Bentley Continental GT

Crewe and for the design engineering team, the new Bentley Continental GT Coupe is an opportunity to take a bold and exciting to the direction of one of the most revered names of Bentley - Continental. An innovative and highly successful Bentley Continental GT in 2003 was the first step in Bentley's renaissance, and defined a new market segment. It 'was a luxury GT offers excellent ease of use, which has remained true to the spirit of Bentley Grand Touring.

Now, the 2012 Continental GT four-seat coupe builds on the success of its iconic predecessor, capturing the spirit of the GT, but with a more standard design, engineering, luxury, craftsmanship, dynamic performance and daily practice refinement.

A well sculpted body give the new Bentley Continental GT coupe an even more clear, more defined look. The contemporary interior offers new levels of cabin craftsmanship of design, comfort and luxury. The seats, for example, provide even greater support and rear leg-room, a sweeping dashboard even more style and modernity. New features touchscreen infotainment system of the state of the art navigation, Google Maps and entertainment, while the last speaker Balanced Mode Radiator technology and Dirac Dimensions � digital sound processing provide a better quality Audio.

Under the shadow associations Continental GT has always been a car that cut to the Bentley tradition, with hand-stitched leather, veneer book matched, and sporting a mischievous. And in this car has always been a Volkswagen Phaeton. Although the continental shelf Phaeton moves all the trappings of German participation was, as a new center stack replaces Wolfsburgian the car leaving the air conditioning controls and slandered, slightly reskinned VW infotainment system. Inside Central is a new eight-inch touch screen that guides you through the fluidity of Google Maps, a 30 gig drive, and the $ 7015 optional 11-speaker Naim stereo sound is clear that Ronald Reagan was in the capital defender, protector and deshackler.

The world was first presented to the Bentley Continental GT in 2003. A fresh design, two-door shared its platform with the Volkswagen Phaeton and a twin-turbo variant of the VW W12 compact. At that time (around 2003), Bentley boasted that the new luxury "Gran Turismo" cut would be to open an entirely new market segment. And they were right - from the exotic sports car lowered at the time, was the new Continental GT, a car with a gentleman upright posture and equipment on an equal footing with the company's flagship models other. The proclamation was partially heard, since the only other car really compete in the segment at the time was the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, a model priced around $ 40 000 less.

Eight years later, the Continental GT has been a huge success. Most manufacturers did not rush to invent their own cut $ 160 000 in its path, rich clients swallowed the new two-door Bentley so quickly that the Crewe factory was unable to meet demand (Bentley Continental GT cut 700 sold in the U.S. in 2004 - after selling only 400 Bentley in the last year in total). To date, nearly 8,000 GT coup� sold, and a range of sedans and Continental Dropheads was generated by cutting, the sale of thousands of people.

Inspired by Bentley's iconic past, the design team under the direction of Bentley Design Director Dirk van Braeckel, has created a very modern, sculpted body, built with advanced production technologies to ensure the highest standards of quality integrity and body.

Aluminum Super forming technology is working to create the front fenders and tailgate. This heats up the aluminum panels to almost 500 degrees before the formulation of the pressure. Using a single block of aluminum, no seams or welding is required.

The latest construction techniques of the body deliver crisp, the lines of well-defined function and form to all areas of the exterior design. The power lines behind the familiar and thighs - the echoes of the 1950 original R-Type Continental - now even more pronounced rays to create very different surfaces, which brings the sensation of a coach built for real the new coupe.

New GT coupe look is bolder than ever. The classic Bentley radiator grille is more vertical matrix, while the new headlight design, the traditional four-lamp format, has exquisite jewel-like details, including eye-catching, LED light works.

In the rear, 'floating' LED lamps extend Bentley firm around the edges of the wings, with emphasis on the width of the new coupe and proactive attitude. The track is 41mm wider front and 48mm at the rear than the previous model. Trunk lid design has a powerful reason for the "double horseshoe", said the new Bentley Mulsanne, while flared elliptical exhaust pipes enhance the sports references in the new Bentley Continental GT.


The body shape of the new Bentley Continental GT Coup� is more streamlined after a thorough analysis in the wind tunnel. Along with a wide range of basic improvements (including wheel arches and exhaust aerodynamic aids) the GT drag coefficient has been reduced to 0.33Cd and lift the front and rear axle has also been reduced to create greater stability at high speeds.

The new Bentley Continental GT is defined by 20-inch alloy wheels as standard, for the first time, the Continental family, the ability to update the 21-inch models. Three wheel styles are offered - to 20-inch five-spoke version and two variants Elegant and split-rim 21-inch Sport, which come in various chrome and painted finishes.

The interior, however, is now softer and more welcoming. The first level controls, instrumentation and dash vents has not changed, but are now more cleanly integrated into the rich woods and smooth skin around them. Most now you wear shiny metal. An eight-inch touch screen powered by VW's new original architecture highlights the central console (which could not come soon enough - the output was one of the most time of the first car). The steering wheel is fresh and new design of the pedals. Even there is important news to the seats. Mastodons last year were replaced by thinner and lighter "cobra-design" of security, seat belt anchors placed in the frame instead of the seats.

The cabin of all the latest models of Bentley, as the cabin of a yacht as 10 million, is a wonderful place to see the surface drag. The interior is lined with beautiful gardens soft touch leather, and only the finest veneers and cool-touch brushed metal are visible. All controls and equipment operating with a solid feel, and everything feels good. The front seats two new 'Cobra' is comfortable, supportive and full of adjustment. Sat addition to variable heating, cooling adjustment, lumbar cushions and pull the thigh massage to present a seamless extension of the seat bottom. Regardless of height, is the head generous legroom and shoulder and front passenger two. And thanks to the lack of B pillars, outward visibility is not as bad, with special mention due to the large side mirrors.

The story is not so great for those who occupy the two rear seats, unfortunately. Even if the names are just as rich as before (minus the massage and cooling functions), there is little room for human anatomy below the knee. Unless the other passengers to share the most DNA Flat Stanley or the front seats moved far ahead, no one to sit there long.


Bentley Continental GT is a will to choose between two very special high-performance engines. In addition, the new 575PS version of Crewe's prestigious 6.0-liter W12 engine, a new high-performance 4.0-liter V8 engine option will be introduced in late 2011.

The new 4.0-liter V8 engine respects the environment, Bentley's commitment to provide the transmission system reaches 40 percent improvement in CO2 emissions. The new V8 is specifically designed to provide all technical Bentley exhilarating power and torque as a synonym of Marque. New engine built Crewe also offers class-leading power to CO2 ratio.

At launch, the new Bentley Continental GT Coupe is powered by the latest evolution of Bentley's acclaimed 12-cylinder, 6-liter twin-turbo engine is calibrated to provide even greater performance due to increased power, torque and fuel efficiency.

Designed in a unique configuration 'W', it is the most compact and technologically advanced 12-cylinder engine in the world. Four camshafts and 48 valves allow the engine to breathe effortlessly and help create the characteristic Bentley wave of torque. It is also capable of running on petrol (gasoline), E85 bioethanol or a mixture of both - all from a single tank.

In 2008, Bentley has announced a major environmental program, which included a 15 percent improvement in efficiency of power transmission and the adoption of the full range of Bentley FlexFuel technology in 2012. Bentley FlexFuel models are able to provide the potential CO2 reductions up to 70 percent "well-to-wheel basis' - measured by the CO2 released from the fuel production (well), through its combustion or deployment (wheel) .

In order to create power and torque remain constant (irrespective of the fuel) Advanced fuels, continually monitors the quality of the relationship between the fuels used. It then controls the engine control unit adjusts the timing of the engine. This provides a continuous supply of power for which Bentley engines are renowned, and ensures that no compromise in performance when using fuels that create less CO2 emissions.

Other changes include a new Bentley Continental GT Coupe engine is low-friction, lightweight components that allow the W12 engine REV-format even more freely, but the latest engine management system and twin, low inertia turbochargers optimized to ensure minimal turbo lag.

Overall, Bentley Continental GT Coupe is 65 kg lighter than its predecessor, thanks to the reduction in all parts of the engine of the car through the new places. Its power to 15ps and a torque of 50 Nm - and 575PS (567bhp/423kW) and 700nm (� 516 ft.) - the result of an improvement of 6 percent of the power of the new GT in terms of weight, so it can to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds (0-100 km / h in 4.6 seconds) and a top speed of 198 mph (318 km / h).

The increased power and torque is transferred to four-wheel drive system via an upgraded six-speed transmission Quick Shift, which halves shift times (for only 200 milliseconds). The gearbox also revised the ability to deliver double downshifts (sixth to fourth gear, for example) and improves acceleration in the speed range. To handle the power and torque, the planetary gear set of the six-speed ZF transmission is also strengthened.

Positive torque during downshifts is achieved through engine and gearbox electronic controller interaction for extra gas and fuel injection during the overrun, 'jump' copy manual accelerator for precise rev matching. During transmission upshifts, fuel and ignition cut momentarily to give faster mechanical shift times through torque reduction, improving the quality of, and sustainability.

Bentley continues to control the air cushion suspension (CDC) is set to several hundred times per second, the coupe multiple personalities. The system lowers the car at high speed to improve stability and can be activated manually raise the vehicle to clean up the steep alleyways. Although it works automatically, the damping of the suspension can also be customized through configuration of the touch screen. Acceleration and braking hand, when it comes to ride quality, weight is the best friend of the great court. No less a giant sinkhole appeared capable of diverting the path of motion Continental GT.

The entire history of the iconic Bentley Grand Tourer has forged the reputation of the brand. In 1950, a nice R-Type Continental sets new standards for performance and style. In 2003, the Bentley Continental GT Coupe redefined the luxury market combines supercar performance and dynamism of the amazing convenience.

Now, the new Continental GT coupe sets even higher standards in all areas of design, craftsmanship and technology.
