About the Bentley Continental GT
The Bentley Continental GT arrived in 2003 as replacement for the previously discontinued Continental R and T. It was the first of three new Continental models, followed soon after by the GTC convertible and the Flying Spur sedan.
The previous Continental was built upon a Rolls Royce platform, but the new model switches to VW's D-Platform. The other two current Continental models also share this foundation.
The new Continentals house a Volkswagen-engineered twin supercharged W-12, which produces 552 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. A six speed automatic transmission is another Bentley first, along with the W-12. Bentley adds a steering wheel-mounted paddle shift for manual gear changes. Much of the GT's mechanics are borrowed from the VW Phaeton, which also shares the D-Platform.
Before the Spur leaves Bentley's Crewe, England assembly plant, it is eligible for many Mulliner finishing upgrades. It is not as customizable as the Azure or the Arnage, but it is also offered at a much lower price. While there is no such thing as an entry-level Bentley, shoppers should know that opting for the high-performance Spur instead of the ultra-luxury Arnage will save them about $150,000.
