Bentley Continental GT and GTC: The New Icons of Elegance

The Grand Unveiling in Spain

Bentley has proven themselves again. They have introduced the new Continental GT and GTC models in Spain. These cars are so meticulously crafted that you cannot deny the automotive art they represent. GT and GTC are a perfect balance of old-age elegance with precision technology. Let’s see how these cars could be the pinnacle of luxury.

Bentley Exterior: Where Tradition Meets Modernity

Exterior Bentley

  • A New Face: Bentley has taken it seriously that beauty lies in the eyes. They have bid farewell to their twin headlights, even though they were iconic. With Stylish DRLs, the oval units are sleek and singular now. The inspiration for this design has come from the Bentley Batur to capitalize on the nostalgia of familiarity associated with it.
  • Diamond Grille: There is a complex diamond pattern on the new grille to accommodate the combination of the features of radar and camera for the ADAS features.
  • Sculpted Silhouette: A posture as elegant as the Lion King’s Simba, the stance of these cars is created by the long bonnet, wide rear fenders, and 22-inch rims. There is a beautifully integrated spoiler that is created by the boot lid.
  • Tail Light Elegance: The preserved elliptical shape of tail lights along with a windscreen-integrated stoplight, makes the tail lights much larger and structured.  It is the cherry on top of luxury.

Bentley Interior: The Lap of Luxury

  • Bently has decided to keep hold of elements like organ stop AC vent controllers and the triple-rotating center panel. These elements can switch between analogue dials, a touchscreen, or a matching dashboard panel.
  • Tech-Savvy: In the latest ADAS there is an ‘environmental awareness’ display. You also get built-in apps like Spotify, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
  • Sumptuous Seating: The configuration for seating is 2+2 which comprises diamond-quilted leather seats.  They also have a ‘speed’ variant embroideries for seats. The colors of the trim are customizable having the options of green and orange.

Under the Hood: Power and Efficiency Redefined

  • Hybrid V8: The biggest change is the switch to a hybrid V8 engine, replacing the legendary W12. This 4.0-liter engine, paired with an electric motor, delivers a massive 782hp and 1,000Nm of torque.
  • Performance: Can go from 0-100kph in just 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of 335kph. It also offers an all-electric range of 80km.
  • Braking and Suspension: Massive 420mm front and 380mm rear discs ensure superior braking, while air springs and twin-valve dampers provide a smooth ride.

GoMechanic’s Take: A Blend of Tradition and Innovation

Here are the reasons why we’re excited about the new Bentley Continental GT and GTC:

  • Eco-Friendly Power: If you are a person who is constantly worried about carbon footprints, the hybrid V8 is your deal. Better mileage and lower emissions make this a win for the environment.
  • Advanced Safety: When it comes to safety, Bentley’s new ADAS Package is at the top. It provides real-time vehicle monitoring keeping you protected on the screen.
  • Luxurious Connectivity: Features like wireless Apple CarPlay and pre-conditioning the cabin ensure that luxury and convenience go hand in hand.

Reflecting on Authentic Luxury

The features of Bentley Continental GT and GTC are so authentic that these cars don’t need an exaggerated narrative. The luxury in these cars are not defined by the amplified words like premium, sophisticated, etc. It is defined by the details of the features of the car. The elegance of these features should be stated as a simple fact and not as flashy gimmicks.
