The news of the Continental GT will have been loaded this year. While its supersports variant, strong of 710 hp, pointed the tip of his muzzle last January, now the British coupe is renewed upstream of the Frankfurt fair. The evolution of the Continental GT will not go unnoticed as Bentley has deeply reviewed its look but also its mechanics.
No matter the quarrels at the bottom. Bentley can uncompromisingly advance the commercial success of its Continental GT: 66,000 copies of the first generation have been sold in fifteen years. Remarkable, for a car whose base price is around 200,000 €. Today, therefore, the new generation does not intend to upset the recipe.
The technology has not been put aside. Behind the wheel, the dials have been replaced by a high-resolution screen using 3D technology for a beautiful rendering. The centerpiece of this exceptional cockpit is the central rotating device with three faces and an occupant-facing front, a wide screen (12.3 inches), three dials (chronometer, compass, thermometer) or then an extension of the dashboard.
This does not prevent it from reaching 100 km / h in 3.7s and 333 km / h in peak, in increased comfort thanks to a new air suspension and electronic actuators connected to stabilizer bars and powered by a system electric 48V. The Bentley Continental GT will be in a few days at the Frankfurt 2017 show.
