3-inch retina-quality digital display that is completely customizable. When not in use, the screen swivels out of sight, hidden behind a stunning wooden cover.

A revised 6.0-liter 12-cylinder engine delivers effortless power, launching the all-wheel drive GT from zero to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

Bentley’s bespoke Mulliner Driving Specification includes these striking, lightweight 22-inch forged alloy wheels and embroidered Bentley emblems on the headrests. Further customization is possible with more than 70 available exterior colors and 15 choices of interior trims for near endless combinations to suit your style.

The new GT’s profile is longer and lower than the outgoing model, though its muscular rear haunches remain. Inspired by fine jewelry, the Bentley’s LED headlights sparkle like and deliver a three-dimensional depth for improved nighttime visibility.
