Bentley first used the Continental name all the way back in 1952. That first model ran through 1965 and was then revived in 1984, when it lasted through 2002. In 2003, after having been purchased by the Volkswagen Group, Bentley introduced a new version of the vehicle – the Bentley Continental GT. Now a grand tourer available in either fastback or convertible configurations, the model was more stunning and sophisticated than ever before. Fast forward several more years, and the Continental GT has undergone two generational shifts, with the most recent introducing the all-new 2020 Bentley Continental GT, available right here in St. Louis MO.
Powered by a brand-new 6.0L twin-turbocharged W12 engine, the redesigned Continental GT is a beast. It’s capable of generating 626 horsepower alongside 664 pound-feet of torque, which, despite its relatively heavy curb weight of 4,947 pounds, enables the Continental GT to get from a complete stop up to 60 miles per hour in just 3.6 seconds and to hit a top speed of 207 miles per hour. Of course, performance is only one part of what makes Bentley vehicles so incredible.
They’re also packed full of some of the best premium content. For instance, the new Bentley Rotating Display is front and center in the vehicle’s interior. This incredible feature allows you to decide between a trio of traditional analog instruments – a compass, a temperature gauge and a chronograph timer – or an incredible intuitive and advanced 12.3” infotainment display featuring connected services such as Apple CarPlay. That’s all just one feature.
The 2020 Continental GT is packed with other great technology, including a host of intelligent driver assistance features like Lane Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition, matrix beam headlights, My Bentley connected car services, a head-up display, a night vision camera and so much more.
