2012 Bentley Continental GT Base Review
A Truly Exciting Daily Driver — Overall the car is fantastic. As mentioned the only negatives are the gas mileage, the amount of space in the back seats and maybe maintenance costs (though nothing has happened to mine that was not standard maintenance under warranty). The car definitely draws attention to itself. You can expect quite a few turned heads and the occasional person taking a picture with their phone. That's probably not everyones "thing" but its worth a few laughs.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Ride is fantastic, engine is more powerful than anyone needs (this is a compliment, not a complaint!), exhilarating when you put your foot to the floor but comfortable, smooth and luxurious when you're not trying to show off.
Cons: Back seats are unusable for anyone above the age of 10. From a driving perspective the car really has no negatives as long as you are at the wheel or sitting up front.
